Futility of Search

 For a beginner calming down the mind is a herculean task. He gets confused. Naturally he might feel frustrated and may conclude that the meditation and the search are futile. This is the stage where he should not lose faith. Scriptures say that having practiced austerities and asanas to purify mind and the body, it requires SADHANA (Practice) for several years. Even BUDDA had his enlightenment after seven years of stringent THAPAS. One has to go step by step. Concentration is having only one thought, while meditation is having no thoughts at all. It is in this state of stillness one can experience insightful rest and the consciousness move higher and higher and one becomes more and more intuitive and insight truth will be revealed. Thanks.
