The mind is the only instrument, which is at our disposal. It is our bounden duty that we seek, above all, to attain inner purity. Later on, it may be possible for us to achieve perfection; but it is necessary, as a first step to it, that the world should cease to hold out any attraction to us, so that we might use in an integral manner all the power of our spirit. It is only by means of the mind that we know the world around us, and it is therefore our duty to make the mind as perfect an instrument as possible. Whatever be the path that we might chose, the assiduous practice of meditation will furnish us with the means of obtaining the fullest control over the organism of the mind.
