Yogaswami's Pilgrimage to India

a. Three times Yogaswami took the ferry from Ceylon to India. From Kashi’s Siva temples in the North to Tiruvannamalai and Madras in the South, he explored holy Bharat. b. During a pilgrimage to India, Yogaswami visited Ramana Maharishi, the sage of Siva’s Mount Arunachala who had become renowned. Their meeting was remarkable in its simplicity; neither spoke a word—two knowers of the Unknowable in perfect communion.

We make very little progress when we strive to conquer these baser instincts in a good mood. However, vast strides are possible when we are miserable and work with ourselves to replace our misery with joy and understanding.
