2.Moksha is not an object to be attained. It is inherent.
3.Impurity of mind is removed by Sadhana.
4.Dust is removed from the pond and water is seen. Similarly, Guru removes dust in our mind and Moksha is felt.
5.There is struggle in our mind. We have struggle of ‘being’ (about present) and ‘becoming’ (about future).
6.When internal struggle removed, external struggle (like war) is removed.
7.Enjoy each movement of Sadhana while doing Pranayama and cyclic meditation.
8.If Sadhana is enjoyed then we have full filled all our desires.
