Grasp as a bow the great weapon furnished by the Upanishads, and fix in it an arrow sharpened by meditation. Draw it with the mind concentrated on Brahman, and hit, oh gentle youth, on that target alone, the immortal Brahman. Pranava is the bow, Atma is the arrow, Brahman is the target. So, the Sadhaka must, like the practitioner of the art of archery, be unaffected by things that agitate the mind. He should pay one-pointed attention to the target. Then, he becomes the thing meditated upon.
