It is not on this holy night of Sivarathri alone that you should contemplate on Siva. Your whole life must be lived in the constant presence of the Lord. Endeavour is the main thing; that is the inescapable consummation for all mortals. If you make the slightest effort to move along the path of your liberation, the Lord will help you a hundredfold. This is what this day conveys to you. Man is so called because he has the skill to do mañana. Mañana means inner meditation on the meaning and significance of what one has heard or read. But you have given up even the little sadhana that Sivarathri demands.
