Transcipt from the book " The Master As I saw Him " By Sister Nivedita

He was trying here to explain the idea of tapasya, in answer to my questions, and he spoke of the old way of lighting four fires, and sitting in the midst, hour after hour with the sun overhead, reining in the mind.

" WORKSHIP THE TERRIBLE! " he ended, " WORSHIP DEATH! All else is vain. All struggle is vain. That is the last lesson. Yet this is not the coward's love of death, not the love of the weak, or the suicide. It is the welcome of the strong man, who has sounded everything to its depths, and KNOWS that there is no alternative "

- Swami Vivekananda
