Ponder
over all the things for which you have cried so far. You will find that
you have craved only for paltry things, for momentary distinctions, for
fleeting fame. Instead, you should cry only for God, for your own
cleansing and consummation. You should weep, for the six cobras that
have sheltered themselves in your mind, poisoning it with their venom:
Lust, anger, greed, attachment, pride and malice. Quieten them as the
snake charmer does with his swaying flute. The music that can tame them
is the Name of God. Thereafter, they become playthings; you can handle
them as you please. When these are laid low, you will gain equanimity
and you will remain unaffected by honour or dishonour, profit or loss,
joy or grief. - BABA 28 April 2008
