“Faith and Meditation”

Paramahansa Yogananda said:

The Sanskrit word for faith is wonderfully expressive. It is visvas. The common literal rendering, “ to breathe easy; have trust; be free from fear.” does not convey the full meaning. Sanskrit svas refers to motions of breath, implying thereby life and feeling. Vi conveys the meaning of “opposite; without.” That is, he who’s breath, life, and feeling are calm, he can have faith/born of intuition; it cannot be possessed by persons who are emotionally restless. The cultivation of intuitive calmness requires unfoldment of inner life. When developed sufficiently, intuition brings immediate comprehension of truth. You can have this marvelous realization. Meditation is the way.
