Question: What’s the difference between staying (in the ashram) for a month and staying for a half year?
What soaks in over time is so much better absorbed. It is like so many other things in life… the more months you lift weight, the bigger the muscles get. The longer you stay on a diet, the thinner you get… etc. etc. The longer you bask in the ocean of the transcendent, the more fully you integrate its qualities into your life, your physiology, your being.
