I will light the match of smiles.
My gloom-veil will disappear.

I will behold my soul in the light of my smiles,
hidden behind the accumulated darkness of ages.

When I find myself, I will race through all hearts
with the torch of my soul smiles.

My heart will smile first, then my face and my eyes.
Every body part will shine in the light of smiles.

(Meditate, dwell on, and practice this in daily life.)

From Metaphysical Meditations


  1. I found this book when I was 21 years old.

    I read it very often, shared it with friends, and gave many copies as over the years.

    I still do!

    I have much of it in my consciousness, and I also like to read from it every year on Sri Yogananda’s birthday, which as we know is coming up very soon, in 2 days on January 5th.

    Jai Guruvev! Om Shanti ~

    1. Me too. I was 21 in the early 80s when I found it. This meditation means a great deal to me.
