Both the ways,
of light and darkness,
of knowledge and ignorance,
have been forever.
But the merits of worship are never destroyed.
The one who dies in the state of knowledge and brightness
achieves ultimate salvation,
but the one who departs from the body in the state of ignorance
and obscurity has to come back and undergo yet another birth.
And this succession of one birth after another
goes on until there is perfect light;
until that moment the seeker has to carry on his worship.
~ Revered Gurudev Swami Adgadanand Jee Paramhans ~
