Devotion to Lord Shiva, expressing as meditation on His resplendent form, can be the stepping stone to have the most receptive mind. That in turn facilitates the insight into the timeless.
Meditating upon the Supreme Ruler, the Lord, accompanied by (Mother) Uma, a contemplative student goes beyond (all) darkness)!

Note: The Upanishads, which highlight non-duality, accommodate all the same upāsanā (meditation on name or form) as a means to purify the mind, leading the highest wisdom.Tags: mantra to ponder, Swami Chidananda
