Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that a spiritual aspirant uses his body as a large piece of wood and his mantra as a smaller piece of wood used in creating fire by friction. Anandamurti then elaborates this metaphor, explaining that every entity has its own unique rhythm. When that rhythm comes in contact with the incantative rhythm of one's Ista mantra, one will finally reach the supreme abode, self realization. Anandamurti goes on explaining that through the friction described above, the mind becomes purified. Ultimately one realizes that one is Brahma. Such a person is called a pandita.
