Talks on 'Shivananda Lahiri' by Swami Advayananda - 

The Shivananda Lahari is a divinely beautiful poetic offering of 100 verses by Shri Adi Shankaracharya at the feet of Lord Shiva, in ecstatic moments of blissful Oneness with the Lord. Shri Shankaracharya implores the mind to let go of its vagaries and tune in with complete surrender to the Lord. Indeed it is the Lord's grace alone that will finally help the devotee cross the ocean of samsara, to effortlessly glide into the Waves of Bliss Divine. A must study to heighten one's devotion to the Lord and soar into the pinnacles of knowledge.

The seventh chapter of the Chandogya Upanishad is the famous dialogue between the great sage Sanatkumara and his younger brother, turned disciple, Narada.
Narada approaches Sanatkumara, saying that he knows all the Vedas and ancillary literature, but still has not overcome sorrow. Naradji being such an exalted sage, despite possessing all types of secular knowledge, how come he was still not experiencing everlasting joy?
Is it not that to be fulfilled and successful one should be expert in some worldly subject?
