NIYAMA 6 — Siddhanta Shravana, Scriptural Listening

Eagerly hear the scriptures, study the teachings and listen to the wise of your lineage. Choose a guru, follow his path and don't waste time exploring other ways. Read, study and, above all, listen to readings and dissertations by which wisdom flows from knower to seeker. Avoid secondary texts that preach violence. Revere and study the revealed scriptures, the Vedas and Agamas.

There is listening, and then there is LISTENING, reading, and READING. The caps indicate when the scripture actually sinks in in a comprehension from the inner mind. The real wisdom flows this way, in my opinion, not so much in words but in esoteric vibratory rates. But hey that's just me.
