The greatest among all the acts of bravery is the one in which we can earn the credit of correcting our own unrefined nasty habits. Other people could well help us when confronting with outside struggles or resolving others’ difficulties and they can also get us credit in one way or another. However, we will have to depend solely on our own personal efforts in carrying out the task of correcting our unworthy habits. For that reason, it has been designated as a mighty endeavor and anyone who undertakes it would aptly be called as a brave person in a real sense.

एकला चलो रे
हम अकेले चलें। सूर्य- चन्द्र की तरह अकेले चलने में हमें तनिक भी संकोच न हों। अपनी आस्थाओं को दूसरों के कहे- सुने अनुसार नहीं, वरन् अपने स्वतंत्र चिंतन के आधार पर विकसित करें। अंधी भेड़ों की तरह झुण्ड का अनुगमन करने की मनोवृत्ति छोड़ें। सिंह की तरह अपना मार्ग अपनी विवेक चेतना के आधार पर स्वयं निर्धारित करें। सहीं को अपनाने और गलत को छोड़ देने का साहस ही हमारे युग- निर्माण परिवार के परिजनों की वह पूंजी है, जिसके आधार पर हम युग साधना की वेला में ईश्वरीय प्रदत्त उत्तरदायित्व का सहीं रीति से निर्वाह कर सकेंगे

Friends! All of us must learn to practise love and compassion towards our fellow beings. We must imbibe such feelings within our conduct. Subsequently it will lead to happiness and peace all around.
It is our prime duty to love everyone in the same way as we love our parents, our children and our spouses. But, never should we expect anything in return, for as soon as we start expecting or demanding a price for our love, we exhibit a feeling of selfishness and ego. Hence, until and unless we discard envy, competition and comparison, we cannot experience the bliss of true and unconditional love.

Akhand Jyoti,
July 1959,
Pg.-8-9

भगवान् पर हुकूमत करना और भगवान् के सामने तरह- तरह की फरमाइशें पेश करना यह तो वेश्यावृत्ति का काम है। उपासना लौकिक कामनाओं के लिए नहीं, बल्कि भगवान् की साझेदारी के लिए, भगवान् को स्मरण रखने के लिए, आज्ञानुवर्ती होने के लिए और अपना समर्पण करने के उद्देश्य से होनी चाहिए। ऐसी उपासना ही फलदायी होती है।

“If you chant the Gayatri Mantra 24 times along with me, it will not only make your pronunciation pure but also my voices will be harmonized with yours. I have several voices. You have only one: the Vaikharee (voice of the tongue). I have the Madhyama (voice of the countenance),  the Para (voice of the heart) and the Pashyanti (voice of the mind). I chant Gayatri Mantra 24 times with these four voices in unison; you chant along too! This way the 24 Mantras will be as powerful as to 24,000 Mantras, because my voices are harmonized with them.
