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.

Friends! Donation and charity are two means which provide us enormous opportunities. If we donate we experience mental peace and our soul is contented. But we must be cautious as to donate only to the needy persons. If we feed who is already overfed, he would fall sick. Hence,its useless being benevolent to those who do not deserve.

All of us are too scared of death because it seems like a demon. But, what is more perilous and dreadful than death is watching our fellowmen suffer while we do nothing for their betterment. We must engage part of our time in helping others in whatever manner we could. But, this should never be to get back name and fame. Rather it should be for our own self-improvement. Thus it would not be right to give any credit to ourselves as it inflates our ego. We must understand that benevolence helps none but ourselves. It teaches us to be patient and noble. Even if we refuse to donate, it would not make any difference to the society because the Supreme Being has bestowed everyone with adequate means for survival. Here our meager donations do not matter much, but, we might lose an opportunity to help others and eventually ourselves.

Friends! First a person ascertains his objectives, next he must try to focus all his energies towards it. But, for that he needs to accumulate sufficient power and strength. And this physical strength and mental invigoration can be acquired only through honest dedication and constant efforts to achieve the set goal. One must be fully devoted towards the purpose and should be continuously thinking about its attainment day in and day out. We must always ponder as to how it can be achieved. Labor! Labor! Labor! is the only tool that needs to be incorporated in our habits because there is no shortcuts to success! He who is completely oriented towards his targets deserves to succeed.

In order to procure capabilities and tenacity we need to be involved in good thoughts and humble deeds. Consequently we will be blessed through thousands of sources. And these blessings would help us to accumulate the required aptitude to attain our motive.

It is a sin to be weak, fragile and confused. A weakling is always overpowered and mocked at; subjected to numerous troubles and tribulations. Hence, we must always pray to the Ultimate, ” Oh Lord! please make us strong and confident so that we remain alert, successful and alive in your eyes, forever!”

Friends, Most of the time, your mind is consumed with of all types of things, topics and events. What others have done or said is most common occupation of your mind. When you are at home, you will think of your shop or office. While at work, you may worry about whether your children have reached home safely. Thoughts, memories and imaginations pertaining to relatives, friends, foes, celebrities, current affairs, reactions and to past interactions with people, plans for future gatherings, expectations from others, all of this is what your mind is engaged with all of the time. Your mind is always busy thinking one thing or another, but it is never looking at itself. When will it experience its own existence?
During my seclusion in the Himalayas, my Master asked me to forget about the world, my home, my family, everything. I obeyed him wholeheartedly.  This unconditional surrender helped me realize my soul-light.

The Supreme Being wishes to make arrangements for the transformation of the Era. The greatest foresightedness of awakened souls amongst us is to come forward and extend their hand. In coming days, none will be able to have his own wealth. It is definite that the government (community) will be the owner of all money and property. Everyone will earn his bread diligently. One may note it down as a definite prophecy to happen. Future will prove this fact as true verbatim. I feel, I must request the thoughtful people of the present age insisting, not to waste time in the complications of raising  capital and hoarding property for their future generations. We have seen the end of kings and landlords in India and elsewhere with our own eyes, now these eyes must get ready to see the event of declaration of personal property as public.
