# Saying
1 Offering jewels to God is a narrow-minded idea. Charity is the true ornament for the hand.
2 When you dedicate your every action to the Lord, you will receive enduring bliss as its reward.
3 Ego is very dangerous and powerful. It ruins your character.
4 The disease of over attachment to worldly objects can be cured only by the drug of attachment to God, cultivated through japa and dhyana.
5 Close your eyes to others faults, but keep them open to see your own mistakes.
6 Offer your virtues as flowers at God's altar. Virtues spread beauty and fragrance.
7 Your heart is like a big tank, senses are like taps. Fill your heart with the water of Divine Love. Only then you will experience Love through all the senses.
8 Love, Forbearance, Kindness and Compassion are the essential qualities for spiritual transformation.
9 The multiplicity of names and forms can be understood in their true nature only if the truth about their fundamental basis is recognised.
10 To gain liberation, to win Rama's grace, it is not enough to repeat His name; you have to practise the Rama principle.
11 Devotion (Bhakti) is not like a fever medicine that you take when you are ill; it must be your daily vitamin to keep good physical and mental health.
12 Renunciation is the power of battling against evil forces and holding the mind in check.
13 A disciplined life is the best offering you can make to the country or to the Divine in you.
14 Cool comforting conversation is most congenial to an aspirant. It is the habit that will take you faster to your goal.
15 Every true human being has the noble qualities of adherence to truth, duty, devotion and discipline.
16 When the fruit is ripe, it will fall off the branch of its own accord. Similarly, when renunciation (Vairagya) saturates your heart, you lose contact with the world and slip into the lap of the Lord.
17 To regard the Universe as a manifestation of God and to experience it as such is real devotion.
18 Mine, not thine; this sense of greed is the root of all evil. This distinction is applied even to GOD! -- my GOD, not yours! Your GOD, not mine!
19 Offer your sullied heart to the Lord. It is like presenting a soiled note to the Reserve Bank and getting a new one.
20 To secure God's Grace you must adhere to right conduct and observe purity in thought, word and deed.
21 The secret to peace and joy is: God first, the world next, myself last!
22 Our good conduct is our true wealth.
23 You can succeed in annihilating the mind by uprooting your impulses.
24 Try to conduct yourself in such a way as not to injure others.
25 Worship the husband as the Lord; Serve the children as Sri Krishna was served by Mother Yashoda. See in them the Lord you revere.
