# Saying
1 There should not be any trace of dislike or distrust on the score of nationality, language, caste, economic status, scholarship, age or sex.
2 Compassion towards all beings is devotion to God.
3 You are a spark of the Divine; you must manifest the Divinity present within you in every activity of yours.
4 We must control our desires. Don’t waste money, don’t waste time, don’t waste food, and don’t waste energy.
5 Live without hating others, condemning others, and seeking faults in others.
6 Seva brings human beings closer to each other and promotes affection and friendship.
7 GOD gave you the time, space, cause, material, idea, skill, chance and fortune. Why should you feel as if you are the doer?
8 Without firm faith in the omnipresence of the Divine, devotion has no meaning.
9 God is in you, around you, behind you, above you, beside you.
10 Firmly believe that the Lord's Name is the Boat, which will take you over the sea of worldly life. The Name is more efficacious than the contemplation of the Form.
11 Expansion is life. Expansion is love!
12 Winning love through love is a vital aspect of devotion.
13 Practice speaks louder than precept.
14 Reason can prevail only when arguments are advanced without the whipping up of sound.
15 There is no higher God than the mother.
16 Right Conduct and Spiritual Wisdom (Dharma and Jnana) are two special eyes given to you to discover your divinity.
17 Develop firm faith that whatever our mother does for us unselfishly is for our own good.
18 If you want to eliminate your ego, you must consider yourself a 'dasanu-dasa' (a servant of servants).
19 The body is given to you to do karma and realize God. By subjecting body to pain by overdoing fasting, etc., you will not gain anything.
20 You must endeavour to bend the body, mend the senses and end the mind.
21 Your life will be redeemed only when you involve yourself in the service of the society.
22 Fortitude endows you with self-confidence. Self-confidence generates an immense internal power.
23 If you really yearn for God, repeat His name with the same devotion like Prahlada or sing His glory like Radha and Meera.
24 Divine love will enable one
25 By eating flesh one develops violent tendencies and animal diseases.
