Always bear in mind that the primary condition of success on the spiritual path is an earnest longing for purity. Therefore, be sincere and very earnest in your spiritual practices and strive for purification and sound ethical culture.
Sing the glories and most powerful Names of the Lord. You will be filled with supreme peace, and devotion will dwell in your purified heart. Evil thoughts are as sinful as evil deeds. The path of virtue lies straight before you. Be sufficiently watchful and exert with faith.
