Community on Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda and Spirituality
Do not be offended by trifling matters. Cultivate an amiable loving nature and adaptability.
Admit your faults if they are pointed out by others. Eradicate them and thank the man who points
out your defects; then only can you grow in spirituality and meditation.
Introspect. Look within. Try to remove your defects. This is the real Sadhana. You will have to remove all your weaknesses. Many old vicious habits will have to be cut out. Remove the defects of self-justification and of self-assertive nature.
Be regular in Japa, Kirtan, meditation, study of Gita and Ramayana. Observe Brahmacharya and Mouna. You will enjoy the Supreme.
