Live a life of utter devotion to service. Fill your heart with fervour and enthusiasm for
service. Remember the Almighty Lord every moment.
Mould your character. Behave properly. Develop sympathy, affection, benevolence,
tolerance and humility. Come out of the centre of your small narrow egoistic circle and have a broad
vision. Speak gently and sweetly in a courteous manner. Eradicate undesirable thoughts and
Stick to your ideals, convictions and principles tenaciously, even if the whole world
opposes you. Stand up boldly on your own principles of right conduct and right living. Follow the
instructions of one preceptor. You will attain the Supreme.
