Be sincere at heart. Don’t run after the shadowy toys of name and fame. Name and fame are
illusory. They are mere vibrations in the air. Nobody can earn an everlasting name in this Mayaic
plane. Care not for the little perishable things. Care for the everlasting Reality only.
Do constant selfless service silently with thoughts of God and Bhava within. Never grumble
or murmur when you do service to others. Watch for opportunities to serve. Never miss a single
opportunity. Create opportunities. Create the field for good service. Be regular in Japa, Kirtan,
meditation and study of Gita and Ramayana. Control your emotions. Observe Mouna and
Brahmacharya. Have contact with sages and saints. You will reap the Supreme Joy.
