The Yogic student should not possess much wealth as it will drag him to worldly temptations. He may keep a small sum to get the wants of the body. Economical independence is of paramount importance to an aspirant; because it will relieve him from anxieties and will enable him to continue his practices uninterruptedly.

Faith can work wonders.
Faith can move mountains.
Faith can take you to the inner chambers of the Lord, where reason dares not enter.

Do actions without idea of agency, without expectation of fruits, without attachment to the actions themselves, balanced in success and failure. You will not be bound by actions.

Refrain from injury to all creatures in thought, word and deed. Be kind and charitable. Free yourself from anger, hatred and malice. Happiness results from good acts. Everything can be attained by righteousness.

Forms of Charity

Charity should be done without seeking any name or fame.
Every good act is charity.
Giving water to relieve the thirst of others is charity.
An encouraging word to one in distress is charity.
Giving medicine to a sick man is charity.
Removing glass pieces from the road is charity.
Serving birds and animals is charity.



Be kind and compassionate. Be pure

and gentle. Be sweet and loving.

Be humble. Be sympathetic. Be friendly

to the poor. Serve them. Be simple

in your life. Give up the idea of

diversity. Have equal vision for all.

A worldly-minded person is a prey to sexual thoughts and thoughts of hatred, anger, and revenge. These two types of thoughts actually take possession of his mind. He is a slave of these two sets of thoughts. He does not know how to divert his mind and fix it on some other good, noble thought. He does not know the laws of thought. He is quite unaware of the nature and subtle workings of the mind
