Steady practice will ensure you both results - freedom from
sin and liberation. Never underestimate the importance and power of
practice! You would have known examples of how practice makes even an animal
execute difficult tasks – for example, look at the horses yoked to the
carts, elephants on the battlefield! Those elephants have rendered
assistance in battle which even man with the superior equipment of reason
cannot do! Consider how this was made possible for docile elephants living
in forests as herds? Fighting on the battlefield is not their nature. These
are ample proof of the value of practice. Draw strength and confidence in
the value of practice. Practice the withdrawal of the mind from the senses;
it will slowly and steadily develop the skills which will release you from

The character of children must be made strong and pure.
Give them all the confidence and courage they need, to become good,
honest and self-reliant. It is not enough if they learn to make a living
- the manner of living is more important than the standard of living.
Children must also be taught to have reverence towards their religion,
culture and to educational attainments. Children must learn well their
mother tongue, so they can appreciate the great poetical works and epics
written by the seers of their land. These will give them valuable
guidance during the stormy days of their life. Above all, they must
develop a deep reverence for their motherland.
