      Aspire Fervently, Apply Tenaciously

      Spiritual life is not an idle talk. It is
      actual living in God-consciousness. It is
      a transcendental experience. It is a life
      of fullness and perfection.

      Be rooted in ethics. Be just. Know what is
      right. Keep your promise. Be noble and impartial.
      Be like the ocean in depth of devotion and
      like the Himalayas in firmness. Cultivate peace
      in the garden of your heart by removing the
      weeds of lust, hatred, greed, selfishness and
      jealousy. Know and feel always that you are a
      child of the all-pervading, immortal consciousness,
      the Father in heaven, the Lord in your heart.

      Rely on your own self. Be courageous, candid
      and modest. Respect your superiors. Be ever
      vigilant. Have perfect control over anger and
      lust. Act according to the words of sages and
      saints. Endure suffering patiently. Be patient
      and persevering. Be devoted to the Lord. Purify
      your mind through Japa. Sit in a solitary place
      for sometime daily. Withdraw the senses from the
      external objects. Bring the mind under your
      control. Turn it towards God.
