# Saying
1 When the mind and the intellect unite, one reaches a state of freedom, which is referred to as Moksha (liberation).
2 Dharma destroys the one who violates it. Dharma also protects the one, who practices it.
3 Through prayer and contemplation on God, you must try to control the evil qualities in you.
4 Thoughts of God, contemplation of God, and grace of God - these alone can confer the purity we need.
5 You must endeavour to bend the body, mend the senses and end the mind.
6 Love, Truth and Compassion are the hallmarks of a true human being.
7 Surrender to the Divine and develop a heart filled with devotion and love, you can face all the challenges of life.
8 Never forget these: 'Trust not the world. Forget not God. Fear not death'
9 It is only when you recognize your own faults that you begin to understand the ways of the Divine.
10 Never feel depressed when you are weighed down by difficulties. God will never impose on you difficulties which you cannot bear.
11 I am with you, in you, above you, behind you, guarding, guiding and protecting you. I know all your thoughts, words and deeds.
12 Good character is built up only by the constant practice of good actions.

17 Contemplating on God with all your heart, chanting His name and surrendering to Him, redeem your lives.
18 Your heart is like a big container, senses are like taps. Fill the heart with the water of Love. Only then you can experience Love through all the senses.
19 Prayer is for the mind, what food is for the body.
20 Culture means giving up one's bad conduct, bad behaviour, bad deeds and cultivating good thinking, fostering good sentiments that lead to good actions
21 To the person who has completely surrendered, every day and every event is a gift from God.
22 When we practice righteousness (Dharma), the Divinity within us will manifest itself spontaneously.
23 Control of the senses and observance of the accepted code of discipline are the hallmarks of a cultured man.
24 Practise the vocabulary of love - unlearn the language of hate and contempt.
25 Depression, doubt, conceit - these are Rahu and Kethu to the spiritual aspirant.
