# Saying
1 Be a servant; a servant of God – then, all strength and joy will be added unto you.
2 God showers His grace on those who make their parents happy.
3 The thought of God, the contemplation of God, and the grace of God - these alone can confer the purity we need.
4 Holding fast to Truth, you must make Righteousness, Peace, Love and Non-violence, the guide posts for your life.
5 When the mind and the intellect unite, one reaches a state of freedom, which is referred to as Moksha (liberation).
6 If you want to enjoy life, fill yourself with good thoughts.
7 Never try to control the mind. Follow the intellect, then, the mind will naturally submit itself. The master of your mind should be your intellect.
8 The one filled with Divine Love will be fearless, spontaneous and selfless in expressing their Love and will seek no reward.
9 Wear the garland of Devotion Gems round your neck and saturate your every thought, word and deed with Divine Love.
10 The person who discriminates well before engaging in any activity will naturally be righteous in conduct and behaviour.
11 Your endeavor must be to bend the body, mend the senses and end the mind.
12 The mind fixed in the awareness of the ONE is like a rock; unaffected by doubt, stable, secure.
13 Dharma (Right Conduct) that is prescribed for human beings is Virtue, Good Conduct and Good habits.
14 Sadhana is essential because the effects of karma have to be removed by karma alone, as the thorn is removable only by another thorn.
15 By constant contemplation on God turn your mind away from mundane desires.
16 When the samskaras (spiritual disciplines) lead to the refinement of the spirit, you experience oneness with the Divine.
17 Ignorance is the most important cause of sorrow.
18 Realising God is the goal and destiny of human life.
19 The service of man is the only means by which you can serve GOD.
20 You may not always oblige, but you can always speak obligingly.
21 Test all your actions, words, thoughts on this touchstone: 'Will this be approved by God? Will this rebound to His renown?'
22 Every good student is an offering that every good teacher makes to the nation.
23 Without steadfast faith, all spiritual practices (sadhana) are empty rites.
24 First and foremost, express gratitude to your parents, love them and respect them.
25 Under any circumstances do not let your speech be tainted by harshness.
