".......One needs to keep watch over one’s thoughts, because they form the basis for one’s actions. When one’s wishes are fulfilled, one is content. When they are not realised disappointment ensues. But no one inquires into the causes for such divergent feelings. Failures are the result of one’s own shortcomings. When the heart is pure, actions will automatically yield beneficial results. Our thoughts are the cause of the success or failure of our efforts. Hence one must utilise thoughts in a proper manner. When one’s thoughts are sublime, the results one achieves are also sublime.........."
"........When defeat and disappointment stare you in the face, you must not give way to weakness or despondency. Never condemn yourself as inferior or useless. Analyse the situation and find out the reasons for defeat so as to avoid it next time. You should have muscles of iron and nerves of steel. Then your resolution will generate the necessary confidence, and that will win over opposition. For the crop of life, courage and confidence are the best fertilizers. Be like lions in the spiritual field, rule over the forest of the senses and roam fearlessly with full faith in achieving victory...."
