The expression of gratitude through devotion is a primary
obligation. All that is done by way of bhajans, japa, meditation
and prayer must be done in a spirit of gratitude.
The third requisite is discipline. In almost
every action in life, the recognised limits and regulations
have to be observed. This applies equally to the spiritual
field. You must observe discipline in matters relating to
dress, your general behaviour outside the Mandir or during
bhajans in the Mandir, the way you speak and the food you
eat. All your actions should be filled with sanctity and purity.
Discrimination is the fourth
requisite. Discrimination has to be used in every aspect of
daily living? in what you see, what you listen to, what you
speak, and what you consume. Avoid eating all kinds of food
in strange places.
