In every one of your spiritual endeavours, you must make the resolution, "This I MUST achieve; this virtue I SHALL acquire." This is the way to prema and kshama. If you proceed in this manner with unshakeable faith and idealism, then, without any doubt, your life will be fully redeemed. All your actions and feelings must be dripping with kshama, prema, and daya (compassion). Love knows no hatred and is totally free from desires. Thus God is said to be Love personified. Kshama will grow if you have unshakeable faith in God. Once you have learnt to be infinitely patient, Love will walk in almost immediately. Prema combined with kshama is the surest way to fulfillment."
