Emperor Bali was a supreme example of one who had completely given up ego and attachment. It is not enough to offer worship to Bali or praise him. People must imbibe the qualities which Bali represented. They should develop Bali's spirit of generosity. They should be prepared to offer themselves totally to God as Emperor Bali did. Many people go on reciting the Name of Rama, but how many follow His example either in the matter of obeying their parents' commands or cherishing love for their brothers? A real devotee of Rama should develop Rama's qualities. A devotee of Krishna should follow at least one or two of His precepts.
