Above all, recognise this truth : Sai is in all. When you hate another, you are hating Sai : when you hate Sai, you are hating yourself. When you inflict pain on another, remember that the other is yourself in another form, with another name. Envy causes pain on those who are envied. When another's fortune is green, why should your eyes be red? Why get wild when another eats his fill? Give up this vice of envy; be happy when another is happy. That is more pleasing to the Lord than the mantras you recite, or all the flowers you keep on His picture or image or even the hours you spend in japan or dhyanam.
