You who live in villages are the backbone of the nation. You grow the food and the material for clothing the people. You set the example of industry before the indolent. Your life funs on an even keel, following the regularity of the seasons. You do not hurry ahead of nature as townsmen do. Develop amity and the spirit of mutual help. Villages have been ruined on account of factions. All the profit of hard toil is wasted in litigation, engendered by hatred and greed. The greatest instrument by which success can be assured for all your efforts is devotion to God. That will give health, wealth and prosperity - for it will eliminate hatred, violence and greed.
