Act and earn grace. Speak without malice or hatred or envy; speak truth; speak to comfort, to console, to transmit joy. That which does not inflict pain on you and on others - that is right, that is Dharma (righteousness). The aim of Dharma is to help man, stage by stage, towards liberation from grief and from the chain of birth and death.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
