One must exercise constant watchfulness over our feelings and reactions, and endeavour to keep out selfishness, envy, anger, greed and other such evil tendencies from entering our minds. These are nets which entrap us; these vices overwhelm and subdue our real nature. Then we forget ourselves and behave like another worse individual, a person caught in frenzy. We blabber as our tongue dictates, without regard to the effect—good or evil, and engage our hands in work that it favours. We must be aware and keep them in control! If we carefully discriminate, we can be recognised by the good company we keep, the noble works we delight in and the pleasant words we utter.
