Just as minimum qualifications are prescribed for every profession, the minimum qualification for grace is surrender of egoism, control over senses and regulated food and recreation (ahara and vihara). A person is made or marred by the company kept. A bad person who falls into good company is able to shed their evil quickly and shine forth in virtue. A good person falling into evil company is overcome by the subtle influence and slides down into evil. The lesser is overpowered by the greater. A drop of sour curd transforms milk, curdling it, separating the butter and turning it into whey. In a good company or satsang; constantly reading and contemplating on the right actions slowly helps us to be aware of our daily actions which in turn aids in gradual controlling of our senses and reducing our ego earning the abundant grace of the Lord
