1. Be peaceful, sober, and consider the value of life

    There are 8,400,000’s of forms, material body. It is not spoken for them, but nrloke, one who has got this body, material body, as human being, for him it is not good to work so hard like hogs and pigs and asses simply for sense gratification, kastan kaman. Why one should? You should be peaceful. You should be sober. You should think what is the value of life.
