"Seventeenth Spiritual Instruction" by Swami Chidananda

Posted: January 25, 2010 in 20 Impt Spiritual Instructions, self-reliance
Do not Depend on Servants

Do not depend upon servants. Self-reliance is the highest of all virtues.

Self-reliance is the highest of all virtues. Not to depend upon servants does not necessarily mean paid servants. It means do not depend upon others.

A Karma Yogi should never take work from others. He must wash his own clothes, sweep his own room. He must not be ashamed to carry heavy loads. Feel that you are nothing.

Gurudev says do not depend upon anybody, Rely on yourself. Be centred in the Atma only.
