Factors to consider in caring for one’s spiritual life

Your motivation should be to sacrifice yourself absolutely in order to burn the last desires of this material world, to take care of others and to dedicate yourself 100% to the loving service of the Supreme Lord. You should get to know the scriptures and not get involved in fights. You should be an advisor who knows how to pick up the fallen and you should be an example for others. When you are attacked or criticized you should remain calm . When everything surrounding you turns into chaos, you should remain calm in the inside, because only in the mode of goodness can problems be solved.
