Contacts must be maintained with the Sadhus
Speak after thinking
Do not expect admiration and honor due to penance done
Sense gratifications provide momentary pleasures but yield pain for long time
Knowledge-covering karma is annihilated by self-study
Without right perception, knowledge is not acquired and without knowledge right conduct is not possible
Penance is as difficult as walking on the edge of a sword.
Instruments of religion and science must meet together
