Develop discrimination and evaluate even your own needs and wishes. Examine each on the touchstone of essentiality. When you pile up things in your apartments, you only promote darkness and dust; so also, do not collect and store too many materials in your mind. Travel light! Have just enough to sustain life and maintain health. The pappu (a lentils dish) must have only enough uppu (salt) to make the dish tasty. Do not spoil the dish by adding too much salt. Similarly, life becomes too difficult to bear if you put into it too much desire. Limit your desires to your capacity and even among them, have only those that will grant lasting joy. Do not run after fashion and public approval and strain your resources beyond repair. Also live in accordance with the code of rules that regulate life or the stage you have reached. (Divine Discourse, Aug 19, 1964)
