22nd November 2020 38th Convocation Programme of SSSIHL

The convocation in hermitages marked the close of a sweet chapter in life when ideals to be pursued in later years were implanted. The advice given by gurus during convocations was, "Consider mother as God, consider father as God, consider teacher as God, and consider the guest as God." Follow this fourfold exhortation with full faith in its validity, derive bliss therefrom and inspire others by your example, so that the Motherland may progress and prosper. Your parents are sacrificing their comforts and even necessities in order to ensure your progress. It is your duty to revere them and make them happy. First, render your homes bright by pleasing your parents. Do not be arrogant towards your parents because you have studied a few things. Engage yourselves in acts that others will respect and not in acts of which you feel ashamed of. Do not allow your minds to get agitated with limitless desires. Love your native land. Fulfil this desire of mine, with My blessings! - Divine Discourse, Nov 22, 1986
