Human birth is very difficult to attain. Your body is like a caravanserai; your mind is its watchman and your individual soul (jivi) is the pilgrim. None of these has any kinship with the others. The pilgrim is bound for Salvation City (Moksha-puri). For a trouble-free journey, there is nothing as reliable as repeating the name of God (namasmarana), the remembrance of the name of the Lord. Once the sweetness of that name has been experienced, the person won’t have exhaustion, unrest, or sloth but will fulfil the pilgrimage of spiritual practice joyfully, enthusiastically, and with deep conviction. Still, to achieve this spiritual practice, righteousness (sadbhava) is very important. Without fear of the consequences of an act of sin, righteousness will not originate, and love of God will not develop either. This fear will help righteousness and devotion grow, resulting in true worship of the Lord. (Prema Vahini, Ch 42)
