By constant practice and discipline with meditating, you will foster an aptitude for devotion. The grace waves will then enter you, while the corresponding and actual realization will grow.
But even if you do all this, it will help but little if you cannot reach full mastery. Having pity on you, I now give you this instruction. Listen closely, my young bombayanon
When you remain in solitude, think not of the amusements in the town, else the evil one will rise up in your heart; turn inward your mind, and you will find your way
When you meditate with perseverance and determination, you should think upon the evils of Samsara and the uncertainty of death. Shun the craving for worldly pleasures; courage and patience then will grow in you, and you will find your way.
Beyond all else remember, at all times and places, never be overweening, nor of yourself be proud, else you will be overbearing in your self-esteem and overloaded with hypocrisy. If you abandon deceit and pretense, you will find your way.
The person who has found the way can pass on the gracious teachings to others; thus he aids himself and helps the others, too. To give is then the only thought remaining in his heart.
