"... Many times before I have told you that you must be very alert and observe the rules of the ashram. The life of the ashram must be guided by alertness and attention. I do not like careless people. It is your duty to bring alertness, promptness, and attentiveness into your lives.
"I want to root out the seed of laziness in the world. Everyone should be hard working. Those of you who are old must come to kirtan. Everyone must take part in the ashram activities according to their capacities. Firstly I give you karma yoga. You can advance only through karma yoga, by karma yoga you may benefit others also. A lazy person cannot do karma and is like a dead person. Give great importance to karma yoga and proceed. When laziness is rooted out from this world, all the world's sorrows and troubles will come to an end. Only hard work can make a person powerful and energetic.
"Karma is of first and foremost importance in your life. Many times I have told you that only through karma yoga will I give you liberation. In this age it is the only type of yoga one can do, it is the only way to realization and progress.
