From Shree Vasant’s Teachings On Discipline

The disciplines are for you. They do not benefit the Divine. They are to benefit you. So ultimately it is each person’s choice to follow disciplined lifestyle or to incorporate the disciplines into their lives. To what degree is totally their decision. No one need be told to follow. No one, therefore, need be judged. Let the atmosphere of a loving, disciplined home speak for itself. Then, if one is more disciplined, one is able to think more clearly, make decisions in a logical manner. However, the disciplines must always be tempered with love and compassion for others. Then the result is quite naturally service. SERVICE IS ITS OWN REWARD. Best way to teach others is to live the life you want to teach.
