THE BEST WAY TO PRACTISE RELIGION
( 1 ) Ponder over the elevated and sublime teachings of the Upanishads , Bhagwat Geeta and other religious books like Bible , Al-Quran ; and practise their teachings in daily life .
( 2 ) Be in constant company of saints who are spiritually evolved persons and persons of wisdom and knowledge who can inspire peace and tranquility within you .
( 3 ) Make sincere efforts , at least five times a day , to remove ignorance and sinful ideas from our hearts .
In other words , we should realise ourselves to be above body , mind and intellect and shift our mental abode from the screen of worldly attachments and selfish desires to the flower garden of Reality .
We should live in Divinity and meditate on such Divine thoughts , such as —
" I am the Sun , the effulgent Sun . The particles of dust get colour and brilliance from Me . The source of celestial talk is My word . The spring of Divine Light is My sight . "
HELPFUL STEPS TO ATTAINING THE GOAL OF RELIGION
( 1 ) Take only simple diet and that also in such quantity as may be easily digested .
( 2 ) Have full sleep .
( 3 ) Take physical exercise regularly , both in the morning and in the evening .
( 4 ) Avoid , as far as possible , the company of those persons who may disturb your peace of mind , incite enmity or hatred .
It is good to have the company of spiritually minded people , otherwise , it is better to remain alone .
( 5 ) Follow truthfulness in thoughts , words , and deeds .
Be generous in dealings , charitable in disposition and helpful to others in your daily life .
