Let us  live  a happy and prosperous  life useful  for ourselves, our family, society, nation and for  the  dharma.  How long we are living is not  important , how we are living is important. Participate in all good activities  for learning, teaching  and practicing  the  values in our life. Always associate with as many  organizations as possible and give all-round  support  for their  good missions. Never think that  only my work, my mission, my pathway, my teacher, my knowledge …..are correct. All good has some bad in it,  and  all bad  has  some good in it. Take good  from everywhere and give good to everyone  as our Vedas tell !
