Revere Knowledge as you revere your father, adore Love as you adore your mother, bond fondly with Dharma (righteousness) as if it is your own brother, confide in Daya (compassion) as if it is your dearest friend, have Shantam (calmness) as your better half, and treat Sahana(fortitude) as if it is your own beloved son. These are your genuine kith and kin. Move with them, live with them, do not forsake or neglect them. Living with these kinsmen is the best recipe. That is the best atmosphere to ensure the discipline and detachment needed for mind control. Mere prayer will not do. You will have to swallow and digest the morsel that is put into the mouth; repetition of the name of the dish is of no use. The mother feeds lovingly, but the child must take it in with avidity and relish. When an earthly mother has so much love, who can estimate the love of the Mother of all beings, the Jagatjanani?
