Pray to God with your whole heart. Say with great sincerity, ‘Oh Lord, remove my narrowness.’ If you call on him with your whole heart, he will remove all your imperfections. And read the descriptions in the Gita of the glories of God. They can be found in the ninth and tenth chapters; read these two chapters. But if you simply read them, nothing will be gained. You must meditate on them. Then only will you assimilate them.
