II.33 When being harrassed by negative thoughts, cultivate the opposite.

34 Negative thoughts are violence, may be performed or caused to be done, and can be triggered by greed, anger, or delusion. They may be slight, moderate, or cause intense, never ending suffering. Cultivate the opposite.


35 In the presence of someone established in ahimsa (non-violence) one gives up hostility.

36 Upon the establishment of satya (truthfulness), the fruits of all actions are supported.

37 Upon the establishment of asteya (non-stealing), all jewels manifest.

38 Upon the establishment of brahmacharya (sexual restraint), one gains power.

39 From consistent non-attachment comes understanding of the cycle of births.

40 From saucha (cleanliness), one develops a distaste for one's own body and for contact with others.

41 From purification comes the sattvic mind, which is cheerful, one-pointed, self-controlled, and fit to perceive the self.

42 From contentment, one achieves the highest happiness.

43 From self discipline, one removes impurities, perfecting the body and senses.

44 From self-study, one establishes a connection to the divine.

45 Ultimate samadhi comes from surrender to God.
