Try to preserve all your powers. Respect yourself. You are a lamp that is burning a light, which enlightens others in their mind. It is a very great thing. Even one person like that was born among millions and billions of people and now here we have so many of you. But quality-wise, if you do not rise, it is going to be a hopeless case. So you must improve your quality. All of you must improve your quality, individually. Not criticizing others, not looking at others, but individually you should understand your capacities and how much you have given to others and how much you have really manifested out of what you have got.
