You have to become lotuses and the lotuses have to throw away all this dead mud, otherwise the fragrance won't be there. That one has to achieve, to throw away all these shackles which are killing you, which are of no use, but a burden. And beautiful lotuses as you are, you have to understand that the whole fashioning has been done so carefully, with such sweetness, with such delicacy. So first of all, we must have respect for ourselves. We must have affection and love for others and we must have respect. That means we must have discipline. We have to have the discipline because, if you respect yourself, you will definitely discipline yourself and you will make it available.
