Gurudeva encourages him to sit down quietly each day preferably after morning puja or after a temple puja thus internalizing the worship.

Austerity is the fire that straightens the twisted life and mind of an individual, bringing him into pure being, giving a new start in life, awakening higher consciousness and a cosmic relationship with God and the Gods, friends, relatives and casual acquaintances.
