Practical Exercises

Try to remember in detail an episode or situation where you experienced dissatisfaction (inner or outward) with the fact that the surrounding people (colleagues, friends, neighbours or family members) did not appreciate you enough, did not praise or admire your qualities, achievements, your status or knowledge properly enough.

And now answer the following questions to yourself honestly:

1. What did you expect from others in these situations?
2. How did you react and what were the consequences like?
3. What keeps you from fully assimilating Amanitvam and following it in everyday life?
4. Think of specific actions that could contribute to strengthening this value in your day to day behaviour.
