In Everyday life Excess of even a Virtue is Bad
A young man was very fond of doing athletic exercises. He used to go very regularly to the gymnasium from seven to eight o1 clock in the morning. In course of time his marriage was fixed, and the auspicious time was determined to be at half - past seven in the morning. On the day of the marriage the groom went to the gymnasium as usual. All preparations for the marriage were completed and he was sent for a number of times; but he would not come. He said, This is the time fixed by me for exercise. I will not come until that is past.' "This is how a virtue may be practised to immoderation in everyday life", is what ShriMaharaj said.
