After advising, "It is necessary for a sadhaka leading domestic life to be very careful," ShriMaharaj continued, "In public a sadhaka takes care of practices for attainment of God. That is not very difficult. All people are used to conducting themselves with some degree of restraint when amongst strangers. But a sadhaka's lust and ire boil and spill over at home, particularly in dealing with his wife. Therefore, he whose wife calls him a saintly person, must be a genuinely saintly person."

ShriMaharaj had gone to Mysore. The group accompanying him had one day returned after seeing ore in a gold mine. ShriMaharaj asked, "What did you see ?" Someone said, "We saw ore in a gold mine. There are pieces of stone containing a small speck of gold; only that speck of gold is extracted and the rest of the stone is thrown away." Upon this ShriMaharaj said, "I too do likewise. I accept only the small speck of love for God that is present in the heart of a man coming to me. The rest of him is nothing but trash."
