The husband of a middle - aged lady died suddenly. She began neglecting herself and her children from grief. When she met ShriMaharaj, he said to her, "Madam, I have full understanding of your grief. With all that, I say, you should act with due discrimination. Discrimination is a great faculty accorded to man. It is present in everyone. If man acts making due use of it, he will belong to God. Grief is bound to be present in domestic life, and, without discrimination, its severity will not be reduced. To keep the faculty of discrimination active, one should either make God one's witness, or chant his nama uninterruptedly. Be absorbed in nama, and your sorrow will be lightened."
