The Eighteen "Ities" : 6 & 7.


Be truthful.

Stick to your promises.

Do not exaggerate.

Do not twist facts.

Think twice before you speak.

 Speak truthfully.

Speak sweetly.

Be precise in what you say.


Be calm.

Bear insult patiently.

Bear injury, suffering, failures and disrespect calmly.

Do not be elated by praise, pleasure, success and honour.

Look upon both with equal vision.

Behave alike towards friends and foes.

Never let anything disturb your inner peace.

Swami Sivananda
