Vakdevi cannot be easily pleased. One can get her blessings only through hard work. But her blessings will never be taken back. Once She blesses it remains with the living being forever.
Here Vakdevi differs from Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity. The blessing of wealth that is showered by Goddess Lakshmi can be taken away at anytime. But the blessing of knowledge showered by Goddess Vakdevi remains life long.

Overcome fear the moment it appears or it will overpower you – Dada J P Vaswani

You will not be truly happy until your heart is warmed by the spark of love.
To have real fun we must surprise others by being extra loving and kind to them.
The worst amongst us will surely have some virtues. May we see the virtues and not the faults.
Every pleasant or unpleasant experience is for my good, never lose your faith in God. Let your faith in the Lord be absolute.
Overcome fear the moment it appears or it will overpower you.
The secret of harmony is respect the other person and in non essential matters, yield! Dada J P Vaswani
