Where one cannot find spiritual or holy men, a ruler, a river, rich people and a doctor, one should not stop there even for a single day. It means you should stay in such a place where you can find such people.
There are some natural traits of women. Men lack these traits. One should never underestimate a woman by having a look at her delicate and innocent looking face. She is more than that.She deserves respect from men. According to religious books of the Hindus, the capacity of women’s having food is double, shyness is four fold, courage six fold, sexual power is eight fold.
In this world, without trusting others it is difficult to get our things done. We have to believe in someone or the other. We have to be careful while trusting others.
Never trust a river as it can sweep you away, one should also not believe in armed men, animals having horns. And in the same way trusting political leaders may be harmful because some of them are hungry for power and for it they may forward to any extent.

Take elixir out of poison, pick up gold even out of dirty things, if you can get excellent knowledge even from a wicked person, you should acquire it and adopt a gem-girl even if she belongs to the ill natured family.
Such ideas are expressed in Hindu books.
वरयेत कुलजां प्राज्ञो विरुपामपि कन्यकाम्। रूपशीलां न नीचस्थां विवाहः सदृशः कुले।।। -चाणक्य नीति (Chaanakya Neeti)
A wise person who wants to be happy in his married life, should marry a girl from a similar family background with him. Even if a girl is not beautiful, but if she has a very good family background with character, a person should happily marry the girl. A person should not marry a girl with a bad family background even if the girl is beautiful.
This is the instruction to us from the holy books of Vedic Sanaatan Dharma (Hinduism); also mentioned in Chanakya Neeti.
In our life, peace of mind is the most important aspect. Anger is a great obstacle against it. It destroys our enjoyment in life therefore we cannot help controlling it.
When a person continues to think about a material or person, they develop an attachment to it. This attachment leads to desire or wish to acquire that material or person. When their wish is fulfilled, greed gets generated that is the cause of all wrong acts or sins. Every time wishes cannot be fulfilled. When there is an obstacle or disturbance to a person’s desire, anger gets started. Anger then leads to illusion or foolishness or unrationality. Foolishess destroys a person’s memory. After this their intellect gets finished. When the intellect gets destroyed, the person ends his/her existence itself.
For how long we have to live on this earth that we do not know at all. No scientist till the date has been able to know this secret of God. When our life will be cut short, only He knows. Many people falsely think that they will survive on this earth for a long time and that the present time is for them to have physical and material pleasure. Serving others and remembering God can be done in their old age according to them. This false idea will lead them to ignorance or darkness which is the only reason for them to the way to hell. Lord Krishna in the Shrimadbhagawad Geeta, one of the most sacred Holy Books of the Vedic people(Hindus) says that if they remember Him or God at the time of death, they will no doubt attain God’s position or salvation. But it is not so easy to remember Him because for their whole life they have not practised to perform their duty for the sake of others without attachment to any people and material and not remembered or loved God. One should dedicate all good actions to God only then human beings’life will be meaningful.
यो ध्रुवाणि परित्यज्य अध्रुवं परिसेवते। ध्रुवाणि तस्य नश्यन्ति अध्रुवं नष्टमेव हि।। – Chanakya Niti
People want to make a progress in their life but they may not have a look at those things that are at their disposal. They forget their present time and the things available at present, rather they have a day dream which is uncertain and unavailable at this moment. Such people cannot live a good life because presently available resources get missed and unavailable is definitely destroyed because that is still unrealised. Therefore it is far more better to look around you rather than going far away.
At good times, everybody can act before you as your own. You cannot know whether their behaviour towards you is genuine because you are, at that time, in the realm of great illusion. This illusion is removed only when you are surrounded by tough times. The person who is with you at the moment of your serious illness, in disasters, famine; at the time of fear from your enemy, at the door of your king and on the cremation ground, in a true sense, he is your dearest person in the world.
According to Hinduism, our body is just like a coth we wear. Then who puts on this cloth as a body? The great and the most powerful soul which is extremely micro that we cannot even imagine, wears this body just like we wear clothes. When our clothes are torn, we wear other new ones. In the same way, our soul leaves our body to take the possession of another one. This process has been continuing from time immemorial. It will be continued till a person gets enlightenment. That is why death is natural and we should not worry or cry for losing our near and dear ones. When our body becomes very weak or useless, then the soul cannot remain inside it as a result it will accept another body according to its unfulfilled desires.
