"It does not matter whether you are a woman or a man. It matters not your name or your position in life. The success of the Life Divine depends only upon your ability to gain Wisdom, and use It. Wisdom is gained by in-turning, but to be successful that in-turning must also be turned upwards beyond the ego-self to where the Higher Mind exists. The Higher Mind is attained by merit, by sacrifice, by austerity, by chanting, and by Mantra. In summary, it is attained by the practice in daily life of that which has been learned."
