Shloka 11
Who in this world is happy in all respects. Let us think over it. Whatever we have accumulated through our past actions, we have to suffer on that account.

Shloka 12
We should not bleed our mind with sorrow. We should not be engrossed with sadness and worries. We should discover our true self and should understand that our existence is not restricted to our body alone. Our existence is beyond our body and free from all shackles.

Shloka 13
See what happened to Ravana. He lost the whole kingdom all of a sudden. Therefore let us shun evil desires. Let us know that the death will consume us in the course of time.

Shloka 14
All beings of this world take birth and lose life. Even the greatest ones cannot escape from death. Many have born and died.

Shloka 15
If seen properly we can see that everyone on this earth has to die. But still people magnify their ego. People think that they wont die and they will live forever. But all of a sudden everything is gone.

Shloka 16
People feel sad about death of their dear ones. They are themselves heading to death. Greed makes one angry. Greed also pushes one into the cycle of death and rebirth.

Shloka 17
People keep their minds full of sorrows and worries. But the thing, that has to happen, happens suddenly. We should renounce the doership in everything that happens. A person who can not understand feels sad about the happenings.

Shloka 18
We should always long for Lord Rama. We should not magnify our ego. Lord Rama is described by the Vedas and the Puranas. After describing Lord Rama nothing more needs to be described.

Shloka 19
We should never be away from the truth. We should not concieve anything without base. We should speak the truth and shun the baseless.

Shloka 20
If we are trapped in the cycle of death and rebirth then we have to undergo great hardships.

In the 17th century, a very famous Saint, Samartha Ramdas Swami, wrote a small book containing 205 verses.
The name of the book, written in the Marathi language is “Shri Manache Shloka” (श्री मनाचे श्लोक) — which means “A Dialogue With Our Mind.”

Samarth Ramdas Swami teaches us how our mind is our friend, our enemy, and how it can be our Guru. It advises ethical behavior and love for God.
