To bear mistreatment from our enemies is the best form of austerity, but those who hate criticism and are attached to compliments, who take great pains to discover all the faults of others, while failing to keep proper guard over their own mindstream, and who are always irritable and short-tempered, are certain to bring breaches of samaya upon all their associates, so rely constantly on mindfulness, vigilance and conscientiousness.
