Finally, Swamishri addressed the assembly, saying, "Many times you may feel that as householders you have lots of mundane responsibilities and duties, therefore it is not possible to practice 'niyams', perform arti and puja and attend discourses. But look at Janak and Ambrish who were kings. They had a lot of activities, yet they took out time for prayer and spiritual practices. Dada Khachar, Parvatbhai, Zinabhai and others also took time out and worshipped Bhagwan Swaminarayan. One attains success by effort, faith and trust..."
