FORBEARANCE AND UNASSAILABLE MORAL COURAGE
If he runs away from the world, that does not help him. He will again have to come back to the world to develop that quality which would enable him to face and accept the world as it is. Very often his Path lies through the world which he has to serve in spite of not liking its ways.
If the aspirant is to love and serve the world which does not understand him or even is intolerant towards him, he must develop infinite forbearance.
