SB 1.9 - Mokṣa dharma and Bhagavad-dharma

Mokṣa dharma entails conquering lust, anger, desires, avarice and bewilderment. To be free from anger, one should learn how to forgive. To be free from unlawful desires, one should not make plans. By spiritual culture one can conquer sleep. By tolerance one can conquer avarice. Disease can be avoided by regulated diets. By self control one can be free from false hopes, and money can be saved by avoiding undesirable association. By practice of yoga one can control hunger, and worldliness can be avoided by culturing the knowledge of impermanence. False arguments can be avoided by factual ascertainment, talkativeness by gravity and silence, and fearfulness by prowess. Perfect knowledge can be obtained by self cultivation.

Women are considered as a power of inspiration for men. Shyness is important for women.

The simple process for pleasing the Lord is to install the Deity of the Lord at home. By concentrating on the Deity, one may progressively go on with the daily routine work. Worshiping the deity, serving the Deity, hearing Bhāgavatam, residing in a holy place and chanting the holy name are all inexpensive items by which one can please the Lord.
