Here the word modesty is used as an antonym of arrogance or haughtiness. It does not imply meekness or shyness but is a positive virtue of being gentle, kind and non-violent (not rough) in one's behaviour.
  • The technique is the same as above except that the colour is green.
  • Substitute "Centre of Peace." in 4.
    • "My virtue of modesty is becoming stronger."
    • "My arrogance and rashness are diminishing." in 5.

7. Contemplate on the high moral value of this virtue on the following lines:

  • I should behave with gentleness towards people and things.
  • I shall cultivate humbleness towards truth, i.e., 'whatever I say or do is Truth' is arrogance and I should be mentally free from it.
  • I should refrain from being arrogant about my wealth, learning.
  • Thanks-giving to express gratitude and supporting benevolent actions are essential features for a successful carrier.
  • Saying 'sorry' for a lapse and begging pardon to improve behaviour, are means to attain greatness.
  • I will observe all the rules of proper behaviour.
