 Thierry put in very well that awareness that we create of binding is very essential in the waking moments of every reaction we have and that is meditation as stated by the Vitrag Vignan scientists. Sis Ashaben also talks of connecting with yourself . Who is yourself and what is the mechanism of connection? Following are the diamonds which are given by the Gnani Purush that will help:
Universal Projections for Rich Inner Life
 
1.    Hearty decisions with ardent prayers for inner
transformation and rich inner living
 
Let my mind, speech, body not hurt any living being
 in the world even to slightest extent and
 let my mind, speech, body be used to oblige others.
 (Yog, upayogo paropakaraya.’)

2.    The Essence of all Scriptures as given by
the experienced  self –realized Holistic Scientist
as 9 Diamonds for Divine Code of Conducts. To be read
three times a day to make these wishes and then to keep
internally for implementation in daily life.
 
1st of 9 Nine Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
 as would restrain me from hurting,  causing someone
to hurt or supporting someone hurting  even slightly the
ego of any living being.
May you bless me with such an inner strength in the philosophy
 of relative pluralism (syadvad) in speech, conduct and thinking
as would restrain me from hurting even slightly, the ego of any living being.
 
Explanation-
-Ego means ‘I am’ that is to say ‘I am name bearer’. Ego is very existence
 or life for all human beings. Only two things happen in interactive dealings,
either Ego is boosted or hurt. No one can be happy by hurting anyone’s ego.
Whenever our ego is hurt by our mind, speech or body we would have
 inner disturbance first and in addition there would be reactionary behavior,
 echo or revengeful attitude from one whose ego is hurt. One who would not
hurt anyone’s ego anytime would straight away attain the ultimate blissful state.
So this first code of conduct is of prime significance.
- ‘Syadvad’ means a vision, an all-embracing approach that would take into
 account all different view-points in a situation and would not hurt anyone’s view-point. It enables
 one to know by what angle and to what extent it is correct. It also enables
one to know the ultimate correctness. Everyone is correct by his/her own
view-point and understanding, and there is some truth in each of the view-points.
Only through ‘syadvad’ one can succeed in not hurting any one’s ego or view-point.
In simpler words one asks for inner strength of balanced thinking, speech or act.
 
 
2nd of 9 Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such infinite inner strength so as not to hurt, nor cause
someone to hurt, nor support anyone hurting even to the slightest extent,
the foundation or view-point of any religion or faith.
Bless me with such an infinite inner strength in the philosophy
 of relative pluralism (syadvad) in speech, conduct and thinking
 as would restrain me from hurting any of religious view-points or beliefs.
 
Explanation-
As per Holistic/ Vitrag science, there are several (fourteen lac) layers
of human beings depending on belief planes and inner development.
All have different developments. As there are many classes from K.G .
to College and University degree, so are standards in spiritual
 development too. And according to the standard, the person will get
along with a particular religion or preacher. So all religions are correct
 but not the same!
 
 
3rd of 9 Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
as would restrain me from uttering untrue adverse things,
from offending or showing disregard (disrespect) to any
 preacher, monk, nun or a religious head.
 
Explanation –
In true sense any monk, nun, preacher or religious head
 tries to show some light to mankind. Uttering untrue adverse
 things means to misrepresent or tell which is not there.
 
4th of 9 Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
 as would not make me dislike or hate any living being
to the slightest extent, nor cause anyone nor
support anyone doing so.
 
Explanation-
When we hate or dislike anyone, we see the packing (outer body)
and don’t see the material (pure self) inside. Moreover it
reflects back on our own self. Indifference that is disregard
with a dislike and hatred or contempt are two main faults
one may have towards any living being. One who can get
rid of these two would attain very high state of being.
 
5th of 9  Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength as
would restrain me from speaking, causing someone to
 speak or supporting someone speaking harsh, hurtful
language or language of rivalry to anyone. Give me inner
strength to speak soft, sober, soothing language even if
someone is speaking harsh, hurtful, egoistic or biting language.
 
Explanation-
In present times most of the bondages are due to language
or speech only. Speech is such that it hurts others, pierces
through heart or may lead to rivalry and revengeful attitude.
Words can lead to wars and words can also resolve wars.
One should have a continuous decision and ardent desire
(‘bhavna’) as to how speech can be improved, how it can become
sweet, sober and soothing, making others happy. 
 
6th  of 9  Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
as would restrain me having faults, desires, gestures
or thoughts of sensuality or passion towards any
 gender-male, female or neuter. Give me the supreme
strength so as to be free of sensual or passionate
attitudes or perversions forever.
 
Explanation-
-Here focus is to abstain from carnal deeds or sensual/sexual
misendeavours of all kinds by mind, speech and body both
directly and indirectly. One has human right to get involved
in sensual pleasures with one’s own lawful spouse.
But any thought, act or even a passionate stare towards anyone
 else is a serious fault. Everyone lawfully belongs to someone.
Today it forms a major weakness or a major binding factor, so
 one should be aware of it.
- Sensual pleasures have been considered to be the best in
 the world. But really speaking, the happiness of pure soul
surpasses all the sensual pleasures. Desire for sensual pleasures
 is one of the principal causes of bondage to humans.
 Yet the Vitrag (one who is totally free from attachments (raga)
 and aversions (dewsha) ) do not object when it is in normality
and with your lawful spouse to whom you are married.
To keep ourselves pure, it is utmost necessary to pray daily for
such strength and it is especially pertinent in present time.
 
7th of 9  Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
to control my excessive temptation towards any relish
or taste of food? Give me the strength to take food
having balance of all tastes.
 
Explanation-
It is said that all six tastes are necessary to maintain health.
 (They are bitter, chilly, sour, salty, astringent and sweet)
Imbalance, i.e. excess of one or absence of the other may
affect harmony. So it is advisable to take all the six tastes
in proper proportions.
 
8th of 9 Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
as would restrain me from uttering untrue adverse things,
from offending or showing disregard towards any
 being-living or dead, in one’s presence or absence.
 
Explanation-
Doing any such thing towards anyone is going to affect the self-first.
 
 
 
9th of 9 Priceless Gems/Diamonds for Divine codes of conduct:
O Supreme Self/O Lord!
May you bless me with such an infinite inner strength
for being instrumental in welfare of the world that is
common good of mankind as a whole?
 
Explanation-
Our own welfare is automatically included in our wishing
for the welfare of the world.
 
You have to resolve to act according these Divine codes of conduct
And pray heartily at least three times a day. This will be the planting
of the seeds and hence such behavior would result as fruit or effect.
