Sri Swami Samarth always insisted that dishonest and unscrupulous people are social problem and everybody should get rid of them. Swamiji wanted his devotees to do persistent efforts and also wanted his devotes to stay away from lazy people. Swamiji wants his disciples to toil hard like a bull. If Wamiji sees anyone sitting idle without doing any work and thinking aimlessly, Swamiji used to ask that person whether he doesn’t have a bull in him. Swamiji guided his devotees to work hard and earn their own bread and butter. Swamiji gave teachings of karma yoga (Path of Action) to his disciples.
