Adaptability defined
A man of adaptability has to make some sacrifice.
Adaptability develops the spirit of sacrifice.
It kills selfishness. A man of adaptability has to share what he has with others.
He has to bear insult and harsh words. A man of adaptability develops the feeling of unity or oneness of life.
For Vedantic Sadhana it is of great help.
He who practises adaptability has to destroy the feelings of Ghrina (hatred) and contempt and the idea of superiority.
He has to mix with all. He has to embrace all. Adaptability develops universal love and kills the feeling of hatred. A man of adaptability has to put up with the unkind words
and harsh treatment of his friends.
He has to develop patience and endurance.
These virtues develop by themselves unconsciously
when he tries to adapt himself with others. A man of adaptability can live in a cool place.
He can bear the heat of Benares [Benares, India: see Varanasi] or Africa.
He develops balance of mind.
He can bear extreme heat and cold. Adaptability brings eventually Atma-Jnana (self-realization).
He who has this noble virtue is a great man in this world.

He is always happy and successful.
