290. The ways and means (measures) of the attainment of freedom from miseries (Duhkha) are service of elderly and respectable persons, keeping away from the company of ignorant people understanding (scriptures); dwelling in solitary places; giving proper thought (and attention) to aphorisms and their interpretations, (Atha) aand by becoming enduring and forbearing (Dhairyarakhna).
291. The austere (Tapasvi) saint, who is desirous of union with self (Samadhi ka Abhilasi) Should think of (Ichchha-kare/wish) only limited and desirable meal; should prefer the company of collegues, who be experts in the sance of essential elements; and should stay in deserted or solitary place or places (vivekayukta/vivikta).
292. Persons, who take good and limited meal, in small quantity never require any treatment by physicians. They are infact their own physicians. They are (always) engaged in their internal-purification.

294. Just as a disease, uprooted or controlled by medicine, does not attack again; similarly the (vicar) of attachment and aversion do not over power the mind of a man (again) whose senses are subjugated (Damiotendriya) who uses a discreted bed and maintains enough distance from women.
295. One should, so far as possible, perform his religious duties (Dharma-Charana) prior/before the arrival of oldage, diseases overpower and the senseorgans become incapable (loose their capacity). Because the religious duties can not be performed done with weak and infirm sense-organs.
