Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam -

August 26, 2017


How can we purify the mind? What is the problem this act will fix? Bhagawan reminds
us of the sacred path today.

The six vices of lust, anger, greed, pride,


delusion and envy have enveloped most
people. Attachment and aversion have gripped
them. Due of this most people have forgotten
their real nature and are filled with pride of all
sorts. Losing their power of discrimination
(vichakshana-jnana), people indulge in all kinds
of misbehavior towards others. The scriptures
prescribe devotional worship (upasana) as a
means of getting rid of these bad
qualities. Upasana is the process of elimination
of the accumulated impurities in the mind
resulting from impure thoughts and actions in
the past. As a lighted joss stick removes the bad
odour around by its fragrance, devotional
repetition of the name of God drives away the
impurities of the mind. Remember, all actions
done as an offering to God are pure actions
(sat-karmas). Through such actions, the mind is
purified.

- Divine Discourse, Oct 4, 1989

Never try to control the mind. Follow the intellect, then, the mind will naturally submit
itself.
The master of your mind should be your intellect. Baba
