Chapter-10. SUDDHA MANAS AND ASUDDHA MANAS-6.
6. HOW TO PURIFY THE MIND-1.
As one iron shapes another iron, the pure mind of a person which makes efforts in the virtuous path should correct and mould his impure mind.
Mind is unfailingly rendered pure through true, virtuous and pure actions and constant Satsanga (association with the wise).
Speaking the truth and practice of Daya (pure compassion) are very great purifiers of mind.
All lofty aspirations, all-embracing tendencies and pityall go a long way in increasing the Sattvic material of the mind.
The higher Manas is developed.
Sacrifice, gift, compassion, study of the Vedas and speaking the truth: these five are purifying.
The sixth is penance well-practised.
The last one is highly purifying.
Pilgrimage to sacred places is also purifying.
You come in contact with holy persons there.
You can have good Satsangam.
