Only Way to Purify the Mind Is To Think Pure Thoughts – Swami Smaranananda

The only way to purify the mind is to think pure thoughts.

If there is a genuine quest, answers can be got from your mind itself.

To aim to be desireless is not dangerous. In this mortal world, all things are fraught with fear; only dispassion and renunciation, leads to fearlessness.

If you can free your mind from desires and negative thoughts, it is possible to solve all problems.

If you get rid of pleasures, the mind would become free from pain. A person who is free from pleasure or pain will be calm and serene under all circumstances.
Get rid of attachment; then you need not fear rejection by anything or anybody.
– Swami Smaranananda
