Devotion purifies the mind – Swami Turiyananda

Everyone wants to exhibit his good side and conceal his defects. Whoever can speak out his own faults frankly, will get rid of them. It is not easy to confess one’s weaknesses. If anyone can, know that he has worth in him.

If accidentally the teeth bite the tongue, hurt and cut it, do people take a piece of stone and break the teeth? No because the teeth belong to the same person to whom the tongue belongs. Since the one God who is in me also resides in others. It is improper to find fault with them.

Where there is true devotion, the result is good. Devotion purifies the mind. We must try to see Mother in everything. That will make us spiritual.
