Yogi Vemana Quotes

What is the use of following the rituals and customs without inner purity? What is the use of making special dishes in unclean vessels? What use is the worship of Shiva without purity of mind and devotion?

What good is it to bathe in water, to offer treasures and to pay obeisance to gods, when the mind is filled with impurity of hypocrisy.

Bodies are transient, virtue is eternal, all the virtue we perform is alone the thing that cannot be ruined. These brutes of men though they see and hear cannot understand.

That light like the morning star that dwells in the heart of every man is our refuge.

Observance of ritual devoid of purity of heart is worthless.
