The Silent Source
Purify the body, Purify the mind. Purity of body is only the
preliminary to purity of mind. Cleanliness is a part of godliness.
Restriction in diet if adopted helps make the Mind Pure.
Food exercises a Direct Influence on the mind. Purity of food
leads to purity of mind. The Mind is only made up of the fine
essence of food. As the food is, so is the mind. You must be Pure
in thought, word and deed. Your heart must be as Pure as Crystal,
Innocent, Straightforward and Absent of all Evil Thoughts.
He who is endowed with purity will find it easy to tread
the Spiritual Path. Reach perfect Self-Control, Self Mastery,
Control of the Body and Control of the Mind. Lead a
well-Regulated and Disciplined life. Keep all the senses
under Perfect Control. Self-control implies Self-Sacrifice,
Annihilation of Egoism, Patience, Endurance, Forbearance
and Humility. Overcome Attachment and Dispassion.
Overcome Anger and Forgive. Love constantly, Serve selflessly,
Practice goodwill. Overcome evil by good. Return good
for evil. Overcome lust. Practice regular Meditation.
Conquer greed by Charity, Generosity and Disinterested
actions. Conquer Pride by Humility and Delusion by
Discrimination and Enquiry. Overcome Jealousy by
Magnanimity. Conquer Egoism by Self-Sacrifice,
Self-Surrender, Self-Abnegation and Meditation
on the Non-Dual innermost Self.
This you may practice. This you may… become.
