In this Satsang, Ma speaks about how important it is for a seeker to cultivate purity. Why do we need to become pure? When we become completely pure, the mind will become calm and peaceful and the Self will be revealed. The effect of this is that one will always be floating in an inner bliss. We will still face many favourable and unfavourable situations in life but we will face them with steadiness, unaffectedness and poise.

If we truly love noble and pure qualities, we will make an effort to cultivate the qualities. If our love is for purity, we will try to remove the undesirable and impure qualities and strengthen our own good qualities. We will be attentive and alert to find out what are the traits and qualities in us and how they are affecting our thoughts, speech and behaviour.

Good and pure qualities grace the one who has attained the Vishuddha Sattva (pure) state. He experiences placidity or pleasantness of the mind. This is not the placidity we have when everything is going well in life or when some desire or expectation is fulfilled. This placidity graces the mind of the Vishuddha sattva effortlessly, without any external cause; It is spontaneous, effortless and eternal. He remains blissful, being always contented and cheerful. Having wholesome abidance in the Self, he constantly tastes the nectarine bliss of the Self. He will be active and interactive, remaining established in the Self, neither becoming elated nor depressed by situations.

Ma urges seekers to constantly introspect and look into the mind and make a sincere effort for self-purification. One must assess whether the mind is loving purity and is having a yearning to attain it.
