SYNOPSIS: When we take all our senses towards GOD they become pure and bring our welfare. The best way to live a good life is to divert all our senses towards GOD and to stay in contiguity of GOD. READ THE FULL ARTICLE BELOW -

Like a pot that keeps Ganga water (Holy water) is always pure, similarly, all things attached to the service of GOD remain pure. Like our hands (remains pure by serving GOD regularly), our eyes (remains pure by having regular visualization of GOD), our mind (remains pure by daily contemplation of GOD), our ears (remains pure by listening to GOD’s pastimes and listening to divine rhymes), our speech (remains pure by praising GOD regularly). This is an eternal principle.

There is no other simpler and easier way to get purified than this. We can only talk about the second option only if one exists. There exists no other option of purification. By no other means our hand, our eyes, our mind, our ears and our speech can get purified.

Now see the compassion of GOD that He had kept this simple and easily available option of purification in reach of all. By five viewpoints, we can see the compassion of GOD.

Firstly, the option of purification is available equally to all, be it a king or a poor or a disabled or a person deformed by leprosy. All can divert their senses towards GOD and seek purification. Race, post, religion and sex is no barrier. Everyone can seek purification equally.

Secondly, this option of purification is available at all times, be it day or night or evening time or morning. Anyone at any time can divert their senses towards GOD and lead it to purification. Whenever we have time we are free to utilize it for the purification of our senses.

Thirdly, this option of purification is available in all situations be it the moment of happiness or be it a moment of grief or pain. Anyone, at any time, in any situation can divert his senses towards GOD for purification. In all circumstances, he is free to do it.

Fourthly, this option of purification is available equally at all places, be it inside the house or outside the house or on a mountain or in the desert. Anyone, at any place, can divert his senses towards GOD for purification. There is no bar of any place that this can only happen in a temple or pilgrimage. We can do so by sitting in a cemetery.

Fifthly, this option of purification is available in all eras, be it Satyug or Tretayug or Dwaparyug or Kaliyug (present era). In all eras, we can divert our senses towards GOD for its purification. For doing so, Satyug is better and Kalyug is not, it is not so. In all eras, the result is the same.

After seeing the five compassions of GOD we must now analyze what is expected from the soul. The creature only has to live in the contiguity of GOD and make all his bodily parts (most important is mind) i.e, all his senses to stay in contiguity of GOD.

The work of eyes is to see. We cannot keep the eyes closed to stop its viewing. If we shut our eyes it will retaliate. It must have the freedom to view. We must make it view GOD. By doing so slowly it will learn the art to see GOD and will develop an attraction for GOD. The eyes will increase its time of viewing GOD and by doing so it will become purified. If this happens the eyes would not like to view other bad things. The lively example to engage the eyes in GOD is that of Shri Gopijan. Shri Gopijan used to view GOD while He went and came back from the forest to feed the cattle. They used to blame the eyelids and the maker of eyelids for it came in between them and GOD for a fraction of a second. Shri Gopijan wanted that the eyes should not have the eyelids or if it had one it should not fall. They got so much inclined to view GOD that their eyelids became an obstacle for them.

Similarly, the ears must be used to listen to GOD’s pastimes and in listening to divine rhymes so that slowly it will recall itself from listening to useless worldly talks. There is a story of King Prathu in ShriMad Bhagawatji Mahapuran who sought 1000 ears from GOD so that he can hear GOD’s pastimes and tales. The king got the fascination to hear GOD’s pastimes more and more and therefore he was not satisfied with his two ears and sought 1000 ears.

If we lead our speech to talk about GOD and to engage it in singing divine rhymes and to pronounce the name of GOD it will become so purified that it will by itself stop speaking false and bitter words. There had been many saints who without speaking about GOD in a discourse (speaking about GOD and thus making their speech purified) did not consume meals. Firstly, they would speak about GOD and then would take the intake of food, this was their daily routine.

Similarly, the hands must be engaged in GOD’s service, the feet must be engaged in visiting temples and pilgrimage and thus they can be purified.

For purification, the only requirement is that without pretense and without show-off we must make a genuine effort to divert all our senses towards GOD. Like the pot holding Ganga water is always pure due to keeping Ganga water (it will not be so by keeping ordinary water) similarly by genuine efforts only, diverting all our senses and our mind towards GOD will make it purified else even if we waste all our life, nothing will happen.

Two things will happen if we draw all our senses towards GOD - we perform noble deeds and will not indulge in evil deeds. For example, if we engage our mind in the contemplation of GOD it will stay away from useless and worldly thoughts.

An eternal principle is that the eyes will not stop viewing. Show the eyes, show it amply but show it the attractive sight of GOD. If we engage the eyes on the extraordinary look of GOD it will not go anywhere to see any other thing.

Therefore, engage all the senses in GOD and then they will not run elsewhere.
