The fish though living in water does not get rid itself of its foul smell. Inclinations (vasanas) won’t disappear as long as one’s heart is full of the illusion of egotism, even if one is immersed in many heart-purifying spiritual disciplines. If we really want to get rid of the feeling of “I” and “mine”, one must transform ourselves and worship the Lord (Hari), without any likes and dislikes. Just as light and darkness can never coexist at the same place, love and hatred can’t coexist in the same heart.  Therefore as a spiritual aspirant, we must avoid the cruel arrows of hard words and actions. Instead one must use sweet, pleasant and soft words suffused with truth. One can recognise a true spiritual aspirant through their good qualities.
