The moment we hear the name of Ganges, we are reminded of the two banks thereof on which are the many centres of pilgrimage, and on which lie the great places of learning. We visualise the great spiritual centres like Benares, Prayag, Rishikesh and Hardwar. In the same manner, one should also recognise the great pilgrim centres of our minds too. Our own intelligence and Antahkarana (inner instruments or senses) are the great pilgrim centres of our body. It is customary that in the holy places of pilgrimage, sacred tasks are performed; and as a consequence thereof, sacred ideas are generated. In the inner body, alongside the life flow of blood, our mind, our Chitta(heart), our Antahkarana, etc., can all be recognised as places where good thoughts can be generated. If we develop good thoughts we will be able to purify our minds and see good in others and not be judgmental. A pure mind will attract positive energy and love. Purity of mind can be developed by slowly annihilating the inner enemies of ego, pride, jealousy, anger etc. All our spiritual practices should slowly help us achieve this purity of mind.
