“It is the pure, undefiled flower that finds a place at the Feet of the Lord and nowhere else. Take great care to spend your life in spotless
purity, worthy to be dedicated in worship to the Lord.” – Anandamayee Ma

“There is no use in merely making a noise if you want to establish the
Deity in the shrine of your heart, if you want to realize God. First of
all purify the mind. In the pure heart God takes His seat. One cannot
bring the holy image into the temple if the droppings of bats are all
around. The eleven bats are our eleven organs: five of action, five
of perception, and the mind.” – Ramakrishna Paramhansa

“I am forever pure. What is illusion, Or the world? What is the little soul, Or God Himself? One without two, I am always the same. I sit in my heart.” – Ashtavakra Gita 20:11-12
