      The Purpose of Practice

      "The purpose of all our spiritual practices is to
      slowly make the mind thinner and thinner and thinner.
      In order for the mind to get thinner, we should
      understand why it gets thickened. The mind is thickened
      by the thoughts, by the desires. The more thoughts
      in the mind, means the bigger and thicker the mind.
      When the thoughts and desires are reduced little by
      little, then the mind becomes thinner and thinner.
      And in a thoughtless condition, the mind is almost nil.
      Think of a piece of cloth. Because the threads are
      arranged in a particular way, you call it cloth.
      If you slowly pull off the threads, what happens to
      the cloth? It vanishes. So, this is how meditation
      and other Yoga practices help us to transcend the mind.

      "God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."

        The best way to clean your system is to use sound. Simply choose any holy name you like, and keep repeating it. Let your body vibrate with that frequency. In the beginning you have to concentrate on that vibration within you. But, as you continue, every cell in your body will begin to repeat your mantram or your prayer; then the whole system, the whole personality, body, mind, everything will vibrate on that wavelength. The holy word is like a radio wave.


        When a mantram is given to you, you tune your personality to a particular frequency. It's just like tuning a radio. The cosmic music that comes from God is always being transmitted. God never stops transmitting all the beautiful things. Some simply don't tune their heart radios to the proper frequency. Instead, they tune it to the wrong frequency and get atmospheric disturbance.


        With practice, you'll be able to tune your heart radio. You will become a good receiver. Only then is the proper communication possible. Communication brings communion. Real communion is possible only when you tune your entire personality to God's frequency.


        Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi
