To get joy and peace, you must develop a pure mind

To get joy and peace, you must develop a pure mind, unsullied by egoism and its children – lust, greed, envy, anger, hatred and the rest. This will be easy when you seek satsanga (good company) and perform good deeds, entertain noble thoughts and read inspiring books. More important than all of these is to put into practise, at least one good thought. If you don’t practise, the blemishes in the mirror of your heart will not be wiped off and the Lord cannot be reflected therein. Constant practise with full faith will transmute nara (human) to Narayana (Divinity), for you are in essence Divine. – Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, from: Divine Discourse, Mar 17, 1966.
