Vachanamrut 8
Shreejimaharaj states that one's antah-karans are purified by keeping one's Indriyas engaged in the Lord's service or in the service of His disciples. If the Indriyas are engaged in fulfilling the earthly desires, the antah-karans degenerate and one stays from the path of beautitude. If one abides by the rules stipulated in the scriptures and keeps the company of the Ekantik sadhus,he is only attracted to the Lord's Murti. Shreejimaharaj further states that a Mukta believes that his greatness is not due to worldly objects but it is due to his upasana towards the Lord's eternally sakar Murti. He believes that his greatness is due to his understanding that the soul is the lustre of the Lord's Murti, and he does not give up that understanding by anyone's coercion.
