Ghadhada First Section - Vachanamrut 35

Shreejimaharaj says that whoever has a fault in his intellect, in the form of demerit towards God or His Muktas, as well as anyone who listens to the words of such a person, falls from the path of salvation. Whoever has an intellect that is not malignant in this manner, may be of limited intelligence, but he progresses along the path of salvation. Shreejimaharaj clarifies that a person with a malignant intelligence never turns towards God. Shreejimaharaj further states that if one does not harbour the four vices: anger, pride, envy and deceit, his intellect never acquires devilish tendencies.
