Radhanath Swami on A Life of Purification

An intelligent person prepares in this life and prepares also for what is beyond this life. When we associate with spiritually minded people, when we associate with people who are searching for spiritual elevation or with people who have realized the spiritual essence within their hearts and in their association when we hear the transcendental knowledge then we are inspired to read the holy scriptures and the sacred commentaries of the great saints. And then we desire a life, not of temporary enjoyment, but a life of purification. The nature of the soul is to seek ecstatic love and joy. Yoga, spirituality, religion – all these are the means by which we can cleanse or purify our hearts.
