"It is not what you do that matters, but how you do it – with what attitude and aim. The spiritual effect that a seemingly spiritual activity brings, can also be had by the domestic pursuit, provided you preserve a spiritual attitude and dedication."

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

Purity is the sublimity adorning one’s inner being (antaḥkaraṇa), whereby it becomes free of worldly blemishes and taints like untruthfulness, infidelity, greed and possessiveness. The sole purpose of all religious and spiritual efforts is to make the mind and intelligence pure. Such purity will instantly reflect, nay radiate the glory of the Immortal Spirit within. Otherwise, like muddy water, the mind and intelligence will only remain opaque and spread gloom.
