(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 6 July 2021, Goloka Dhama, Germany, Srimad Bhagavatam 6.1.18)
Purification is a realistic element of life. A lot people nowadays go into some therapy with an idea that they can overcome something within themselves. In the Vedic culture, purification is essential in life. It says that everyone needs to purify themselves. In principle, it is understood that every living being has a higher and lower nature. The higher nature is elevating us. It is bringing out noble qualities and it is bringing us to a point of being free from causing suffering to others. Acting for the upliftment of others, and thereby, uplifting ourselves. So we can see that everyone has these two sides within them. Therefore, there is a need for purification of the previous things that we have done due to our lower nature. And there is the need of purifying ourselves completely from the tendency to act according to our lower nature.
