DISCOURSES & TALKS BY MEHER BABA

 

IMPURE THOUGHTS

 

 

Most of the mandali at this time were young men, and Baba spent two hours that day explaining to them about the enormous increase in sanskaras acquired through immoral acts. Someone asked about nocturnal emissions, and Baba explained that such binding sanskaras were not acquired while dreaming. But even that was the result of impure thoughts during the day, Baba stated. He continued:

 

Hence, bad thoughts should not be entertained. The mind must be kept engaged in service to others done with love and devotion. The spending of sanskaras in this way is beneficial, not by indulging in impure actions. Rain does a lot of good, but it should rain in the right way. Otherwise, untimely showers (like what we had earlier today), instead of bringing about prosperity, cause damage to crops and even to human life through floods.
