Purity is a cherished aspiration of serious spiritualists. When we become pure, we can relish Krishna’s beauty, please him with our service and enter his world of love.

While there are various processes for purification, the most easy and efficacious is bhakti-yoga. Why? Because in bhakti, purity is not an achievement but an endowment. Let’s see how.
Bhakti brings us in contact with the all-pure Absolute Truth, Krishna. Being supremely merciful, Krishna makes himself accessible through his manifestations such as his holy names, Deities and scriptures. By sincerely and seriously fixing our consciousness on such manifestations, we can express our desire for purity. Reciprocating with our desire, Krishna uses his omnipotence to cleanse us, thereby granting us the gift of purity.
