The purpose of prayer is to keep ones heart clean

Once while talking with Kumar, Baidul got enraged over something Kumar said and openly expressed his anger. Baba intervened and scolded Baidul, “All your prayers and recitation of God’s name are useless! Your prayer is helpful only if you can keep your heart clean! This is the purpose of prayer….

“You keep awake to do the japa from midnight until 1:00 A.M. and again at 4:00 A.M., hardly sleeping each night for three or four hours. How you wail while praying to God! But all this is of no avail as long as the heart remains unclean. If you keep your heart clean, you will be matchless!, p4463
Sept, 1958; Meherazad


“Mind is a good servant, but a bad master. This means if you control it, it will act as you want.”
