Today, your house is better than the pilgrim-place

The real pious place is that, which has perfect peace and pleasant nature congenial for concentration provided such place is not visited for fulfillment of any desire

Today in these pilgrim-places desires, businesses and hypocrisy pervaded everywhere

In olden days the places of pilgrim existed on hills and in forests so that many people don’t visit. Such places were congenial with peace and good nature for developing the theoretical devotion. These foolish priests spoiled everything by saying that if one visits such place, their desired fruits are granted. This resulted in crowds visiting these places, spoiling peace and nature. The priests did like this for their personal earnings! The aim of development of theoretical devotion is totally lost. You can develop your devotion in your worship-room present in your house occupied by a few people only. Today, your house is better than the pilgrim-place.

A newly invented lonely place is better than your house. Sages preferred forests for this spiritual aim only. Thank God! The priests then did not say that those forests are pious to fulfill the desires of the public! Had they told so, the forests might have disappeared with full crowds of people! The real pious place is that, which has perfect peace and pleasant nature congenial for concentration provided such place is not visited for fulfillment of any desire. Today in these pilgrim-places desires, businesses and hypocrisy pervaded everywhere. Even a real devotee (Yogi) will not be there, can you expect God (Yogishwara) to be there? Once upon a time these places were really pious and these are not pious today. You may think that at least some good old scent must have remained in these places. Such trace of scent disappeared long back due to the accumulated bad scent of crowds.
