Cleanliness is being clean on the outside as well as within. With reference to inner purity, let my intentions be pure, let them be as honest as possible. We do so many things formally, whether we mean them or not, like the smile we offer to strangers, or words like ‘Dear friend’ while writing a note or letter. There are many things that we say and do, which we may not even mean. Like saying, ‘I love you’, whether or not we do. The idea is that the thoughts we entertain in the mind are quite different from what we let somebody see. There is a disparity between the two. Therefore, let there be cleanliness or purity. Let my thoughts be true to my word, and let my words be true to my thoughts. Let my intentions be clear, let my intentions be honest and let my intentions be kind. This is purity within.
