It is pertinent to not that by washing the body at the sacred spots, the impurities of the mind and soul cannot be cleansed. If bathing could remove the filth of the mind, the fish which bathes constantly in water would have dispelled its foul smell. Similarly, man may bathe thousand times in ice cold waters and visit the holy places of pilgrimage but he cannot escape from the snares from the Negative Power unless he bathes in the internal pool of Nectar after taking shelter at the feet of a perfect Master.
