Sadguru burns up the sanskaras

I say, therefore: Will [control] your mind; lead a pure, clean, and virtuous life; remove low desires; follow One who has realized God; and then you are saved. “Following” in this sense does not mean giving up your own creed or religion. The mind is to be renounced!

If you try to set green grass on fire, it will not burn. But if you set a match to a haystack, it will immediately catch fire and burn to ash. The haystack symbolizes the accumulation of sanskaras. In order for green grass to dry, it has to be kept near a fire. This means that in order to destroy one’s sanskaras, a person should stay with a Sadguru in whom the divine knowledge is always burning. In his contact and company, sanskaras accumulate but also dry. Finally, with the flame of his grace, he sets fire to and uproots all one’s sanskaras. Even red sanskaras of lust and anger, which are the fastest growing and most deeply rooted, are nothing to worry about if you have contact with a Sadguru.
