On Sanskaras – Not just stopped but need to be rooted-out

Mustaches ought not merely to be shaved and cut as we do time after time, but actually stripped off once and for all, since shaving and cutting only makes the hair grow back again with all the more vigor and force, whereas rooting out the hair would stop and check its growth immediately and permanently. In the same way, sanskaras need not only to be cut off and stopped in their growth, as is done by yogis, but eradicated—rooted out, wiped off altogether, in such manner as not to be created again. And this is what Sadgurus do.
