When we talk about the besmearing properties (lepaimaan
bhaavo) of the mind, speech and body, what exactly are they?
These properties are inanimate (judha bhaavo); they are
mere inclinations and intentions of the prakruti
(characteristic traits of the relative-self). 'Besmearing' means
that it will smear you even if you do not want to become smeared by
them. That is why I say, "I am always
untouched and untainted by all the besmearing intentions of the
mind, speech and body." These besmearing intentions have
tainted the entire world, and yet these intentions are nothing but
an echo. They are inanimate, so you should not pay any attention to
Nevertheless they will not disappear easily; they will harass
and torment you. How will you deal with them? What will you have to
do to stop this force, which arises within you in a split second,
even when you have no desire for it? You will have to start saying
things like, "He (your opponent) or the event which is difficult,
is very beneficial for me." You will have
to say positive things about your opponent. When you start
saying this, the negative feelings will cease. The negative
feelings will lose their impact.
The moment you say, "Looks like the business is running into
loss,' all the besmearing forces within (bhaavs) will immediately
start to daunt you, 'This is going to happen' or 'That is going to
happen.' 'Wait a minute, all I did was just mention something about
the business, why are you all (negative bhaavs) 'barking'
unnecessarily?' And so, you should say, "No, they are beneficial to
me," and those bhaavs will simmer down.
Quotes by Param Pujya Dadashri: Any good thing will be
ruined by talking negatively about it; similarly bad thing will
improve by speaking positive about it.
