To make our soul shine, our surroundings are important.
If the place that we live in is a mess and dirty, even our feelings will be jumbled and confused.
Since our feelings are easily infused by our surroundings, also from the sense of bracing our spirits, we must always be mindful of keeping things tidy and in order and cleaning.
In the same way as faith and practice, cleaning polishes our soul and that is why it elevates our strength for action for the path of happiness for human life. When our place is purified, through the presence of the Buddhas and deities, their protective powers are intensified. In that sense, cleaning is important and cleaning our place becomes essential.
