By purity of heart alone is the holy Eternal attained.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Even as a mirror stained by dust shines brilliantly when it has been cleansed,
So the embodied one, on seeing the nature of the Self, becomes unitary, his end attained, from sorrow freed.
Svetasvatara Upanishad 2.14
For everything there is an appropriate way of polishing; the heart's polishing is the remembrance of God.
Hadith of Tirmidhi
A pure heart is as a mirror; cleanse it with the burnish of love and severance from all save God that the true sun may shine within it and the eternal morning dawn.
Seven Valleys and Four Valleys, 21
Purity of speech, mind, senses and a compassionate heart are needed by one who desires to rise to the divine platform.
Nobody is more dangerous than he who imagines himself pure in heart; for his purity, by definition, is unassailable.
