ideal injunctions are meant for ideal yatra, and the ideal yatri
implements them to make life ideal and yatra successful. Some
exceptions do operate in every injunction to easing rigidity and
make yatra purposeful. Of course, these are for commoners in
particular, who are steeped in materialism, and living amidst
tantalizing mundane objects. For highly beloved soul, if he
properly, and soulfully bathes and dips himself into the water of
self control, he needs no performance of any yatra.
He could wash away all his impurities - mental or spiritual with
mere steadfast faith and single minded devotion for he knows God
does not dwell atop mountains or in well-built temples. He is
Consciousness and Bliss incarnate, and is seen in one's own heart,
where there is proper bhava. Such mental make up is worthy of
craving and attaining till then yatras should go on and yatris must
pass through all the ordeals prescribed by our adorable Maharshis in
their immortal works.
