lepers a wash, the effect will be that those of subnormal consciousness and lepers will either get cured or their future births will be greatly minimized.

 

When I ask any one of you to bath a leper, your doing it serves a dual purpose. In the first place, you are trained to tackle difficult and disagreeable work, which ultimately, from the spiritual standpoint, results in the gradual elimination of the ego, and secondly, the habit of obeying my orders implicitly and unquestioningly is developed. For example, if I ask you to observe silence, and if you have had sufficient grounding in the matter of obeying me unquestioningly, no other extraneous considerations will deter you from undertaking the task. Also, as you are near to me and connected with me, your observance of fast and silence or bathing of the leper, etc., will affect the whole range of your work for me.
