In this website we wrote an article on Swami Vivekananda's quotes on purity (listed at the bottom of this page). Now we are going to write another article on Swami Vivekananda's quotes on impurity.
  • All these secret societies and humbugs make men and women impure, weak and narrow; and the weak have no will, and can never work.[Source]
  • Darkness is less light; evil is less good; impurity is less purity.[Source]
  • If impurity is the nature of man, then man will have to remain impure, even though he may be pure for five minutes. The time will come when this purity will wash out, pass away, and the old natural impurity will have its sway once more. Therefore, say all our philosophers, good is our nature, perfection is our nature, not imperfection, not impurity — and we should remember that.[Source]
  • If we are pure, we cannot see impurity. It may exist, but not for us.[Source]
  • Impurity is a mere superimposition under which your real nature has become hidden. But the real you is already perfect, already strong.[Source]
  • Man made himself impure by his own actions. But he is to regain his old nature, his pure nature.[Source]
  • "My son," replied the Vyadha, "no duty is ugly, no duty is impure.[Source]

  • Talk not about impurity, but say that we are pure.[Source]
  • The bondage of sin and impurity in the uncultivated savage is to his consciousness very small, for his nature is only a little higher than the animal's.[Source]
  • We see, then, that those who have nearly attained to perfection, in whom only very little of impurity remains, go to the Brahmaloka through the rays of the sun; those who were a middling sort of people, who did some good work here with the idea of going to heaven, go to the heavens in the lunar sphere and there obtain god-bodies; but they have again to become men and so have one more chance to become perfect.[Source]
  • We who are fools cry that we are weak; we who are fools cry that we are impure.[Source]
  • When a man receives a gift from another, his heart becomes impure, he becomes low, he loses his independence, he becomes bound and attached.[Source]
  • When I am washed and clean, why shall impurity be added on to me?[Source]
