Why do our anarthas increase when we start practicing bhakti? How can we avoid becoming discouraged??

    If suppose you have to clean a room which is closed for many decades so naturally there will be lot of dust everywhere which has got settled down on the floor on the walls, ceiling and everywhere. Now you have just started cleaning the room with a broom so the dust which has got settled since from many years will raise upwards and the whole room will be dusty and it will trouble you till the time you will not clean the entire room and clear each and every particle of the dust…. So similarly practicing Bhakti is like the cleaning process.. the closed room is our heart and the dust is like anarthas.. As soon as you start practicing bhakti you start cleaning your heart which terribly agitates your anarthas and they start raising upwards.. so at this moment we feel that our anarthas are increasing but no.. Actually they are in the process of getting cleaned up.. So when you do Tapasharya that means you are controlling to stay in that room cleaning it constantly and because of that the body burns from inside and destroying the anarthas.. so have faith on the Bhakti process and continue cleaning it…
