"Sometimes while washing the coal, no matter how much you wash, the black just keeps coming out. Of course, someone gave an analogy that even coal, if you put tremendous pressure upon it, it turns into a diamond; that if one is always in the fire of devotional service, even the coal can become diamond. So we should be very careful to place ourselves in that fire, to cleanse our hearts completely, and always clings to the lotus feet of Nitai-Gaura."
