You have to be clean and tidily dressed, because if it’s not so, it will attract all the baddhas into you. You must keep yourself clean and neat so these baddhas should not enter (1983-0121)

Hair is a natural thing, as is the beard – Christ had a beard, many Saints had beards. But there are entities or spirits around, and if they see any odd thing, a little bit abnormal, they can be attracted, and will jump into you… the same thing applies to any extremes of dress or any kind of dandiness. We can use this knowledge by combing the hair, or dressing etc., in a different way, and in so doing cheating the spirits. For example if we do not have a beard, then growing one may help, by fooling the spirits (1978-0619); I don’t like dishevelled hair… it is a sign of pukka bhoots coming in… the bhoots recognise and get into a person who has dishevelled hair. If you don’t have your hair properly combed and done, then definitely you are in for trouble (1983-0121)
