Cleanliness is next to Godliness

An unclean environment is an insult to the Creator. Everything that God has created is beautiful, and Mother Nature in her power and means to maintain the hygiene and sanitation of the earth. It is only man who makes the environment dirty. For reasons best known to himself, very often, man is happy to keep it that way. 

When you go to a place of religious worship, don’t you bathe first? Don’t you put on your best clothes? Remember, this world is our temple and the first norm we must follow is that of personal hygiene. This involves keeping one's body, clothes, belongings and home clean. This prevents diseases and enhances the quality of life. It also keeps the mind fresh and motivated us to work better. 

Cleanliness must also extend towards the neighbourhood and the environment in general. For this, it is imperative that every person develops clean social and civic habits. It is wrong to spit on the roads, urinate in public or throw litter anywhere one pleases. Doing such things only spoil this wonderful place that has been gifted to us by the Almighty - our planet Earth. 

It is our moral duty to keep ourselves, our homes, our environment, our nation and this earth clean. That is what is meant by the proverb 'Cleanliness is next to Godliness'.
