Between an ungrateful person
And an impure person,
O seeker,
Whom do you prefer?
"I prefer an impure person
To an ungrateful person,
For I feel I will be able
To illumine and transform
An impure person,
But I will never be able
To transform
An ungrateful person.
Needless to say, I am saying this
From my personal experience."
