47. Purify

How can I purify my mind?

I can purify my mind

Only by looking at a flower

And praying to God

To make me as pure as the flower.

How can I purify my mind?

I can purify my mind

Only by looking at the moon

And praying to God

To make my mind as peaceful as the moon.

How can I purify my mind?

I can purify my mind

Only by looking at a candle flame

And praying to God

To make my mind as one-pointed

As the flame.

By looking at a flower,

By looking at the moon

And

By looking at the candle flame

I can purify my mind.

Once purification takes place in the mind,

Slowly and steadily

The body and vital become pure.

Mental purity comes first

For the illumination

Of the entire body-consciousness.
