40. PurityCry for purity
The way a child cries for its mother.
Cry and cry,
For there is no other way to invoke purity,
No other way to inundate our earthly existence
Cry and cry.
Inside the soulful cry
This seed will one day grow into a tiny plant,
And then into a banyan tree.
Cry and try, try and cry.
There is no other way
To sow the purity-seed
And to see it grow into
The purity-banyan tree.
Sri Chinmoy, Union and Oneness, Agni Press, 1976
