40. Purity

Cry 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
    With purity.
Cry and cry.
Inside the soulful cry
    Purity-seed germinates.
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.
