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.
