Previous Poem, A mind attached to anything becomes a sick weak mind Part Five, The human body is a very rare gift of nature Next Poem, The reason why everybody wants to avoid death

The human body is a very rare gift of nature.

It is a raft by which you can cross the Ocean of Samsara.

Respect and adore this human birth, do not waste it.

Take very good care of your body and mind;

don’t put the Diamond in a plastic bag.

Healthy mind and body is important for Freedom

because when the body and mind are sick

the focus goes toward sickness and hospitals.

Sickness and weakness steal too much attention

to allow focus toward That.

The worst pollution to the body is bad thoughts

and the worst thought is “I am the body.”

Your diet is also important, so eat sattvic food.

Simple food cooked with Love and eaten with friends

is tastiest of all, so take good care for your food.
