A Recipe

That you would relish I'm sure
This recipe try it with pleasure

Clean the insight in time sufficient
Wash off anger, enmity and hate

Put the mind on the burning heart
Put in the thoughts all to melt

Ladle in between a large of intellect
Stir in hope a heapful amount

Let all blend with a bliss intent
Until valour and courage result

Throw meantime in the flaming heart
Burnt to ashes filth and lust

Fervid heart now isn't violent
Mind is calm and tranquil incessant

Mix in now gently prayers and spirit
Still more gently the gods to let meditate

Season with peace and harmony pleasant
Garnish with joy and cheer concordant

Serve in the bowl of soul consonant
Enjoy with love consistent

Try and taste this recipe carefully
Tell me 'delicious, delicious' finally
