Treasure Island

This body is Yours


This body is Yours, my dear,
And I am worshiping You with this body
As the Ganges is worshiped with the water of the Ganges,
As the sun is worshiped with an earthen lamp
I am offering my prayers with the help of Your words
In this body that is entirely Yours.

This entire world is Yours, my dear,
And here I am, with Your help, trying to alleviate
The suffering of all and trying to give them comfort
Equally without any distinction,
I feel happy with the happiness of others
And I am sad with the sadness of others.

It is true, I cannot separate my body from the world
And also I cannot separate the world from the body.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
