Nurture the body
Anoint this body

Nurture the mind
Anoint the mind with
The divine name


The body is a gift
This breath is gift
This mind is gift
Intellect is a gift

To be cherished
Not perished
To be used
Not abused

Instruments all
To search for the divine within
And aroundUnite as one

It reminds me of the Tirumandiram verse:
Udambinai Munnam Izhukkendrirunden
Udambinukkulle Uruporul Kanden
Udambinil Uthaman Koyil Kondan Endru
Udambinai Yaan Irundombugindrene!
(I earlier thought this body as very demeaning
But I found the truth that exists within the body
When I realised that God has his temple there
I now protect and nurture this body).

Dear Parvati, Adi, Swahilya:
Thank you, Yes indeed! When I could not use my right hand for this past week, when to worship I had to use my left hand I realized this!!

The Tirmandiram verse is beautiful!! Thank you for the translation Swahilya
