Convinced that your mind is steady and stainless, Lord, I have pinned all my hopes on you. However, my mind is unsteady and full of deceit. You should not abandon me on that account. You are my Mentor-Guru; you can clear the slag of ignorance in my mind like the soap-nut Callagi seeds You can transform me as the wasp metamorphoses the worm You are the Sun that can dispel the darkness. You contribute to the prosperity of men by guiding them through righteous channels. As the alchemist par excellence, only you can transform me as my Mentor.
