I took bath repeatedly in the Ganges
And other holy rivers all over.
I drenched myself with bucketfuls
From holy wells in winter.
Thousands of dips I took
In holy ponds at pilgrimage centres,
At Sangham during Magh Mela
And in holy seas on auspicious days.
I got rid of my body’s dirt
And of accumulated vices
To secure my next life,
But where is the river, pond or well
That can make me calmer
And rid me of petty temptations
To help me in my current life ?
