Muffle the mind’s plaintive cries 
With silence’s silky shawl
Drown the lies life supplies
In the Divine’s soothing waterfall
Stare deeply into the abyss
Free the body of intricacies subtler
Starve desires until they desist 
Play the merchant ne’er the customer
To weather life’s maelstrom 
Purge thyself in effigy 
Flagellate the ego with thorns
Pyres immolate self-pity
