“What does the worshiper do? He cleans the temple. How? By asking all who have been sitting there forever to leave so he can sweep, throw fresh water drawn from the river on the stones, scatter rose petals.
...the temple is empty and resplendent, so that the light shimmers in it, the songs of the birds fill it, fragrances scent it, and moonbeams make it even more spacious, we congratulate ourselves for our wisdom and clear-sightedness, and we say to ourselves, ‘Now this place is absolutely pure. It’s the perfect spot for storing the sublime teachings I’ve had access to. In this temple, I’m going to store the most profound products of wisdom to nourish my consciousness.’”
