The Song of Praising the Nature
The Universe contains my spirit, and My spirit contains the Universe. The Universe embraces the law of my spirit, and My spirit embraces the law of the Universe. Thus, My spirit and the Universe are One. A person owns the Universe, I will find all the mysteries of life within Myself. I will reach the strength of the Universe by accepting Its Soul, nergy, and !ivinity, and developing the "enter of the nergy. Thereby, I will be the true owner of your body and spirit. The #ature always remains pure, with no obstruction. $ealth and fame are mere moments of a dream. I collected the Universal spirit on my abdomen, filled Its energy in my head, and !ivine Universe brightened my spirit. After two decades% endless practice, My only wish is to benefit all sentient beings. I will let my great teacher%s lesson &nown all over the world. I will welcome all who wish to learn.
