Desire is a terrible foe,
it deludes the Soul through the senses.
So knowing his/her strength and with confidence
in the might of his/her Soul,
seeker should kill this desire-the enemy.
Of course, this enemy is internal
the war to be waged against it is also internal-
of the sphere
of the mind
Attraction and repulsion lie within the senses
One should not be dominated by them
because they are formidable enemies
on the way that leads to good
liberation from action;
they ravish the seeker’s worshipful attitude.
When the enemy is within,
why should one fight an external war?
The enemy is in league with the senses
their objects-within the mind.
