Sample text

He’s the flower to make a household the envy of a rose-garden The garden looks into the home and is put to shame by this flower alone. He alone is the making of comfort and repose From him alone is the abundance of happiness and enjoyment. He stands as the people’s crown of humanity From him alone shines the abode, the image of the glory of man. How can the heart bloom if one lacks vital organs? How much is the heart bloomed, if love for the son doesn’t remain?

There is no [other] happiness like a joyful heart. There’s no wealth in the world better than a son. When assaults fall upon the wounded heart, he alone is the pleasing cure. He alone is the body and soul, he alone the lotus flower, he alone the soma’s essence.
