Even if we acquire
Wealth in the outer world
True prosperity
Cannot be obtained.

Even if we achieve
Expansion in the outer world
True development
Cannot be created.

Truth is not born
Without unifying
The inner world and
The outer world.
Nothing is certain
Without abundance of Kuh (mind)
Overflowing to create Shiki (reality).

Within the cathedrals of the material world
That continue to multiply
We must regain the core
That is the soul.
