Allamaprabhu 1.

Shall I speak of the purity of the word?
Hearing makes it impure.
Shall I speak of the purity of touch?
The skin makes it impure.
Shall I speak of the purity of beauty?
Seeing makes it impure.
Shall I speak of the purity of taste?
The tongue makes it impure.
Shall I speak of the purity of fragrance?
The nose makes it impure.
Shall I speak of the purity of self?
Awareness makes it impure.
The light within light is Guhesvara
Free from the duality of pure and impure.
