If this illusory body, which I cling to as mine, is sick - let it be sick!
This sickness enables me to exhaust
The bad karma I have accumulated in the past,
And the spiritual deeds I can then perform
help me purify the two kinds of veils.
If I am in good health, I am happy,
Because when my body and mind are well,
I can enhance my spiritual practice
And give real meaning to human existence
By turning my body, speech and mind to virtue.
