A devotee is at peace in his natural state.
He speaks truth.
His speech exudes love for all beings.
Seeing no blemish in others,
he looks upon all others as himself.
He serves guru-linga-jangama1
with body, mind and riches.
He does not make an offering to the undeserving.
He is in control of all senses.
This is the way of purifying oneself,
This is the way to offer worship to Linga,
And receive the grace of
1Anything that moves, particularly a wandering minstrel of Shiva.
