Human body is like ashes but in it the tongue is admirable (for its benefits).
The eyes behold forms and colours and the ears take care of the sounds- musical and otherwise.
Nose is the abode of smell and thus all these five couriers (of the body) remain indulged in these pleasures (and become futile).
Among these all, the feet are placed at the lowest level and they repudiating ego are fortunate.
The true Guru by giving treatment removes the malady of ego.
The true disciples of the Guru touch the feet and bow and abide by the instructions of the Guru.
He who becomes humble and dead to all desires is the true disciple.
