Hindu Preachers and Teachers
Earth, sky, worlds above, quarters and their halves; Fire, air, sun, moon, and stars; water, herbs, trees, Space, and entity are the elements. Eye, ear, mind, tongue, and touch; skin, flesh, muscle. Marrow, and skeleton; and the five Vital forces constitute the body. The sage, contemplating these sets of five, Discovered that everything is holy. Man can complete the inner with the outer.
