It brings communication with the transcendent.
It refreshes mind and body.
It removes impurity.
It brings alertness.
It is a companion in solitude.
In the midst of busy affairs, it brings a moment of peace.

When there is little, still one is satisfied.
Age does not change its efficacy.
Used every day, it does no harm.
