O Mind! Do not be deluded and taken in by the external charm of women. We are aware of the execrable stuff inside concealed by an external attractive cloak of skin and adornment. By their amorous glances they enslave and delight lewd men, landing them ultimately in misery and distress. Do not be enticed by such deceptive appearances. Redeem yourself by singing the glory of the Lord.
