If we look at this stanza, we can catch a glimpse of the optimal state of mental health, which is the goal of every Buddhist.
Imagine ourselves being freed from uncontrollable mental state that is triggered by environment and situation.
A mind that is sorrow freed means no more mental suffering. That is wonderful isn’t it?
from defilements cleansed, from fear liberated
I can only imagine a lightness and purity in being.
Therefore, if we possess all the above qualities, then it is a highest blessings.
