Although I have high status

Although I have high status,
my merit is less than an evil spirit's.
Although I am a great religious teacher,
my passions are grosser than a demon's.
Roar and thunder on the head of the destroyer,
false construction!
Mortally strike at the heart of the butcher,
the enemy, Ego!
