Prologue: Chapter 17
"Who is this"

During the night, as we sleep, negative forces attach themselves to our hands. Like magnets, it is our hands that attract these forces because they carry out negative actions during our waking hours. They manifest the negative thoughts that reside in our hearts and minds. For this reason, one must never recite prayers or blessings without first washing the hands. This section arouses positive, purifying energy, and enables us to use our hands for genuine sharing and other worthy deeds.
