Notes

"The notion of 'purity' and 'purification' is one of the commonest and most characteristic ideas in Orphic literature;"[2]

In Orphic literature, purity included "a particular mode of life" (i.e. Right Environment and Right Action, such as not partaking of animal food. Note, according to Adam, in the Orphic mysteries, we strive for the purity of the soul. On the LP we would say the soul is pure enough, being above the disruption, disease, and corruption of blindfolded existence, and that "purification" really refers to the alignment of the Spiritual Ego with Bodily Ego so as to enable strong and pure Connection.
