Thinking as deep as the sea of salt
Another religious references: Lupe talks about the ‘sea of salt’ or the Dead Sea, which is a salt lake east of the West Bank and Israel. No life exists in this body of water because of its high salt content.
There is a prophecy in the bible that states that one day the dead sea will be capable of supporting life.
And Buddhist deep in meditation, elevate their minds such that they become detached from their physical forms or bodies (also their physical temples).
— This is how deep Lupe is thinking.
The somewhat ironic juxtaposition of Christianity and Buddhism throughout the song is continued here.
