My body and the life in it


Are fleeting as the bubbles
In the sea froth of a wave.
Bless me first thus to recall
The death that will destroy me soon;

And help me find sure knowledge
That after I have died
The things I've done, the white or black,
And what these deeds will bring to me,
Follow always close behind,
As certain as my shadow.

Grant me then
Ever to be careful,
To stop the slightest
Wrong of many wrongs we do,
And try to carry out instead
Each and every good
Of the many that we may.

–From Je Tsongkapa, "Source of All My Good"

Universal Education for Compassion and Wisdom
