Reader of the sutras: Ma Prem Maneesha.
The sutra
"Everything arises and passes away."
When you see this, you are above sorrow.
This is the shining way.
"Existence is sorrow."
Understand, and go beyond sorrow.
This is the way of brightness.
"Existence is illusion."
Understand, go beyond.
This is the way of clarity.
You are strong, you are young.
It is time to arise.
So arise!
Lest through irresolution and idleness
You lose the way.
Master your words.
Master your thoughts.
Never allow your body to do harm.
Follow these three roads with purity
And you will find yourself upon the one way,
The way of wisdom.
Sit in the world, sit in the dark.
Sit in meditation, sit in light.
Choose your seat.
Let wisdom grow.
Cut down the forest,
Not the tree.
For out of the forest comes danger.
Cut down the forest.
Fell desire.
And set yourself free.
