The Buddha’s Fi…

The Buddha’s Five Remembrances – Thich Nhat Hanh’s version
(with thanks to Melissa Pilar for sharing this in the group ‘Zen’ on FB).

I am of the nature to grow old.
There is no way to escape growing old.

I am of the nature to have ill health.
There is no way to escape ill health.

I am of the nature to die.
There is no way to escape death.

All that is dear to me and everyone I love
are the nature to change.
There is no way to escape
being separated from them.

My actions are my only true belongings.
I cannot escape the consequences of my actions.
My actions are the ground upon which I stand.
