Today, we present to you an excerpt from the holy text of Tibetan Buddhism titled, "Sixty Songs of Milarepa.” “When the transience of life strikes deeply into one's heart One's thoughts and deeds will naturally accord with Dharma. If repeatedly and continuously one thinks about death, One can easily conquer the demons of laziness. No one knows when death will descend upon him - Just as this woman last night! Rechungpa, do not be harsh, and listen to your Guru! Behold, all manifestations in the outer world Are ephemeral like a dream last night! One feels utterly lost in sadness When one thinks of this passing dream. Rechungpa, have you completely wakened From this great puzzlement? Oh, the more I think of this, The more I aspire to Buddha and the Dharma. The pleasure-yearning human body is an ungrateful creditor. Whatever good you do to it, It always plants the seeds of pain. This human body is a bag of filth and dirt; Never be proud of it, Rechungpa, But listen to my song!"
