Mantra

Body impermanent like spring mist;
mind insubstantial like empty sky;
thoughts unestablished like breezes in space.
Think about these three points over and over.

-Adept Godrakpa, "Hermit of Go Cliffs"

James's Comment: This is such a beautiful, peaceful mantra. Reciting it makes me feel as light as a feather. Floating and dancing in the winds of change.

-Peace to us all-
