The freedom and opportunities we now have are extremely precious.
Being impermanent, everything that is born must die.
The results of our virtuous and harmful actions are inevitable.
The three realms we experience as patterned existence are an ocean of suffering.
Remembering this, may my mind turn towards the Great Way



            May All Beings Be Released From This Ocean of Suffering!
