The Five Remembrances

The Five Remembrances  (All)

 

(These five remembrances help us to identify and look deeply at the seeds of fear.  They can be recited daily, read aloud as a guided meditation, or used as a silent meditation by individual practitioners.)

 

I am of the nature to grow old.

There is no way to escape growing old.

(Bell)

 

I am of the nature to have ill-health.

There is no way to escape having ill-health.

(Bell)

 

I am of the nature to die.

There is no way to escape death.

(Bell)

 

All that is dear to me and everyone I love are of the nature to change.

There is no way to escape being separated from them.

(Bell)

 

I inherit the results of my actions in body, speech, and mind.

My actions are the ground on which I stand.

(Two Bells)
