Thought of the week
Like a shooting star, a mirage, a flame,
An optical illusion, dewdrops, bubbles in water,
A dream, a lightning-flash, and a cloud:
Thus consider all composite things.
SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA (5th century BC)
Buddha Shakyamuni Udanavarga (ched du mjod pa'i mtshoms), a collection of verses taken from the Buddhist canon compiled by Dharmatrata (early fourth century)
