Five Contemplations

I know I will age; I cannot escape aging.

I know I will become ill; I cannot escape illness.

I know I will die; I cannot escape death.

In everything I love, there will be change and separation.

I own my acts: actions are my skin.

Regardless of how many I perform,

good or bad, I will own their effects.

— Shakyamuni Buddha, Anguttara Nikaya

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
