Many have died, both young and old.
I am of the same nature.
My body, my affairs, and my enjoyments are ephemeral.
I do not know the circumstances of my death.
If my mind is in a non-virtuous state,
I will experience terrifying suffering.
I will fear my next birth, and will wander
without direction in a mysterious place.
I must take up pure spiritual practice.
To fulfill the aspirations of others and my own happiness,
I will engage in faithful Dharma practice
and sustain it from this moment until death.
