Awake or Asleep

You may lower your head and raise your arms, or raise your voice and recite the Buddha’s Name. Although your outward actions may differ, always keep the Name in mind. Keep it in mind continuously from one instant to the next, and never forget it, no matter whether you are awake or asleep.
