Itipiso Bhagava Arahang...

All things are transient
and thus the Enlightened One
journeyed through sansara
lifetime to lifetime
slaying the kleshas
one by one
spoke the word
showed path
was born
attained Enlightenment
and reposed
in the incomparable
parinirvana manchaka
and we resolve
in our impurities
to purify
to reflect
to affirm righteousness
as embedded in word
and example,
trip on our frailties
stray again and again
but return
to a singular avenue
eminently recognizable
by fragrance of text
and the colours of emancipation
striking and soft
in contrasts that blend
to everything and nothing.

  1. This a kind of another Dhamma Sermon but expressed in a poetic manner. Thank you!
