The Human Body at Peace with Itself by Tsongkhapa


The human body, at peace with itself,

Is more precious than the rarest gem.

Cherish your body - it is yours this time only.

The human form is won with difficulty,

It is easy to lose.

All worldly things are brief,

Like lightning in the sky;

This life you must know

As the tiny splash of a raindrop;

A thing of beauty that disappears

Even as it comes into being.

Therefore set your goal;

Make use of every day and night

To achieve it.


-Tsongkhapa
