Five Remembrances

I am of the nature to grow old. I cannot escape growing old.

I am of the nature to develop ill health. I cannot escape having ill health.

I am of the nature to die. I cannot escape death.

Everything I hold dear and everyone I love is of the nature of change. I cannot escape being separated from them.

My actions are my only possessions. I cannot escape the consequences of my actions. They are the ground on which I stand.
