Regard the world as an air-flower: unreal.
See the body as though a vision: without basis.
All things change and are not dependable.
Unless we seek the path of purification,
we live in illusion for many lives.
Knowing this, the Buddha came to our world in compassion,
using the Way to teach us how to vanquish suffering,
how to cut off desire, release birth and death,
and enter Nirvana's unchanging abode.
Thao-Duong
