“Friends and relatives acquired for long will separate.~ by Gyalse Tokme Zangpo [The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas]
Possessions gained with exertion will be left behind.
Consciousness, the guest, will leave the guesthouse of the body.
To let go of this life is the practice of a Bodhisattva.”
“The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to renounce this life’s concerns,~ Alternative translation
For friends and relatives, long acquainted, must all go their separate ways;
Wealth and prized possessions, painstakingly acquired, must all be left behind;
And consciousness, the guest who lodges in the body, must in time depart. “
This is this week’s topic for contemplation, reflection and sharing at the online virtual ‘Sit-and-Share’ meditation meeting via Skype from 7:45 pm ready for a prompt start at 8 pm (UK time).
This week’s ‘Sit-and-Share’ host is Vince.
