Through the sky blow many different winds, from east and west, from north and south

dust-laden and dustless, cold as well as hot,
fierce gales and gentle breezes--many
winds blow.
In the same way, in this body, sensations arise,

pleasant, unpleasant, and neutral.

When a bhikkhu, practising ardently, does
not neglect his faculty of thorough understanding,
then such a wise person fully comprehends
all sensations.
And having fully comprehended them, within
this very life he becomes freed from all
At his life's end, such a person, being
established in Dhamma and understanding
sensations perfectly, attains the indescribable stage.

Yato-yato sammasati
khandhanam udayabbayam,

labhati piti-pamojjam,
amatam tam vijanatam.

--Dhammapada, XX. 15 (374).

Whenever and whereever one encounters
the arising and passing away of the
mental-physical structure,
one enjoys bliss and delight,
[which lead on to] the deathless stage
experienced by the wise.

--Dhajagga Sutta,

Homage to the liberated, the all conquering,
the fully self-enlightened.

To the Buddhas of the past,
to the Buddhas yet to come,
to the Buddhas of the present
always I pay respect.

To the Dhammas of the past,
to the Dhammas yet to come,
to the Dhammas of the present
always I pay respect.

To the Sanghas of the past,
to the Sanghas yet to come,
to the Sanghas of the present
always I pay respect.

By walking on the path of Dhamma, from
the first step to the final goal,
thus I revere the Buddha,
thus I revere the Dhamma,
thus I revere the Sangha,

Homage to the Buddha:

Such truly is he: free from impurities,
having destroyed all mental defilements,
fully enlightened by his own efforts,
perfect in theory and in practice,
having reached the final goal,
knowing the entire universe,
incomparable trainer of men,
teacher of gods and humans,
the Buddha, the Exalted One.

Homage to the Dhamma

Clearly expounded is the teaching of the
Exalted One,
to be seen for oneself,
giving results here and now,
inviting one to come and see,
leading straight to the goal,
capable of being realized for oneself by
any intelligent person.

Homage to the Sangha:

Those who have practised well
form the order of disciples of the Exalted One.
Those who have practised uprightly
form the order of disciples of the Exalted One.
Those who have practised wisely
form the order of disciples of the Exalted One.
Those who have practised properly
form the order of disciples of the Exalted One.
That is, the four pairs of men,
the eight kinds of individuals,
these form the order of disciples of
the Exalted One;
worthy of offerings, of hospitality,
of gifts, of reverent salutation,
an incomparable field of merit for the world.
