Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche: Ode to Mindfulness

Narrated by: Joseph Goldstein

Mindfulness is the root of dharma.

Mindfulness is the body of practice.

Mindfulness is the fortress of the mind.

Mindfulness is the aid to the wisdom of innate wakefulness.

Lack of mindfulness will allow the negative forces to overcome you.

Without mindfulness, you will be swept away by laziness.

Lack of mindfulness is the creator of evil deeds.

Without Mindfulness and presence of mind, nothing can be accomplished.

Without Mindfulness you are a heartless zombie, a walking corpse

Dear Dharma friends, please be mindful.”

By the aspiration of the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas,

May all Dharma friends attain stable Mindfulness and ascend the throne of perfect Awakening.

Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche
