In what is seen there must be only the seen; in what is heard there must
by only the heard; in what is sensed (as smell, taste or touch) there must be
only what is sensed; in what is thought there must be only what is thought.
The Dharma taught by all Buddhas
Is well founded in the two truths:
The conventional truth of the world,
And the supreme ultimate truth.
Do not hark back to things that passed,
And for the future cherish not fond hopes:
The past was left behind by thee,
The future state has not yet come.
But who with vision clear can see
The present which is here and now,
Such wise one should aspire to win
What never can be lost nor shaken.
