Now when the bardo of this life is dawning upon me,
I will abandon laziness for which life has no time,
Enter, undistracted, the path of listening and hearing,
reflection and contemplation, and meditation,
Making perceptions and mind the path, and realize the
“three kayas”: the enlightened mind;
Now that l have once attained a human body,
There is no time on the path for the mind to wander.
quoted in the book Glimpse After Glimpse: Daily Reflections on Living and Dying
