Circular Buddhist Prayer

by Stephen Ellams

for Nadia

I am dependant arising
Impermanence transfixed
Absent from the deception
of inherent existence
Withdrawal of symptom
Cured of foolish ego
The only thing on my mind
is to find a lasting peace...

Through meditative insight
Be calm abiding
Still transformation
A butterfly rising
Into a sheer sky
of stars never ending
The only thing in my heart
is this message I’m sending...

See yourself as you really are
Then leave the mirror broken
Try to let go
of afflicted emotion
Proffer a daily prayer
for the life you’ve been given
May the only thing on your lips
be these words of wisdom...

I am dependant arising
Impermanence transfixed
Absent from the deception
of inherent existence
Withdrawal of symptom
Cured of foolish ego
The only thing on my mind
is to find a lasting peace...
