'everything arises and passes away'
when you see this, you are above sorrow.
this is the shining way.
''existence is sorrow'
understand, and go beyond sorrow.
this is the way of brightness.
'existence is illusion.'
understand, go beyond.
this is the way of clarity.
you are strong, you are young.
it is time to arise.
so arise!
lest through irresolution and idleness you lose the way.
