Absolute Release

Many beings drowning in the great ocean.
Minds are swayed by the perturbing motion.
Invariably, lacking a means of flotation.
Responding to stress with a great commotion.

Except when secluded, “on the cushion.”
Quietness, concentration, is the solution.
This simple vehicle provides a means of locomotion.
Capable of bringing all beings to final fruition.

Even communion with gods will cease.
The Buddha taught the only true peace.
Life, love, possessions, only on lease.
Nibbana, the Unconditioned, the absolute release.

I hope you are having a wonderful day, this Uposatha. Be well, my friends.
