     ::: Gathas for the Practice of Mindful Living



31
Inviting the Bell to Sound (Version 1)
Body, speech, and mind held in perfect oneness,
I send my heart along with the sound of the bell.
May the hearers awaken from forgetfulness
and transcend all anxiety and sorrow.


32
Inviting the Bell (Version 2)
May the sound of this bell penetrate deeply 
into the cosmos.
In even the darkest spots, may living beings 
hear it clearly,
so their suffering will cease,
understanding arise in their hearts,
and they can transcend the path of anxiety 
and sorrow.
Namo Shakyamunaye Buddhaya.


33
Inviting the Bell (Version 3)
May the sound of this bell penetrate deeply 
into the cosmos
so that beings, even those in dark places, 
may hear it and be free from birth and death.
May all beings realize awakening and find 
their way home.
Namo Shakyamunaye Buddhaya.


34
Listening to the Bell (Version 1)
Listen, listen,
this wonderful sound 
brings me back 
to my true home.


35
Listening to the Bell (Version 2)
Listening to the bell, I feel my afflictions 
begin to dissolve.
My mind is calm, my body relaxed,
a smile is born on my lips.
Following the bell's sound,
my breathing guides me back 
to the safe island of mindfulness.
In the garden of my heart, 
the flower of peace blooms beautifully.
Namo Shakyamunaye Buddhaya.


36
Listening to the Bell (Version 3)
Hearing the bell, 
I am able to let go of all my afflictions.
My heart is calm, my sorrows ended.
I am no longer bound to anything.
I learn to listen to my suffering
and the suffering of the other person.
When understanding is born in me,
compassion is also born.


37
Morning Meditation
The Dharmakaya is bringing morning light.
Sitting still, my heart at peace, I smile.
This is a new day.
I vow to go through it with awareness.
The sun of wisdom will soon be shining everywhere.
Sisters and brothers, diligently bring your mind 
into meditation. 
Namo Shakyamunaye Buddhaya (three times).


38
Evening Meditation
At the foot of the Bodhi tree,
I keep my back straight and my posture stable
. Body, speech, and mind are calmed.
There is no longer any thought of right 
and wrong.
Mindfulness is shining on the five skandhas. 
The original face will be found,
and the shore of illusion will be left behind.
Sisters and brothers, diligently bring your mind
into meditation.
Namo Shakyamunaye Buddhaya (three times).


39
Impermanence
The day is ending and our life is one day shorter.
Let us look carefully at what we have done.
Let us practice diligently, putting our whole heart into the path of meditation.
Let us live deeply each moment and in freedom, 
so the time doesn't slip away meaninglessly.
