In the Monastery

As in the highest peak of mountains,

The prayer filled monastery lies

It is here in our hearts too, an effulgent monastery lies

Like we climb the rocky mountain,

Let’s climb up the rocks of our minds

Climb up the thoughts one by one

As we don’t get attached to the rocks on which we climb however big they are,

So we are able to stay unattached to the thoughts of our mind

Climbing with the goal of reaching the monastery,

Let’s climb within in our hearts and reach the centre

And reach the monastery where everlasting peace resides

Any time, anywhere, we can reach here

No tickets required, not much energy required

Only the desire to look within is needed

Silently with the help of a prayer or a gentle breath,

Let’s climb the mind and reach the heart centre

And dissolve in divinity at this moment

“Gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi swaha….”
