The Four Reminders

Joyful to have
Such a human birth,
Difficult to find,
Free and well-favored.

Unalterable
Are the laws of karma;
Cause and effect
Cannot be escaped.

But death is real,
Comes without warning.
This body
Will be a corpse.

Samsara
Is an ocean of suffering,
Unendurable,
Unbearably intense.
