What’s Useful on My Deathbed?

On my deathbed…

mindfulness of doctors isn’t going to help.
mindfulness of loved ones isn’t going to help.
mindfulness of wealth isn’t going to help.
mindfulness of status isn’t going to help.
mindfulness of regrets isn’t going to help.

On my deathbed…

mindfulness of Buddha is the best help.
mindfulness of Buddha is the safest.
mindfulness of Buddha is the best refuge.
mindfulness of Buddha is the kindest for me.
mindfulness of Buddha is the wisest for me.

On my deathbed…

by the practice of single-minded mindfulness of Buddha,
by the power of Buddha’s blessings –
If I can recover, may I recover swiftly.
If I cannot recover, may I be reborn in Pure Land swiftly,
so that I may be liberated swiftly, and return to liberate all swiftly.
