Sunset’s Impermanence Verse 日没无常偈

日没无常偈

人间匆匆营众务,不觉年命日夜去。
如灯风中灭难期,忙忙六道无定趣。
未得解脫出苦海,云何安然不惊惧?
各闻强健有力时,自策自励求常住。

净土宗二祖善导大师
《往生礼赞偈》

Sunset’s Impermanence Verse

In this human world hurriedly managing many matters, unconsciously our lifespans by day and night depart. Like a lamp within wind, with extinguishment difficult to anticipate, hurrying towards the six paths without a fixed realm. Yet to attain liberation from suffering’s sea, how can there be peace without panic and fright? Each who hear this, when strong, healthy and with energy, should personally plan and encourage oneself to seek a permanent abode.
