Fame, wealth, eating and
drinking, sleep and sensual delight –
Once you’ve leaned the Five Desires
They become
Your guide in life

Notions of what one should do
Never existed from the start
Fighting about what’s right, what’s wrong
That’s the doing of the “I”

When your study
Of Buddhism is through
You find
You haven’t anything new

  1. Greetings. The three verses of Bankei are very appropriate for and would and do apply to people who are addicted to Samsara. However there are those of us in this and other worlds who are strictly speaking into processing the activity and results of hours of daily meditation.on the Buddha’s 84,000 doors. Thank you. Mathuslagh.
