THE FINAL WINNER
When a refreshing feeling comes off
from the bottom of your heart
with all your body relieved of suffering,
who could know the thrilling feeling without experiencing it?
The chain that has been tied to you for kalpas
will break off in no time
unless you stop practicing to the end.
The glorious victory belongs to none other than you.
You can be the true final winner
only when you win the war
not against anyone else but against yourself.
Dear Dharma friends,
let's practice and practice
until there are no sentient beings to save.
