Words:
With posture upright and solid we are seated at the foot of the Bodhi tree
Body, speech, and mind are all one in stillness, there is no more thought of right and wrong
Our minds and bodies dwell in perfect mindfulness
we rediscover our original nature leaving the shore of illusion behind
Noble Sangha diligently bring our minds into meditation
