Lectio Divina 147

Evening Gatha, from Zen Mountain Monastery Liturgy Manual.  Mount Tremper, NY: Dharma Communications, 1998, p.47.

Let me respectfully remind you,
life and death are of supreme importance.
Time swiftly passes by
and opportunity is lost.
Each of us should strive to awaken.
Awaken.  Take heed.
Do not squander your life.
