“The Songs of Milarepa” by Jetsun Milarepa
- Faith is the firm foundation of my house,
- Diligence forms the high walls,
- Meditation makes the huge bricks,
- And Wisdom is the great cornerstone.
- With these four things I build my castle
- And it will last as long as the Truth eternal!
- Your worldly houses are delusions,
- Mere prisons for the demons,
- And so I would abandon and desert them.
