Pain and Repentance

May I make of this pain an opportunity to atone and repent for any harm I have caused in the past.

May this physical pain remind me always of the suffering of others so that I am ever quick to come to their succor.

May I reflect on the truth and inevitability of kamma so that I may never cause harm to any being again.

May I make of this body a fleet barque on a voyage to the Deathless.
