Verses for Today

One of the things that I’d like to accomplish this year is to memorize my refuges, precepts and aspirations that I chant in the morning. For some time I have used my phone as a prayer book of sorts but this has any number of disadvantages.

I’m able to make it through the Tisarana, Pali precepts and the Pali paramis but I get hung up on the Eight Verses for Training the Mind. So, each day I will take a verse until I have made my way through the whole book. It takes about fifteen minutes to recite at full speed so we’ll see how long it takea. Today we have the following:

5. Whenever someone out of envy
Does me wrong by attacking or belittling me,
I will take defeat upon myself,and
And give the victory to others.
