Until we realize and accept this fact, we will always be agitated and never find peace of mind. e river that must flow downhill is like our body. It passes through youth, old age and finally dies. Don’t let us go wishing it were otherwise. It’s not something we have the power to remedy. Don’t go against the stream! R Wherever you are, know yourself by being natural and watchful. If doubts arise, let them come and go. When you meet defilements, just see them and overcome them by letting go of them.

An orphan has no refuge and, without a refuge, he is very insecure. 50 Likewise, if the mind is not looked after, if there is no training or maturation of character with right understanding, it’s really troublesome.
