Longchenpa

You would like to stay with family and loved ones forever, but you are certain to leave them;
You would like to keep your beautiful home forever, but you are certain to leave it behind;
You would like to enjoy happiness, wealth and comfort forever, but you are certain to die;
You would like to study Dharma with your wonderful teacher forever, but you are certain to part;
You would like to be with your good spiritual friends forever, but you are certain to separate.

To my friends who feel deep disillusionment with Samsara
I, the Dharmaless beggar, exhort you:
From today on, put on the armor of effort, for the time has come to cross to the land of great bliss whence there is no separation.
