Contemplation: Don't be Self-Indulgent

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your contemplation:
Today's sun is passing, our life is getting older and today, what joyfulness remains, is like a fish living in a teaspoon of water.  Now everyone endeavor diligently to rescue the burning intellect; be mindful that life is suffering, empty and transient.  Don't be self-indulgent.  Follow the mindful path.

"Kokon," as recited at Tendai Buddhist Institute
