Let us not stop asking ourselves why we are here,
Let us not pretend to be content without conquering our fears,
Let us not give up our chances,
Let us not foolishly act helpless blaming circumstances

Let us not sleep till we have really awoken,
Let us not give up awareness till the spell is broken,
Let us not deny ourselves peace,
Let us not mistake confinement for release

Let us not mindlessly wander,
Let us not in pointless thoughts ponder,
Let us not confuse believing and understanding for knowing,
Let us not forget that towards death we are growing

Let us not just let it be till we are free,
Let us love ourselves truly not just the teeny tiny petty me.

As he says: “While my work is primarily to produce documentaries, for the past 5 years I have been hosting and producing a monthly program on Buddhism, which has now grown into a weekly show called the Jangchub Shing, The Bodhi Tree. I love and respect all religions, but stand sane and alive because of the Buddha Dharma.” Other LEVEKUNST articles by the same author.
