Lest We Forget

205. These five things should often be contemplated by both women and men, by both householder and home leaver. What five?
“(1) Old age can come to me; I have not got beyond old age.
(2) Sickness can come to me: I have not got beyond sickness.
(3) Death can come to me; I have not got beyond death.
(4) I must be separated and parted from all that is dear and beloved to me.
(5) I am the result of my own deeds, the heir to deeds – deeds are the source, the kin and the foundation.
Whatever deed I do, whether good or bad, I shall become heir to that.”

These five things should often be contemplated by both women and men, by both householder and home-leaver.
