Muñca pure, muñca pacchato,
majjhe muñca, bhavassa pāragū.
na punaṃ jātijaraṃ upehisi.
Let go of the past, let go of the future,
let go of the present, and cross over to the farther shore of existence.
With mind wholly liberated,
you shall come no more to birth and death.
The Dhammapada: The Buddha’s Path of Wisdom, translated from Pāli by Acharya Buddharakkhita
