Text from Bodhicharyavatara by Shantideva:

“TODAY AT LEAST I SHALL NOT DIE, SO RASH TO LULL MYSELF WITH WORDS LIKE THESE. MY DISSOLUTION AND HOUR OF DEATH WILL COME UPON ME INELUCTABLY. SO WHY AM I SO UNAFRAID? FOR WHAT ESCAPE IS THERE FOR ME? DEATH, MY DEATH, WILL CERTAINLY COME AROUND. SO HOW CAN I RELAX IN CARELESS EASE?”
