Senryu Tanka #23: The light of impermanence

Impermanence is a central concept in Buddhism and is considered to be one of the Three Marks of Existence along with Suffering and Non-self. It can be a good focus for meditation practice especially when accompanied by the flame of a candle.

“The candle’s pure light
flickering and revealing
my impermanence
as I watch the flame glowing
my Buddha nature unfolds”
