What the Buddha taught

In my mind a sad and painful battle was fought
Until I learned what the Buddha taught.
The Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha I hold these things dear,
Within The Triple Gem I have nothing to worry or fear.
No longer do I have a qualm or quarrel;
Instead, I live my life pure and moral.
“Everything is suffering,” the Buddha once said.
So, drive those ill thoughts out of your head.
May all sentient beings have peace and tranquility.
May they have a heart that beats and eyes that see.
So break the cycle of rebirth and clear your mind,
And leave all attachments and suffering behind.
