The Essential Scriptures of the Buddha and Patriarchs

Sūtra in Forty-Two Sections

Section 19

The Buddha said, “In contemplating heaven and earth, be mindful of their impermanence. In contemplating the myriad things, be mindful of their impermanence. In contemplating the world, be mindful of its impermanence. Viewing numinous enlightenment is bodhi. By keeping the mind thus, you will quickly attain the way.”
