Improvidence

['O] procrastinating one, who thinketh not of the coming of death,
Devoting thyself to the useless doings of this life,
Improvident art thou in dissipating thy great opportunity;
Mistaken, indeed, will thy purpose be now if thou returnest empty-handed [from this life]:
Since the Holy Dharma is known to be thy true need,
Wilt thou not devote [thyself] to the Holy Dharma even now?'

Verse 7, 'The Root Verses of the Six Bardos': Tibetan Book of the Dead

This book is quite possibly the most important book I have ever read.... and one that I suggest everyone should read.
