Nenju Service – Ino’s End of Week Chant

Nenju Service – Ino’s End of Week Chant

 

When this day has passed, our days of life will be decreased by one.

Like fish in a little water, what sort of comfort or tranquility can there be?

Let us practice diligently and eagerly as though extinguishing a fire upon our heads.

Let us contemplate impermanence and not squander our actions.
