Occasionally it is useful to write down ones understanding. Here is one I did a while back. Do you have a practice reminder?

Our Mind Empty

Our Body Formless 

Our Spirit Gone
Chant With Silent Voices The Unheard Dharma

Birth The Truth Before Conception

Enlighten The Enlightened
Surpass The Greatest - The Buddha

Hear What Can Not Be Spoken - The Dharma

Be The True Society - The Sangha
Sacred Warriors Of Buddhism
 Transform Obstacles Empowering All Beings

The Clear Light Shall Shine Away Ignorance
All Is Within

Imperfection Is Perfect

Attainment Is All For Nothing

May Intent Be Pure

May Action Be True

May Knowing Be Increased

All Is Dependent On Us
Vow To Dissolve All Sense Of Self

Vow To Alter All To Awareness

Vow To Change Pain To Bliss
Angered By Temper

Clear About Delusion 

Crave No Desire
Free Of Emptiness
 Free Of Progress
 Free Of Freedom
Impermanence Is Transitory

Suffering And Unsatisfactoriness Are Acceptable

What Is Within Is Without

What Is Without Is Within
Throw Away To Gain

Purest Realization Of Impurity
 Reveal The Unhidden Secret
Ever Aware Of The Present
 One Enters The Eternal Void
 And Ceases To Be

Devoid Of Time
 Devoid Of Place

Devoid Of Size

Nothing Astonishes The Void

    Mine certainly ain't original but I chant them fairly often:

    I take refuge until I am awakened in the Buddhas, the Dharma and the Sangha,
    through the merit I create by engaging in generosity and the other far reaching practices,
    may I attain Buddahood in order to benefit all sentient beings.


    Due to this merit may we soon attain the enlightened state of guru Buddha,
    that we may be able to liberate all sentient beings from their sufferings,
    may the precious bodhi mind not yet born arise and grow,
    may that born have no decline but increase forever more.

  • Buddha gals won't you come out tonight,come out tonight,come out tonight Buddha gals won't you come out tonight and chant by the light of the moon.

    "All conditions are transient." That's it for me, I can't remember more than one thing at a time anyway. :p

    When the crap is about to hit the fan...My practice reminder is this famous quote by the Buddha.....(Well thus have I heard that he said something along these lines :) )
    "Don't worry be happy" works for me :)
