Mara, My Old Friend

What You Need To Know About The Mara Demon From Buddhism

There may be a jewel sewn into my clothes,

I may be basically good,

I may have Buddha nature,

I may already be enlightened,

I may be a Buddha,

But right now,

Despite all of that,

Mara,

My old friend,

Sits before me.
