Jarādhammomhi jaraṃ anatīto/a
Vyādhidhammomhi vyādhiṃ anatīto/a
Maraṇadhammomhi maraṇaṃ anatīto/a

Sabbehi me piyehi manāpehi nānābhāvo vinābhāvo/a

Kammassakomhi kammadāyādo kammayoni kammabandhū kammapaṭisaraṇo yaṃ kammaṃ karissāmi kalyāṇaṃ vā pāpakaṃ vā tassa dāyādo bhavissāmī

Evaṃ amhehi abhiṇhaṃ paccavekkhitabbaṃ

I am of the nature to age, I have not gone beyond ageing
I am of the nature to sicken, I have not gone beyond sickness
I am of the nature to die, I have not gone beyond dying
All that is mine, beloved and pleasing, will become otherwise, will become separated from me

I am the owner of my kamma, heir to my kamma, born of my kamma, related to my kamma, abide supported by my kamma. Whatever kamma I shall do, for good or for ill, of that I will be the heir.

Thus we should frequently recollect.
