Ngulchu Thogme Zangpo, as a suggested practice. Here is today’s verse:
33. Reward and respect cause us to quarrel And make hearing, thinking and meditating decline. For this reason give up attachment to the households of Friends, relations and benefactors -- This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.

Verses From The Dhammapada, The spoken words of the Buddha
170. Look upon the world as a bubble, look upon it as a mirage: the king of death does not see him who thus looks down upon the world. 171. Come, look at this glittering world, like unto a royal chariot; the foolish are immersed in it, but the wise do not touch it. 172. He who formerly was reckless and afterwards became sober, brightens up this world, like the moon when freed from clouds. 173. He whose evil deeds are covered by good deeds, brightens up this world, like the moon when freed from clouds.
