Angulimala Thero – The Transformation

“Stop thee ! Oh saffron princely monk
Who hasten on like falling rain
I want a finger from thy foot
To finish off my bloody chain”

“I do not run, you run instead
Please stop awhile and follow me
Angulimal, I’m not content
To know that thou are not yet free”

“Please throw that bloody chain aside
There is a better, nobler way
To live thy life and reach thy truth
Angulimal, for you today”

And hours went by the Indian time
While Buddha’s sinless way he heard
And sinner changed to blessed saint
And preached he out the hallowed word
