This tonic is formulated from 7 medicines:
- Add one measure of the bark of "don't know nothing."
- Add one measure of the heartwood of "the heck with it."
- Add one measure of the root of "that's just how it is."
- Add one measure of the leaves of "without any 'me' or 'mine'."
- Add one measure of the flowers of "nothing worth being or having."
- Add one measure of the fruit of "die before dying."
Equal measures of these six makes a total of six measures together.
- Add the seed of "remainderless quenching" equal to the rest (six measures).
Bless these medicines with 108 repititions of the mantra sabbe dhamma nalam abhinivesaya*.
Place them all in a ceramic boiling pot and cover with water. Boil the liquid down to a third.
Drink three times a day. Don't forget! One teaspoon each time is enough. You'll be cleared of the disease most terrifying for us.
If you aren't cured in a month, continue taking for a year. If you aren't cured after a year, you're crazy and can stop taking it.
* Nothing is worth clinging to.
