Here's an audio recording of the chant that we are chanting at the end of class:

Aniccaa vata sankhaaraa

uppaada vaya dhammino

Uppajjitvaa nirujjhanti

tesam vuupasamo sukho.

Impermanent are all component things,

They arise and cease, that is their nature:

They come into being and pass away,

Release from them is bliss supreme.

--Mahaa-Parinibbaana Sutta (DN 16)

Here are two talks you people taking the course have recommended:

Guy Armstrong, Impermanence, A Dharma talk given on Oct. 5, 2009

Mark Coleman, What's Up with Change?, March 3, 2004

Wherever I go, I am unafraid;
Wherever I sleep, I am unalarmed.
The nights and days do not burn me.
I see nothing in this world that is to be lost;
Therefore my heart dwells
In goodwill and kindness
To all beings until I fall to sleep
