Pretty sure it's Arabic but what do they say?

It's either Indonesian or something closely related to it.

I'm surprised I didn't recognise it, given that I've dabbled in Malay before... then again, I did study the Malaysian variant and didn't really spend that much time on it overall. Thanks!

It's not Arabic. It's an attempt at Tibetan "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." I don't know if it's correct, or how legible it is, but that's what they were trying for.

Does anyone recognize the phrase "Dosei Parete"? The context given is "recycling" or "rebirth", but I'm not sure where this would come from.
