Reflections in Water 2
Buddhist Words- Art of Dharma
Mind at Peace
“When the mind is at peace,
the world too is at peace.
Nothing real, nothing absent.
Not holding on to reality,
not getting stuck in the void,
you are neither holy or wise, just
an ordinary fellow who has completed his work.”
(By P’ang Yün-The Enlightened Heart 34)
“Thus shall ye think of this fleeting world:
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud;
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream.”
(-Buddha, Diamond Sutra)
“Without insight, meditation cannot contain the highest state of quietude.
Without meditation, wisdom cannot achieve its profundity of insight.”
