The Happiness of the Buddha

 

Boatman

Try to be mindful, and let things take
their natural course.
Then your mind will become still
in any surroundings,
like a clear forest pool.
All kinds of wonderful rare animals
will come to drink at the pool,
and you will clearly see
the nature of all things.
You will see many strange and
wonderful things come and go,
but you will be still.
This is the happiness of the Buddha.

– Ajahn Chah

About Kestrel Slocombe

I like writing, meditation, art, reading, riding horses, playing guitar, watching trees in the wind, ferns, the smell of woodsmoke, Mozart and Bach, long walks in the wilderness, and the sound of the cello.
