sacred words….for all….

Preceded by mind

are phenomena,

led by mind,

formed by mind,

If with mind polluted

one speaks or acts,

then pain follows,

as a wheel follows,

the draft ox’s foot………..

Dhammapada, Verse (1)

Preceded by mind

are phenomena,

led by mind,

formed by mind,

If with mind pure,

one speaks or acts,

then ease follows,

as an ever present shadow…

Dhammapada, Verse (2)

Words so relevant in today’s world full of chaos and animosity……being a follower of Buddhist teachings, I am deeply moved by the simplistic truths told by the Buddha….words which he experienced from his awakening….his enlightenment…..words which must be the guiding lights for all mankind in all times, every moment of our lives…

And here’s the verse 1 and 2 from the Holy Dhammapada…..hope you will find the relevance of Buddha’s words in your everyday life and understand the importance of the simplicity in his words……:)

It’s all in our minds…..by the mind, for the mind and in the mind…..every action of ours’ is formulated in the mind which drives us……a polluted confused mind filled with ill feelings drives us towards pain and suffering….and a peaceful, happy, calm, kind and compassionate mind brings everlasting joy to us and all………:)…if we really can follow this simple concept, we take one solid step towards eliminating our own sufferings which is the fundamental concept of Buddhist studies……

May peace be with all……….
