Well-Being of Body, Speech, and Mind

March 26, 2013

Book coverThere are several analogies for well-being in the scriptures. Well-being of body is like a majestically solid mountain with no mist and no rain. Well-being of speech is like a stringed instrument disengaged from the strings so that it no longer has any desire to communicate with the musician. Well-being of mind is like a great lake with no ripples, no waves, and no wind. Well-being is thus simple, majestic and uninterrupted.

From “Mindfulness of Life,” Chapter Forty in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume One, page 298.
