Peace of Mind

Value- Peace

Sub Value- Being Calm

Once Buddha was travelling with  a few of his followers. While they were passing by a lake, Buddha requested one of his disciples, “I am thirsty. Do get me some water from the lake.” buddha The disciple walked up to the lake to do Buddha’s bidding. At that  vey moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake. As a result, the water became very muddy and turbid. The disciple thought, “How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink?” So he came back and told Buddha, “The water in there is very muddy. I don’t think it is fit to drink.”

After about half an hour, Buddha asked the disciple to go back to the lake. The disciple went back, and found that the water was still muddy. He returned and informed Buddha about the same. A little later , Buddha  sent the same disciple to the lake again. This time, the disciple found the mud had settled down, and the water was clean and clear. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha.

Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the disciple and asked,” What did you do to make the water clean? When the disciple looked perturbed, Buddha replied, “You let it be, and the mud settled down on its own — and you have clear water”. Your mind is like that too! When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don’t have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.”


Having ‘Peace of Mind’ is not a strenuous job; it is an effortless process! Because…. That is who we really are. We, the Souls are Peaceful Beings.

    I’m impressed, I need to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the problem is something that not sufficient persons are talking intelligently about. I’m very comfortable that I stumbled throughout this in my search for something relating to this. Werner Johson
