Meditation

Though one were to live a hundred years without wisdom and with a mind unstilled by meditation,
the life of a single day is better if one is wise and practises meditation.

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
In the same way that rain breaks into a house with a bad roof,
desire breaks into the mind that has not been practising meditation.

Don’t indulge in careless behavior. Don’t be the friend of sensual pleasures.
He who meditates attentively attains abundant joy.
Verily, from meditation arises wisdom.
Without meditation wisdom wanes.

Knowing this twofold path of gain and loss,
let one so conduct oneself that wisdom may increase.


Gautama Buddha
