On making your mind clam and radiant

FullSizeRender (4)

THE BUDDHA‬ was once asked this question: Why do the noble‬ beings who have developed their minds appear so calm and radiant? The Buddha replied:

“They ‪sorrow‬ not for what is past‬,
They yearn not after that which is not come,
The present‬ is sufficient for them:
Hence it is they appear so radiant.
By having longing for the future‬,
By sorrowing over what is past,
By this fools are withered up
As a cut-down tender reed.”
