The Compassion of Nature

Poetry in action, awareness in reaction
Source: The Compassion of Stone

Remote mountains are safe havens for tigers and beasts,

Solitude is a great source of bliss for the meditative and contemplative,

The vast ocean ocean collects water from all rivers,

Nirvana is a consummation of all merits and virtue accumulated through arduous and unerring effort,

Idle charter gives rise to unnecessarily much gossip,

Troubles come from pushing too hard and beyond one’s means,

A face with no anger or remorse is a pure offering,

A mouth that speaks love, joy and bliss is fragrant and eternally fresh,

A heart with joy and realization of Self is a priceless treasure,

A mind that knows purity becomes the seat of supreme enlightenment,

True Nirvana is beyond all time and limits of space.
