Wonder of a Teaching Buddha – Part II

Wakeful deeds she praises, unconscious deeds she blames,

but toward those who act thus,

she is free from any mucks of ‘for’ or ‘against’.

Is any praise high enough for her

whose mind completely transcends

attachment to both the supremely noble

and abhorrence for the ignoble?

The perfect buddha is he who does not cling to virtue,

nor yearn for the considerateness of those who are virtuous.

Ah! See the elusive purity of this subtly peculiar being!

How permanently calm her mind is can be known

by seeing how unalterably calm her speech and corpus [corpus is the collection of works compiled for the purpose of future generations of seekers] are.

Even the less evolved intellectually single-mindedly

acknowledge the purity of her mind.

The goodness that is potent in her words and deeds

reflects her pure thoughts.

So, you just let your thoughts pass like the notes of a song and when you find yourself caught in the stream, be thankful you caught it. And more will come
