To be deep and still, like a vast lake

Because he knows Self (enlightened),
the wise one is not disrupted by practical life.
He is deep and still, like a vast lake.
He is not like ordinary people.
His sorrows, illusions and confusion have vanished.

Even doing nothing,
the dull one is forevermore
subtly anxious and distracted.
Even amidst great action,
the wise one remains still,
in inexhaustible Bliss and peace –
ever rejoicing in the fruits of remainderless,
boundless and inconceivable Nirvana.

Even in practical (mundane) life
the wise one remains unconditionally happy.
Happy to sit,
happy to sleep,
happy to move about,
happy to speak,
happy to eat…
