At the Ajanta Caves in India, wall paintings illustrate events in the life of prince Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism.
May all be safe. May all have peace. #buddhism
And he who has considered all the contrasts on this earth, and is no more disturbed by anything whatever in the world, the Peaceful One, freed from rage, from sorrow, and from longing, he has passed beyond birth and decay.
Actively engaging our life as it is at this moment creates the conditions for awakening to a peace and well-being that aren't dependent on whether a particular experience is joyful or sorrowful. This is the promise of peace left to us by the Buddha..
"And You? When will you begin that long journey into yourself." ~Rumi ..*
