RE: Rigpa Glimpse of the Day
Remember the example of an old cow:
She’s content to sleep in a barn.
You have to eat, sleep and shit―
Beyond that is none of your business.
Do what you have to do
And keep yourself to yourself.
and London, 1972.)
If this elephant of mind is bound on all sides by the cord of mindfulness,
All fear disappears and complete happiness comes.
All enemies: all the tigers, lions, elephants, bears, serpents (of our emotions);
And all the keepers of hell; the demons and the horrors,
All of these are bound by the mastery of your mind,
And by the taming of that one mind, all are subdued,
Because from the mind are derived all fears and immeasurable sorrows.
