Knots of Life
Staring for a while at a handkerchief,
Buddha started making small knots on it.
He asked his disciples the difference
between the plain one and with knots.
It is the same but not the look of it.
Mind of a person is just like that.
We must know how the knots took place
Then only we know how to untie them.
If the knot is that of infatuation,
to untie that knot be steady in desire
If the knot is that of anger,
to untie the knot be in peace.
If the knot is made of enmity,
to untie the knot be compassionate.
If the knot is that of miserliness,
to untie the knot be generous.
At all times, in pain or pleasure,
to prosper is the only measure.
