Hi friends, today I tell you about Buddha’s teachings on how our mind works. It is an old incident. Gautam Buddha was passing through a village with his disciples, and he suddenly felt thirsty.
Buddha told a disciple that we are sitting under the tree and you bring water from the pond. The disciple obeyed his guru and reached the pond and saw that the farmers are bathing their bulls, and some women are washing clothes.
Overall, the water in the pond was filthy. The disciple did not understand how to drink dirty water from his master, and he returned without taking water.
Going back, He said to the Buddha, sir, I am sorry; the water was filthy, so I could not bring it for you. Buddha replied to his disciple that you rest here for a while.
Buddha’s teachings to disciple
After about half an hour, The Buddha told the disciple that you go. Bring water from some pond; I am very thirsty. The pupil returns to the same pond and sees that the dirty water is now clear.
The soil of the pond had sat. The water had cleared. The disciple filled water in the vessel and returned to the Buddha. And said that I could not understand how the water clean.
Buddha’s teachings on how the mind is work –
Buddha said that I was trying to explain to you how the water of such a dirty pond has been cleared over time. Its soil has sat down its bottom. In the same pattern, your mind is working.
When your mind is disturbed, no vital work should be done by you in that state. Over time, your mind will calm down; after that, you should do something significant work or make a decision.
Many times we try a lot and work very hard, just thinking about the result. You want the desired result in any way. But at that time, we do not notice that our mind is unbalanced.
