Commendable is the taming
Of mind, which is hard to hold down,
Nimble, alighting wherever it wants.
Mind subdued brings ease.
Hard to hold down,
alighting wherever it likes:
Its taming is good.
The mind well-tamed
Wonderful, indeed, it is to subdue the mind, so difficult to subdue, ever swift, and seizing whatever it desires. A tamed mind brings happiness.
Throw yourself into the task at hand –
Cleaning dirty dishes, caring for a crying child.
With no separation between self and other,
Where is the mind that needs taming?
