There is no ornament like virtue
There is no misery like worry
There is no evil like anger
There is no protection like patience
There is no treasure like contentment
There is no friend like generosity
The Staff of Wisdom, Nagarjuna (150-250 CE)
Finding Contentment in this world. The cosy knowing that despite whatever bad stuff you meet out side your door each day, you remain content. Is this not a treasure beyond measure? Why do so many people who seem to have everything remain miserable and unhappy, while some are content with a simple life with few things?
Perhaps they know contentment inside themselves. Meditate on these priceless words of wisdom above. Just these words, taken to heart, are an antidote to so many ills of modern life.
