MINDFULNESS SERIES PART 2 • WORDS

 

The way you speak to others can offer them joy, happiness, self-confidence, hope, trust, and enlightenment. Mindful speaking is a deep practice.

Thich Nhat Hanh

 

One of the most inspiring texts we have ever come across, is an excerpt of Nagarjuna’s String of Precious Jewels.

 

I’ll tell you briefly the fine qualities
Of those on the path of compassion:
Giving, and ethics, patience, and effort,
Concentrating, wisdom, compassion and such.
Giving is giving away what you have,
And ethics is doing good to others.
Patience is giving up feeling of anger,
And effort is joy that increases all good.
Concentration is one-pointed and free of bad thoughts.
And wisdom decides what truth really is.
Compassion is a kind of high intelligence
Mixed deep with a love for all living kind.
Giving brings wealth, a good world comes from ethics.
Patience brings beauty and eminence comes from effort.
Concentration brings peace, and from wisdom comes freedom;
Compassion achieves everything we all wish for.
A person who takes all seven of these
And perfects them together will reach
That place of inconceivable knowledge,
No less than the world’s protector.


We would love it if you share your favourite poem, a quote or a text passage to yoga(at)creativekimiyo.com, and would like to inspire everyone to read their favourite texts out loud sometimes, so that these noble ideas and this noble speech may transpire into every day life.
