Buddha’s quote on kings, silken robes, teachings and meditation

Borobudur @ Menoreh Hill. Asian landscape. Ameckmon. Dcmag.co.ukI consider the positions of kings and rulers as that of dust motes. I observe treasures of gold and gems as so many bricks and pebbles.

I look upon the finest silken robes as tattered rags.
I see myriad worlds of the universe as small seeds of fruit, and the greatest lake in India as a drop of oil on my foot.

I perceive the teachings of the world to be the illusion of magicians. I discern the highest conception of emancipation as a golden brocade in a dream, and view the holy path of the illuminated ones as flowers appearing in one’s eyes.

I see meditation as a pillar of a mountain,
Nirvana as a nightmare of daytime.

I look upon the judgment of right and wrong as the serpentine dance of a dragon, and the rise and fall of beliefs as but traces left by the four seasons.
