How to Achieve Peace of Mind?

A real instance from the life of Lord Buddha can be cited as the perfect epitome for getting the knowledge of topic in more deeper aspects. Once Buddha was walking from one town to another with a few of his followers.  While they were travelling they happened to pass a lake. They stopped there. Buddha told one of his disciples “I am thirsty. Get me some water from the lake there”. The disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed that some people were washing clothes in the water. And right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake. As a result, the water became very muddy, very turbid. The disciple thought, “How can I give this muddy water to Buddha” So he came back and told Buddha, “ The water in the lake is very muddy . I do not think  it is fit to drink .” They waited for half an hour  there. Again Buddha asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink . The disciple obediently went back to the lake .This time he found that the lake had absolutely clear water in it . The mud had settled down and  the water above looked fit to drink . So, he collected some water  in a pot and brought it to Buddha. Continue Reading
