Peace of Mind

(Adapted from a Buddhist Tale)
 
Buddha, with followers
passing  by lake said
“I am thirsty,
Get me some water.”
 
As disciple walked
spied a bullock cart
crossing through lake
turning water turbid.
 
Returning to the Buddha,
disciple narrated plight.
After a while,
Buddha bade him to go.
 
Finding the water
still grimy,
disciple returned
disheartened, disturbed.
 
More time elapsed.
Buddha gave go ahead.
This time water clear
Disciple returned with filled pot.
 
Buddha remarked- Mind is similar,
When disturbed, let it be.
let it settle down-peace of mind
effortless task
