Agitation never helps!

Sweet is Verbal, Bodily and Mental Silence!

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Kāyamunim vācāmunim,


munim moneyyasampannam.

Āhu ninhātapāpakam.

Silent in body, silent in speech,

silent in mind, without agitation,

blessed with silence is the sage.

Such One is truly washed of evil.
Itivuttaka 3.67

If silent as a broken bell,
such one is close to Nibbana,
and far away from arrogance.
Dhammapada 134

More on this sweetly silenced Tranquillity (Passaddhi):

Have a nice & noble day!

Friendship is the Greatest!
Bhikkhu Samāhita _/\_ ]
