Happy mother's day!!!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Happy Mother's Day!
Whatever an enemy might do to an enemy, or a foe to a foe, the ill-directed mind can do to you even worse.
