A beautiful example to drive home the lesson of equanimity

"When a well is dug, the earth that is removed from the pit forms a mound by the side. The mud in the mound is the same mud that was in the pit. Praise and calumny are like the mound and the pit, and are essentially of the same origin. Realizing this, the mind should be trained to develop equanimity in terms of man's relationship with and existence in society."

-- Bhagawan Baba (Summer Showers, 1979, pg 157)
