Mind well or badly guarded – La mente bien o mal protejida


 
Even as rain breaks through an ill-thatched house, passions will break through an ill-guarded mind . . .
Invisible and subtle is the mind, and it flies after fancies wherever it likes; but let the wise man guard well his mind, for a mind well guarded is a source of great joy.

Dhammapada 13, 36

 

…………………………………………………….

Así como la lluvia entra en una casa atravesando el techo de paja mal construído, las pasiones atraviesan una mente mal protejida… Invisible y sutil es la mente, y vuela en persecución de fantasías cuando se la encapricha; que el hombre sabio proteja bien su mente, porque una mente bien protejida es una fuente de gran dicha.

–Dhamapada 13, 36
