A Buddhist Verse On The Wandering Mind

For those who seek to discipline their minds through meditation or other spiritual disciplines, this Buddhist verse will be pause for contemplation:

where it wished, where whim, where pleasure led.
Wisely this day will I restrain it
as trainer with hook an elephant in rut”

From “Treasury Of Wisdom” Dhammapada
