Lovely Work

Lovely Work

By Buddhadasa Bhikkhu

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely Work

In fact, this work is lovely:
Before we understand it, we complain,
Unknowing, we avoid it and hide,
Even moan that it is boring.

 

But truly, this work is lovely:
Teaches people to understand every thing,
The more we work, the smarter we are,
Plunging into difficult things the heart grows.

 

This work, if you really, look is lovely:
It pulls in Dhamma most praiseworthy,
That is, mindfulness, zeal, and their mates.
When we stop to rest the mind is free -- the way to Nibbana.
