If your mind is agitated, afflictions are stirring up.Tranquility in the Buddhist context is achieved due to wisdom’s capacity to subdue afflictions. No outside changes can sway the mind. Massive power is hidden in such quietness.
Humans are like this, easily swayed by conditions. It might be easy to remain calm and get along with the world wisely when one’s energy is sufficient. Otherwise, one world be tipped over easily and a tiny undertaking could be feared as a heavy burden.
This must be the performance of an untrained mind. To practice the Dharma is to guide our mind to tranquility for a longer time, with more joy, and with more power. The basic way is to keep on practicing regularly. For example, read sutras or chant the names of Buddha every day, without interruption. This helps our mind to settle down.
