The cow of wisdom

Remember the example of an old cow:
She's content to sleep in a barn.
You have to eat, sleep and shit— that's unavoidable.
Anything beyond that is none of your business.
Do what you have to do,
And keep yourself to yourself.
- Patrul Rinpoche (1808-1887), the first reincarnation of great master Shantideva.
