Sidd the Travelin Buddha rests upon a section of decomposing wall while the sun shines upon his shoulders. The once tiny sapplings have grown into adult trees providing shade to the mysterious ruins and in some areas overwhelming the crumbling walls. Where had all the stones come from? What was the purpose of this area, a farm? A missle base with a command center? Time as well as man had eroded most evidence, secrecy covered most clues leaving one to speculate at best. the Dhammapada (Words of Wisdom) warn us to, Be on your guard against mental agitation; be controlled in thoughts. Forsaking evil thoughts, follow the right way in thoughts. As a previous passage from the Dhammapada warn us of the presence of evil, this passage focuses on the danger of mental agitation, cleverly placed words and propaganda, sly words, provoking paranoia and evil tendencies. Be on your guard against actions such as this, be aware of the presence of such things, take steps to avoid if at all possible. Do not place oneself in the presence of such things. If one is pursued by evil and mental agitations, a good way to combat this is to consider the source, recognize the negative elements and ingredients. Control ones emotions and thoughts, for reaction is most often the desired result of such evil and negative perpetrators.
