M.O.B. - May 16th

I've been neglecting my Moment of Beauty posts lately. But the fault is not entirely mine. The 44 degrees Celsius (112 degrees Fahrenheit) temperature in Delhi is not particularly conducive to my roaming the outdoors with nothing but a camera in my hand and a dream in my heart.

As a result, I have decided to adapt my definition of 'Moment of Beauty' somewhat. The M.O.B.s will now include Words and Descriptions.

So, let's hear it for our very first non-visual M.O.B.:

"Grant yourself a moment of peace, and you will understand
how foolishly you have scurried about.

Learn to be silent, and you will notice that
you have talked too much.
Be kind, and you will realize

that your judgment of others was too severe.

Hasten slowly,

and you will soon arrive.

- Chinese proverb
(taken from 'Buddha is as Buddha Does' by Lama Surya Das)
