From Turmoil to Tranquility – Ven Bhikkhu K Ñānananda

True progress leads one from turmoil to tranquility -from din and bustle to calm and serenity. The Ocean gives us an illustration of this truth. Nearer the shallow shore, noisy breakers, froth and foam. Further on are the waves and ripples which gradually subside as the ocean progresses in depth. Far away, towards the horizon it is all calm and serene.

True development of the sense-faculties follows the same principle. The shallow minded revel in the dill and bustle of life, while those who go for deeper things, delight in calm and serenity. It is a systematic progress from turbulence and
conflict to equanimity and peace.
