Peace is Within

ajjhattamevupasame, na aññato bhikkhu santimeseyya.
ajjhattaṃ upasantassa, natthi attā kuto nirattā vā.

Internally should one be pacified, from naught else should a bhikkhu seek peace.
For one internally pacified there is no self, whence aught apart from self?

-- The Buddha (Sn. 925)
