The Story of Buddha and Clean Water
Buddha was travelling with his followers including his devoted attendant Ananda. As they passed a lake Buddha asked Ananda to fetch him some water.
Ananda walked up to the lake only to see a bullock cart crossing. The passing cart stirred all the dirt in the lake and left the water muddy. Ananda did not want to give Buddha muddy water. He thought: “How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink?”
He returned to Buddha and told him the water was not clean and not fit to drink.
Half an hour later Buddha asked Ananda again: “I am thirsty. Do get me some water from the lake.”
Ananda went back to the lake but the water was still so muddy. So he returned to Buddha and told him the water was still not fit to drink.
After another half an hour Buddha asked once more for some water from the lake.
Ananda went to the lake and found the water was perfectly clear. He collected some of the water in a pot and took it back to Buddha.
When he got back, Buddha looked at the water and then looked at Ananda and said: “See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be and the mud settled down on its own – and you have clear water. Your mind is like that too. When it is disturbed just let it be. Give it a little more time. It will settle down on its own. You don't have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.”
