Atītaṃ nānusocanti,
nappajappanti nāgataṃ,
paccuppannena yāpenti,
tena vaṇṇo pasīdati.

They do not lament over the past,
they yearn not for what is to come,
they maintain themselves in the present,
thus their complexion is serene.


Saṃyutta Nikāya 1.10

Gemstones of the Good Dhamma,
compiled and translated by Ven. S. Dhammika
