Insight Suffused with Calm

Knowing that the mind's afflictions are overcome
Through penetrating insight suffused with stable calm,
You should first seek the peace of calm abiding,
Which is found in joy and non-attachment for the world.

~ Shantideva, The Way of the Bodhisattva, 8:4
(translated by Adam Pearcey)
