The Sound of Silence

The sound of a bell in a temple often brings about a great silence. It can be the call to meditation. Soon the zendo will be filled with people and quiet. In our life, perhaps it may allude to the calm before the storm. With the wisdom we have learned through meditation, we can remain calm during the storm. We can be the sturdy shelter that does not tremble of fall apart in the winds.
