 Free from Fear by Release of Anxiety:
 

The young deity Subrahma once asked the Buddha:
Always frightened is this Mind!
Always troubled
is this Mind!
Always agitated is this Mind!
About present problems...
About future problems...
If there is a release from this worry & anxiety,
please then explain it to me
right now!

Whereupon the Blessed Buddha simply declared:
I see no other real safety for any living being,
except from control of the senses,
except from the relinquishment of all,
except from awakening into Enlightenment!
