In our society there is an old saying or proverb.
Seperti padi, kian berisi kian merunduk
which roughly means (sorry, my english is not perfect)
Like rice, the more it is ripe the more it duck or hanging low.
I believe or feel it has connection to the teaching of The Buddhas. It seems even correlate with the Vinaya not to talk about individual spiritual achievement.
Am I correct? What will be your comment on it?
