In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true. Buddha
Happiness is not ready made. It comes from your own actions.
The thought manifests as the word; The word manifests as the deed; The deed develops into habit; And habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care, And let it spring from love Born out of concern for all beings
The Four Reliances
- First, rely on the spirit and meaning of the teachings, not on the words;
- Second, rely on the teachings, not on the personality of the teacher;
- Third, rely on real wisdom, not superficial interpretation;
- and Fourth, rely on the essence of your pure Wisdom Mind, not on judgmental perceptions.
Mediate. Live purely. Be quiet. Bo you work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine.
On a long journey of human life, faith is the best of companions; it is the best refreshment on the journey; and it is the greatest property. ~Buddha
Neither fire, nor moisture, nor wind can destroy the blessings of good deeds, and blessings enlighten the world. ~Buddha
