Courage...


“Courage is not the towering oak that
sees storms come and go; 
it is the fragile blossom that opens
in the snow.”

The Four Vows of a Bodhisattva


Sentient beings are numberless; we vow to liberate them.
Delusions are inexhaustible; we vow to transcend them.
Dharma teachings are boundless; we vow to master them.
The Wisdom Way of Enlightenment is supreme:
 we vow to embody it.

Harmony and Freedom...


“Hidden in the mystery of consciousness, the mind, incorporeal, flies alone far away. Those who set their mind on harmony become free from the bonds of death.”
Buddha

Greatest blessing...


“A mind unshaken when touched by the worldly states, sorrowless, stainless, and secure, this is the supreme blessing. Those who have fulfilled all these are everywhere invincible; they find well-being everywhere, theirs is the supreme blessing ”

Mangala Sutta

Never give up...


“Never give up. No matter what is going on. Never give up. Develop the heart. Too much energy in your country is spent developing the mind instead of the heart. Be compassionate not just to your friends but to everyone. Be compassionate. Work for peace in your heart and in the world. Work for peace and I say again never give up. No matter what is happening, No matter what is going on around you. Never give up.”

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

The meeting Point


The bats dwell in the cave,
The eagle is happiest in the sky
And the two cannot meet
The bee flies to the flowers
The flies fly to the shit
And the two cannot meet
The sun shines by day
The moons glows at night
And the two cannot meet
Fill the space of joy in your
Heart and there….we will

Always meet!

Apache blessing...


May the sun bring you new energy by day.
May the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away your worries.
May the breeze blow new strength into your being.
May you walk gently through the world 
and know it's beauty all the days of your life.

Prajnaparamita


“"Shariputta, does it occur to any of my followers to think that after they have known full enlightenment they should lead all beings to nirvana?" "No, Honored One." "But that should be their intention. They should not be too caught up with themselves to believe that. A glowworm or firefly does not think that its light could illuminate the continent of India or even radiate over it. In the same way, the followers do not think that they can, after obtaining full enlightenment, lead all beings to nirvana. But the sun, when it has risen, radiates its light over the whole of India. Just so, an awakened follower when he is fully enlightened, without even consciously attempting to, leads all beings to nirvana."”

Real power?


“The real power behind whatever success I have now was something I found within myself—something that’s in all of us, I think, a little piece of God just waiting to be discovered.”

NEPAL


Our hearts go out to all those that are now engaged in prayers for their lost loved ones, as well as the courageous people of Nepal, lay or monastic who are rallying to the call and those supporting the relief and reconstruction efforts. At times the teaching of impermanence can be very wrathful...
There is an excellent chance for Nepal to come out stronger and better than it has been in recent decades. Its a chance for the institutions and political elite to reconsider their priorities and help to build a stronger nation. From this destruction we all pray for a wonderful regeneration. May NEPAL return to its past glory as a spiritual beacon. May beauty, love and compassion pervade this wonderful nation. For always!

On the now...


“Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now.”

Eckhart Tolle

Realization...


“To study the Buddha way is to study the self. To study the self is to forget the self. To forget the self is to be actualized by myriad things. When actualized by myriad things, your body and mind as well as the bodies and minds of others drop away. No trace of realization remains, and this no-trace continues endlessly.” 

Dogen, 
"Actualizing the Fundamental Point"

Stillness...


Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. 
How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. 
Allow nature to teach you stillness.

Eckhart Tolle
