Letting go...


Do everything with a mind that lets go. Do not expect any praise or reward. If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace. If you let go completely, you will know complete peace and freedom. Your struggles with the world will have come to an end...

Miracles...


Each day is a different one,
each day brings a miracle of its own.
It's just a matter of paying attention 
to this miracle.

the universe experiences itself.”

On Dreams...


“If the eye never sleeps, all dreams will naturally cease. If the mind makes no discriminations, the ten thousand things are as they are, of single essence. To understand the mystery of this One essence is to be released from all entanglements. When all things are seen equally the timeless Self-essence is reached.

No comparisons or analogies are possible in this causeless, relationless state. ”

Seng-tsan

Good friends...


Do not choose bad friends.
Do not choose persons of low habits. 
Select good friends. Be discriminating.
Choose the best.”

Radiance of mind...


“The mind is something more radiant than anything else can be, but because counterfeits, passing defilements come and obscure it, it loses its radiance, like the sun when obscured by clouds. Don't go thinking that the sun goes after the clouds. Instead, the clouds come drifting along and obscure the sun.”

Arising of joy...

“In the unthinkable, inscrutable, ordinary nature of reality there is no difference between freedom and bondage. No matter what arises, when you perceive your original nature, the joy arises automatically--and what joy!”

On contemplation...


Learn to contemplate.
Contemplate Glory,
there will be a Light.
Contemplate Truth until it
burns your eyes out.

Stillness...


“Wisdom comes with the ability to be still. 
Just look and just listen. 
No more is needed. 
Being still, looking, and listening activates the 
non-conceptual intelligence within you. 
Let stillness direct your words and actions.”

Eckhart Tolle

Equanimity...


“If the eye never sleeps, all dreams will naturally cease. If the mind makes no discriminations, the ten thousand things are as they are, of single essence. To understand the mystery of this One essence is to be released from all entanglements. When all things are seen equally the timeless Self-essence is reached. No comparisons or analogies are possible in this causeless, relationless state. ”

Je Mila Shepa Dorje La Sol Wa Deb So...


“To disregard oneself, this is the best Dharma. 
This is the best service to Buddha's religion. 
Practicing meditation for life is the best gift. 
to those sentient beings without protection.”

“Time isn't precious at all, 
because it is an illusion.”

The magical space beyond...


“There is a sphere where there is neither earth nor water nor heat nor air, for it is beyond the field of matter; nor is it the sphere of infinite space, or consciousness, for it is beyond the field of mind. There is not the condition of nothingness, neither is there the state of this world or another world, nor sun nor moon. This is the uncreated. This condition I call neither arising nor passing away, neither dying nor being born. It is without form and without change. It is the eternal, which never originates and never passes away. To find it is the end of sorrow.”

Udana Sutta

Stability...


“Even as a great rock is not shaken by the wind, 
the wise man is not shaken by praise or blame. ” 

Buddha
