It is our minds that create this world. ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
Buddha left a road map, Jesus left a road map, Krishna left a road map, Rand McNally left a road map. But you still have to travel the road yourself ~ Stephen Levine
Buddha Sutra quotes by Stephen Levine
The problem starts at the secondary level, not with the originator or developer of the idea but with the people who are attracted to it, who adopt it, who cling to it until their last nail breaks, and who invariably lack the overview, flexibility, imagination, and, most importantly, sense of humor, to maintain it in the spirit in which it was hatched. Ideas are made by masters, dogma by disciples, and the Buddha is always killed on the road. ~ Tom Robbins
Buddha Sutra quotes by Tom Robbins
The wise ones fashioned speech with their thought, sifting it as grain is sifted through a sieve. ~ Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Buddha
To utter pleasant words without practicing them, is like a fine flower without fragrance. ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
The Buddha said that all conscious beings possess an enlightened nature.
Because of that, we have this natural purity, peacefulness and power.
We can rest the mind naturally because we are already in possession of these qualities.
If one can rest the mind naturally, that's the best meditation. ~ Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
Buddha Sutra quotes by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
The big belly can accommodate all kinds of things. The benevolence is never let a dust behind. ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
There are four places of regular and fixed occurrence (in the history of) all Buddhas:--first, the place where they attained to perfect Wisdom (and became Buddha); second, the place where they turned the wheel of the Law;(20) third, the place where they preached the Law, discoursed of righteousness, and discomfited (the advocates of) erroneous doctrines; and fourth, the place where they came down, after going up to the Trayatrimsas heaven to preach the Law for the benefit of their mothers. ~ Faxian
Buddha Sutra quotes by Faxian
Rage is a powerful energy that with diligent practice can be transformed into fierce compassion. However much we disagree with our enemies, our task is to identify with them. They too feel justified in their point of view. ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
Since we are already Buddhas, happy and suffering Buddhas, wise and confused Buddhas, we are already Buddha. ~ Joan Halifax
Buddha Sutra quotes by Joan Halifax
If you help others to be happy, nobody can steal your happiness. ~ Debasish Mridha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Debasish Mridha
As long as we observe love for others and respect for their rights and dignity in our daily lives, then whether we are learned or unlearned, whether we believe in the Buddha or God, follow some religion or none at all, as long as we have compassion for others and conduct ourselves with restraint out of a sense of responsibility, there is no doubt we will be happy. ~ Dalai Lama
Buddha Sutra quotes by Dalai Lama
Those who awaken never rest in one place. Like swans, they rise and leave the lake. On the air they rise and fly an invisible course. Their food is knowledge. They live on emptiness. They have seen how to break free. Who can follow them? ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
My world view is somewhat unique. I have learned from many great philosophers including Plato, Socrates, Buddha, Jesus, Darwin, Tagore, Emerson, and many more. ~ Debasish Mridha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Debasish Mridha
Start your day by awakening early to welcome the morning sun with a smile, love, and gratitude. ~ Debasish Mridha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Debasish Mridha
The wisest man is he who is kind to all, compassionate to many, and rude to none. ~ Debasish Mridha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Debasish Mridha
The Gift of Truth excels all other Gifts. ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
Do not be concerned with the faults of other persons. Do not see others' faults with a hateful mind. There is an old saying that if you stop seeing others' faults, then naturally seniors and venerated and juniors are revered. Do not imitate others' faults; just cultivate virtue. Buddha prohibited unwholesome actions, but did not tell us to hate those who practice unwholesome actions. ~ Dogen
Buddha Sutra quotes by Dogen
When we sit in meditation, we are closer than usual to the world as it is. By simply bringing body, breath, and mind together in the present moment, we touch Buddha; we touch reality, and we are in the world as it is. Most people's experience in this state is peaceful and rejuvenating. ~ Andrew Furst
Buddha Sutra quotes by Andrew Furst
By taking these three steps you will get closer to the Gods: First, Say the Truth. Second: Don't let you get Angry. Third: Give, even though you have so little to give. ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
How wonderful, how miraculous, all beings, but all beings, are fully endowed with the wisdom and power of the Tathagat. But, sadly, human beings, due to sticky attachments, are not aware of it ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
If you have any hate in your heart, you will not be able to create a society that is just. ~ Debasish Mridha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Debasish Mridha
Everything that happens to us is the result of what we ourselves have thought, said, or done.We alone are responsible for our lives. ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
There have been more thoughtful and more destructively thoughtful times than ours: times like those in which Buddha appeared, for instance, in which the people themselves, after centuries of sectarian quarrels, had sunk so deeply into the abyss of philosophical dogmas, as, from time to time, European people have done in regard to the fine points of religious dogma.

European Pessimism is still in its infancy - a fact which argues against it: it has not yet attained to that prodigious and yearning fixity of sight to which it attained in India once upon a time, and in which nonentity is reflected; there is still too much of the 'ready-made,' and not enough of the 'evolved' in its constitution, too much learned and poetic Pessimism; I mean that a good deal of it has been discovered, invented, and 'created,' but not caused. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Buddha Sutra quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
If you put Buddha, Jesus Christ, Socrates, Shakespeare, Arjuna, Krishna at a dinner table together, I can't see them having an argument. ~ Hugh Jackman
Buddha Sutra quotes by Hugh Jackman
Involvement with the eight worldly dharmas keeps beings imprisoned in the realms of samsara and renders them susceptible to the hosts of emotions. The eight worldly dharmas are: praise and blame, gain and loss, fame and disgrace, happiness and suffering.

The eight worldly dharmas constitute our attachment to hopes and fears: We hope for praise, gain, fame, and happiness while fearing blame, loss, disgrace, and suffering. Entangled in these eight concerns, we give our energy and intelligence to the pursuit of these hopes and the avoidance of these fears. Our way of thinking is completely dominated by these eight concerns, which the world proclaims to be of utmost importance. But Śāntideva reminds us that to achieve true peace of mind, one must "... turn this thinking upside down," becoming indifferent to hope and unmoved by fear. ~ Dharma Publishing
Buddha Sutra quotes by Dharma Publishing
No one can escape death and unhappiness. If people expect only happiness in life, they will be disappointed. ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
The meaning of life is life itself. The reward of love is love itself. The joy of the journey is not in the destination but in the journey itself. ~ Debasish Mridha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Debasish Mridha
Solitude is happiness for one who is content, who has heard the Dhamma and clearly sees. Non-affliction is happiness in the world - harmlessness towards all living beings. ~ Gautama Buddha
Buddha Sutra quotes by Gautama Buddha
As long as you are not conscious of your self you can live; but if you become conscious of your self you fall from one grave into another. All your rebirths could ultimately make you sick. The Buddha therefore finally gave up on rebirth, for he had had enough of crawling through all human and animal forms. After all the rebirths you still remain the lion crawling on the earth, the Chameleon, a caricature, one prone to changing colors, a crawling shimmering lizard, but precisely not a lion, whose nature is related to the sun, who draws his power from within himself who does not crawl around in the protective colors of the environment, and who does not defend himself by going into hiding. I recognized the chameleon and no longer want to crawl on the earth and change colors and be reborn; instead I want to exist from my own force, like the sun which gives light and does not suck light.

That belongs to the earth. I recall my solar nature and would like to rush to my rising. But ruins stand in my way They say: 'With regard to men you should be this or that.' My chameleonesque skin shudders. They obtrude upon me and want to color me. But that should no longer be. Neither good nor evil shall be my masters. I push them aside, the laughable survivors, and go on my way again, which leads me to the East. The quarreling powers that for so long stood between me and myself lie behind me. ~ C.G. Jung
Buddha Sutra quotes by C.G. Jung
