Published week by week, you will find a quote for each day

of the year from the past and present masters of Buddhism

Sunday

 

Let go of what has passed.
Let go of what may come.
Let go of what is happening now.
Don’t try to figure anything out.
Don’t try to make anything happen.
Relax, right now, and rest.

 

Tilopa

Monday

 

Thoughts are just thoughts. Feelings are just feelings. Sensations are just sensations. They come and go in waking life as quickly and easily as they do in dreams.

 

Mingyur Rinpoche

Tuesday

 

When you see that beings have fallen, just as you have, into the ocean of existence and are stumbling, unable to walk in a safe direction, because the eye of wisdom - which distinguishes what to adopt and what to discard - for them is closed, is it not better to care for others and to strive for their welfare, you who are in the Conqueror's lineage?

 

Tsongkhapa

Wednesday

 

Take your stand on the ultimate practice of the heart essence — samsara and nirvana are the display of awareness. Without distraction, without meditation, in a state of natural relaxation, constantly remain in the pure, all-penetrating nakedness of ultimate reality.

 

Dudjom Rinpoche

Thursday

 

Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.

 

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Friday

 

Look at the actual nature of harm itself: it is ungraspable. Like a drawing made on the water's surface. When you truly experience that, resentment vanishes of its own accord. As soon as the fiery waves of thoughts subside, everything becomes like empty sky, which has nothing to gain and nothing to lose.

 

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Saturday

 

Not by birth is one an outcast,

Not by birth is one a brahman.

By deed one becomes an outcast,

By deed one becomes a brahman.

 

Shakyamuni Buddha
