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

of the year from the past and present masters of Buddhism

Sunday

 

No matter how trapped we may feel by anxiety, depression, or guilt, there is always another option available to us, and one that doesn't ask us to stop feeling what we already feel, or to stop being who and what we are.

 

When we know where to look, and how to look, we can find peace of mind in the midst of raging emotions, profound insight in the midst of complete confusion, and the seeds of compassion in our darkest moments, even when we feel completely lost and alone.

 

Mingyur Rinpoche

Monday

 

Always take the lowest place. Help other beings as much as you can. In everything you do, simply work at developing love and compassion until they have become a fundamental part of you.

 

Patrul Rinpoche

Tuesday

 

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself. Perception is not reality. What appear to be faults in others may actually be reflections of our own emotional afflictions. I don't have an attitude problem; you have a perception problem.

 

Remember the way people treat us is their karma. The way we react is our own.

 

Trulshik Rinpoche

Wednesday

 

The wise, when studying, suffer pains;
Without exertion, it is impossible to become wise.
He that is passionate for a small pleasure
Can never reach great peace.

 

Sakya Pandita

Thursday

 

If, as you meditate on mind training, your personality becomes stiff with pride and arrogance, its as though you have reduced a god to a demon; dharma has become non-dharma. The more you meditate on mind training and dharma, the more supple your personality should become. Act as the lowest servant to everyone.

 

Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye

Friday

 

Do not investigate phenomena, but investigate the mind.


If you investigate the mind, you'll know the one thing which resolves all.

 

Padmasambhava

Saturday

 

Whoever has a correct view of one thing,
Has the correct view of all things,
For the emptiness of one thing
Is the emptiness of all things.

 

Aryadeva
