Daily Dharma

 

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

of the year from the past and present masters of Buddhism

Sunday

 

I am present in front of anyone who has faith in me, just as the moon casts its reflection, effortlessly, in any vessel filled with water.

 

Padmasambhava

Monday

 

Whatever we do, it is the mind that is most important. This is why the Buddhist teachings focus on perfecting the mind. The mind is king, and body and speech are servants which must do its bidding. It is the mind that conceives faith and the mind that conceives doubt; it is the mind that conceives love and the mind that conceives hatred.

 

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Tuesday

 

Bodhicitta is the medicine which revives and gives life to every sentient being who even hears of it. When you engage in fulfilling the needs of others, your own needs are fulfilled as a by-product.

 

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Wednesday

 

In absolute terms, each moment of experience is empty of a difference in nature of perceiver and perceived. Rather than regarding consciousness merely as the seeing or observing aspect of a moment of experience, it is also the content of that experience.

 

Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche

Thursday

 

Self-liberation means to integrate with whatever it is so there is no subject and no object. So you don't stay with a situation where that, whatever that is, is bothering me, whatever 'me' is. But I myself, the 'me', is in the same condition as that.

 

Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche

Friday

 

On the delusive, extremist path, thinking, "I" and "mine," those who are innocently unaware enter it, and practice without realizing that it leads nowhere. How can reality ever be found by seeking this way?

 

Vairotsana

Saturday

 

The more you examine Buddhism
the more you will discover its greatness.

 

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
