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

 

Owning nothing and in prison, an experienced meditator could still feel joyful and free. Whilst somebody else who may have every conceivable luxury and freedom could still feel joyless and imprisoned.

 

Chamtrul 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
