Quotes from Chamtrul Rinpoche and other masters of Buddhism

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Sunday

 

Those who are content to have nothing, will feel like they have everything.

 

But those who want to have everything, will feel like they have nothing.

 

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Shantarakshita

While nothing ever moves from equality’s expanse,
Appearances shine in a wondrous magic show.


So many rivers flow into the mighty sea,
Where all their different waters have the same salty taste.


Though many they may be, they all taste the same,
In this there is no differentiation.


And everything there is all throughout existence,
All have the telling flavour of the natural state.


How wonderful this is, this is wonderful indeed,
What happiness this is, this is happiness indeed.

 

Shantarakshita

Many of us seek diversions - going to the city, travelling, seeing films and so forth. If one recognizes the nature of one’s own mind, then that itself is the real entertainment, the real display. Simply to rest in the nature of mind, one will come to an understanding of all situations in samsara and nirvana. Then it will not be necessary to go looking for entertainment.

My realization is higher than the sky,

But my observance of karma is finer than grains of flour.
