Quotes from Chamtrul Rinpoche and other masters of Buddhism

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Sunday

 

During your life you might meet many people and cultures who will try to discourage you away from the path. But once you start to taste the fruits of your practice, you will be filled with so much unshakable faith and enthusiasm, that you will become like a mountain that no wind can move.

 

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Mingyur Rinpoche

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

Tsongkhapa

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

Dudjom Rinpoche

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

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

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

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

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

Shakyamuni Buddha

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
