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

of the year from the past and present masters of Buddhism

Sunday

 

Restoring our inner peace, and bringing benefit to others, the flames of anger and hatred will cease when love and compassion arise, as if pouring water onto fire. 

 

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Monday

 

Though grief in the ocean of samsara
Is pointed out, and its renunciation is urged,
Few people are really convinced
And renounce it with determination.


Though knowing that life will ever turn to death,
Few feel uneasy, or think that it will end.

 

Milarepa

Tuesday

 

What arises through the meeting of conditions
And ceases to exist when these are lacking,
Is artificial like the mirror image;
How can true existence be ascribed to it?

 

Shantideva 

Wednesday

 

Emptiness is the `knowing of one that frees all.’
Emptiness is the supreme king of medicines.
Emptiness is the nectar of immortality.
Emptiness is spontaneous accomplishment beyond effort.
Emptiness is enlightenment without exertion.

 

Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche

Thursday

 

Buddhism explains that the fundamental nature of human consciousness is pure and clear; that the nuclear essence of human beings is their mind, not this body of flesh and blood.

 

Furthermore, we believe that recognizing our lives as pleasurable or miserable depends largely on how our mind interprets them. If you think your life is miserable, it becomes miserable.

 

Lama Yeshe

Friday

 

Whenever you study or contemplate the Dharma,
Rely not on the words, but on the meaning.
If the meaning is understood, then regardless of the speaker’s style,
There will be no conflict.

 

Mipham Rinpoche

Saturday

 

There is no better way to deal with enemies than to feel great love for them, realizing that in former lives they have been your loving parents.

 

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
