of the year from the past and present masters of Buddhism

Sunday

 

In brief, taking your own mind as witness, make your life and practice one, and at the time of death, with no thought of anything left undone, do not be ashamed of yourself. This itself is the pith instruction of all practices.

 

Dudjom Rinpoche

Monday

 

If you lack the wealth of contentment in your mind,
You will think that you need all kinds of useless things,
And you will end up even worse than an ordinary person,
Because you won’t manage even a single session of practice.
So set your mind on freedom from the need for anything at all.

 

Chatral Rinpoche

Tuesday

 

Things derive their being and nature in mutual dependence and are nothing of themselves.

 

Nagarjuna

Wednesday

 

Hard times build determination and inner strength. Through them we can also come to appreciate the uselessness of anger.

 

Instead of getting angry nurture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstances they provide us with invaluable opportunities to practise tolerance and patience.

 

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Thursday

 

The analyses in this treatise are not given
Out of an excessive fondness for debate.
It is not our fault if, in the course of this teaching,

Other philosophical systems come to be destroyed.

 

Chandrakirti

Friday

 

Our attention should be firmly directed inwards and we should take the teachings very personally, constantly relating them to ourselves and to the search to discover the real cause of our difficulties.

 

Geshe Sonam Rinchen

Saturday

 

Even in decline, a virtuous man increases the beauty of his behavior.

 

A burning stick, though turned to the ground, has its flame drawn upwards.

 

Sakya Pandita
