Daily Dharma


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

of the year from the past and present masters of Buddhism



It is impossible for compassion and hatred to arise in the mind together, as one will always destroy the other.


Therefore, remember that there is always a positive way to deal with every situation, no matter how challenging it may sometimes be.


Chamtrul Rinpoche



There is nothing in this world that is worth losing a night’s sleep over, nothing.


Tai Situ Rinpoche



The essence of the Buddha’s teachings was that while formal practice can help us to develop direct experience of emptiness, wisdom, and compassion, such experiences are meanings unless we can bring them to bear on every aspect of our daily lives. For it’s in facing the challenges of daily life that we can really measure our development of calmness, insight, and compassion.

Mingyur Rinpoche



The view of the natural state is beyond concepts,
The meditation is beyond meditating,
The conduct is beyond accepting and rejecting,
The fruition is beyond hope and fear.


Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche



Every second of this human life is more precious than skies of wish-granting jewels.


Lama Zopa Rinpoche



You don't have to say anything.
You don't have to teach anything.
You just have to be who you are:
a bright flame shining in the darkness of despair,
a shining example of a person able to cross bridges
by opening your heart and mind.


Tsoknyi Rinpoche



He who loves others and serves them does not slacken his effort when his life is endangered: the fearless sage with true sense of responsibility never forsakes others' desperation.
