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

Sunday

 

We should remember that the main obstacle which prevented us from generating bodhicitta before was the distinction we made between friends and enemies.

 

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Monday

 

Ask yourself: Do I want to continue being a great practitioner of ignorance, anger, and desire? Or do I want to become a great practitioner of wisdom and compassion instead?

 

Do not waste your precious human rebirth by making the wrong decision.

 

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Tuesday

 

Mind's nature is and always has been Buddha.

 

It has neither birth nor cessation, like space.

 

When you realize the real meaning of the equal nature of all things,

 

To remain in that state without searching is meditation.

 

Garab Dorje

Wednesday

 

Shakyamuni Buddha compared attachment to drinking salt water from an ocean. The more we drink, the thirstier we get. Likewise, when our mind is conditioned by attachment, however much we have, we never really experience contentment.

 

Mingyur Rinpoche

Thursday

 

Human potential is the same for all. Your feeling, "I am of no value", is wrong. Absolutely wrong. You are deceiving yourself. We all have the power of thought – so what are you lacking? If you have willpower, then you can change anything. It is usually said that you are your own master.

 

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Friday

 

Mind, which is like lightning, a breeze, or passing clouds,


Is coloured by its various thoughts of everything under the sun,


But when examined thoroughly is found to lack a basis or origin.

 

Just like a mirage on the horizon, it is devoid of essential nature.


While being empty, it appears; and while appearing, it is empty.

 

Mipham Rinpoche

Saturday

 

The primordially pure nature of existence, ultimate reality, free of intellect and concepts, is obscured by conceiving of a self and grasping at duality.
