Quotes from Chamtrul Rinpoche and other masters of Buddhism

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

The practice of Dharma is a constant battle within, replacing previous negative conditioning or habituation with new positive conditioning.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

We live under threat from painful emotions: anger, desire, pride, jealousy and so on. Therefore we should always be ready to counter these with the appropriate antidote. True practitioners may be recognized by their unfailing mindfulness.

 

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Tuesday

 

When it is impossible for anger to arise within you, you find no outside enemies anywhere. An outside enemy exists only if there is anger inside.

 

Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche

Wednesday

 

Samsara is mind turned outwardly, lost in its projections.
Nirvana is mind turned inwardly, recognizing its nature.

 

Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Thursday

 

A king's robe or an old blanket can keep you warm.
A gold throne or the bare ground can be your seat.
A grand palace or a mud hut can be your shelter.
A jewelled plate or a wooden pot can hold your food.
The external world does not destroy your inner peace,
But your attachment and aversion will.

 

Chamtrul Rinpoche

Padmasambhava

Friday

 

You may possess the power and might of a world ruler, but unless you gain mastery over your own mind, when the time of death arrives you still haven’t attained the power of freedom. So gain mastery over your mind!

 

Padmasambhava

Shantideva

Saturday

 

For as long as space endures,
And for as long as living beings remain,
Until then may I too abide,
To dispel the misery of the world.

 

Shantideva
