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

of the year from the past and present masters of Buddhism

Sunday

 

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

 

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Monday

 

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

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

Wednesday

 

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

 

Tulku Urgyen 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

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

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
