Whenever you hear that someone else has been successful, rejoice.
Always practice rejoicing for others--whether your friend or your enemy.
If you cannot practice rejoicing, no matter how long you live, you will not be happy.

At this time, while you have all the opportunities, if you do not do your best to achieve the pure, stainless path to enlightenment when will you do it?
If you don't meditate, don't practise the graduated path to enlightenment, especially bodhicitta, in this life, then when?
When will you practise? When will you have this realization?
If, in this life, you don't achieve renunciation, bodhicitta and sunyata, as well as the two stages of tantra, when will you?
When will you have these attainments?
When will you become enlightened?
When will you perform perfect work for sentient beings?

A sick body with a good heart is more beneficial to future lives than a fit, healthy body that is used for self-cherishing.

When there is hallucination, there is the truth, by recognising it as hallucination.
Where there is suffering, there is peace and bliss, by letting go and experiencing it for numberless suffering sentient beings.
Always think of how others are kind and precious Treat them as you would like to be treated.

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.

By renouncing samsara, we renounce our habitual grasping, unhappy minds.
And by renouncing samsara, we embrace our potential for enlightenment.

If you know the psychological nature of your own mind, depression is spontaneously dispelled;
instead of being enemies and strangers, all living beings become your friends.
The narrow mind rejects; wisdom accepts.
Check your own mind to see whether or not this is true.

The only reason why we are still here is because we believe there is a reason to be here.
So why are we still swimming in the sea of samsara?

What is it that binds you?
You are not bound by any chains now.
Is it just the thought that you are bound that binds you?
Mental chains can only be broken by mental effo

To be angry is to let others' mistakes punish yourself.
To forgive others is to be good to yourself.

We are not compelled to meditate by some outside agent, by other people, or by God.
Rather, just as we are responsible for our own suffering, so are we solely responsible for our own cure.
We have created the situation in which we find ourselves, and it is up to us to create the circumstances for our release.

Be gentle first with yourself - if you wish to be gentle with others.

When Lord Buddha spoke about suffering, he wasn't referring simply to superficial problems like illness and injury, but to the fact that the dissatisfied nature of the mind itself is suffering. No matter how much of something you get, it never satisfies your desire for better or more. This unceasing desire is suffering; its nature is emotional frustration.

Religion is not just some dry intellectual idea but rather your basic philosophy of life: you hear a teaching that makes sense to you, find through experience that it relates positively with your psychological makeup, get a real taste of it through practice, and adopt it as your spiritual path.
That's the right way to enter the spiritual path.

If your spiritual practice and the demands of your everyday life are not in harmony, it means there's something wrong with the way you are practicing.
Your practice should satisfy your dissatisfied mind while providing solutions to the problems of everyday life.
If it doesn't, check carefully to see what you really understand about your religious practice

It is never too late.
Even if you are going to die tomorrow,
Keep yourself straight and clear and be a happy human being today.
If you keep your situation happy day by day,
you will eventually reach the greatest happiness of Enlightenment.

Normally, we do not so much look at things as overlook them.

Suttas are not meant to be 'sacred scriptures' that tell us what to believe. One should read them, listen to them, think about them, contemplate them, and investigate the present reality, the present experience with them. Then, and only then, can one insightfully know the truth beyond words.

Like it or not, if you look at your own mind you will discover it is void and groundless; as insubstantial as empty space.

Anything that is created must sooner or later die.
Enlightenment is permanent because we have not produced it; we have merely discovered it.

Meditation is not to escape from society,
but to come back to ourselves and see what is going on.
Once there is seeing, there must be acting.
With mindfulness, we know what to do and what not to do to help

In fact, everything we encounter in this world with our six senses is an inkblot test.
You see what you are thinking and feeling, seldom what you are looking at.

If an untrained sentient being can create Real Hell out of Total Ignorance,
why can't a perfect Buddha create a Real Pureland out of Total Compassion?
