According to Buddha

In all activities, may I examine my mind
And as soon as conflicting emotions arise,
Endangering myself and others,
May I firmly face and avert them.

unforgettable, though near or far
like a song of love that clings to me
how the thought of you does things to me
never before has someone been more
unforgettable in every way

  23. Hi Hedy, Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your photography is inspiring and nostalgic. Wondering what text you use for your According to the Buddha pieces? If you wouldn’t mind sharing, I’d like to take a look at the source. Thanks, Catherine

    • well the Buddhas have much too say so I pick and choose…linger in some and briefly visit others … this post I found myself readings words composed by the Buddhist Master Langri Tangpa (1054-1123), Eight Verses for Training the Mind which apparently “is a highly revered text from the Mahayana Lojong (mind training) tradition. These instructions offer essential practices for cultivating the awakening mind of compassion, wisdom, and love. This eight-verse lojong enshrines the very heart of Dharma, revealing the true essence of the Mahayana path to liberation. Even a single line of this practice can be seen as encapsulating the entire teaching of the Buddha. For even a single statement of this mind training practice has the incredible power to help us subdue our self-oriented behavior and mental afflictions.”…thanks for asking ~ compose a beautiful day ~. hedy ☺️🤍💫and I’m a sloppy buddhist 🤓🙏

      • Thanks, Hedy for the information. I’ll look this up. The language of these lines spoke to me. Your poetry is very moving. Your photos remind me of nostalgic places to visit. So evocative of time moving through endless change, in forgotten places and for a moment seeming timeless in the frame. 🙏🏻 Peace

        • I read it and found it a site for talking with children and then another for prison reforms🤓also I use the words of music as one of my intentions for this “sloppy”blog …I also love music 🎼 🎹 🎷 🎶 🎻 🎧 thanks for your comment ~ sending you joy hedy

          • I found several books online with the text. Not sure which book you use? Thanks for this insight into your practice. I have a friend who is interested in Tibetan Buddhism. Would this be a good book for a beginner? Music seems very appropriate.

  24. Let the band and nature play on 💕
