According to Buddha

In all truly sacred traditions there is an essential resolve to cherish life and treat others ethically and kindly. All these traditions encourage us to be open to divine presence, both within and without, and tell us ‘to practice what we preach’ without hypocrisy or sleight of hand. For many, this message is of essential importance no matter who is carrying it.

if you want to meet me come on down
if you want to see me on the town
i will bring some of my mistakes
and you will bring a smile right to my face

According to Buddha

You have to go through the darkness to truly know the light. This may sound like a cliche, but it’s true nonetheless. Often the greatest doubts occur just before a breakthrough.

le soir ma mère nous chantait quand j’étais enfant
l’histoire d’un bateau perdu et d’un oiseau blanc
un jour le bateau s’en va droit vers l’océan
et seule, le cœur plein d’amour, une fille attend

According to Buddha

One hundred times a day,
I recall the spiritual support;
my congenial friend comes to mind.
The sketch of past lives becomes clearer;
mind yearning, my fondness increases.
“Separation” is the heart being ripped out.
Ah! It is like that. But there is no need to be sad.
Hold in your heart the oath of the mother dakinis.
May the sublime three jewels and guardians bless the congenial
friend so that our wishes may be fulfilled.

According to Buddha

Everything inside and around us wants to reflect itself in us. We don’t have to go anywhere to obtain the truth. We only need to be still and things will reveal themselves in the clear water of your heart.

we float on the river of time
hold steady, hold steady
the sea comes, calls the summer
forced out the cold
don’t follow the change of the tides
hold steady, hold steady

According to Buddha

Compassion is not about kindness. Compassion is about awareness. Compassion in the general sense of kindness would be an expression of awareness, but one that might not necessarily be free from the stain of ego-grasping. Genuine compassion is egoless.

According to Buddha

We really ought to have confidence in human beings. Although humans have damaged the environment, we must be confident that humans can also save the Earth. I hope people with the same vision can join together to raise the awareness of environmental protection and save the Earth.

Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, for I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.

According to Buddha

But think about it.  Ask yourself: Where was I before I was born? What am I in this world? When am I ever really ‘myself’? By reflecting on these questions, you may discover that each ‘self’ is but an illusion.
