The way to happiness is: keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, give much. Fill your life with love. Do as you would be done by.
When you have great joy, you will become Buddha’s!
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly. There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.
Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.
Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.
Surely if living creatures saw the results of all their evil deeds, they would turn away from them in disgust. But selfhood blinds them, and they cling to their obnoxious desires. They crave pleasure for themselves and they cause pain to others; when death destroys their individuality, they find no peace; their thirst for existence abides and their selfhood reappears in new births. Thus they continue to move in the coil and can find no escape from the hell of their own making.
When action comes out of nothing it creates no karma.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought; what we think we become.
For, owners of their deeds (karma) are the beings, heirs of their deeds; their deeds are the womb from which they sprang; with their deeds they are bound up; their deeds are their refuge. Whatever deeds they do-good or evil-of such they will be the heirs. And wherever the beings spring into existence, there their deeds will ripen; and wherever their deeds ripen, there they will earn the fruits of those deeds, be it in this life, or be it in the next life, or be it in any other future life.
Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.
Karma grows from our hearts. Karma terminates from our hearts.
Full of love for all things in the world, practicing virtue, in order to benefit others, this man alone is happy.
Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.
To him in whom love dwells, the whole world is but one family.
You can search the entire universe and not find a single being more worthy of love than you.
Until he has unconditional and unbiased love for all beings, man will not find peace.
You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
The good renounce everything. The pure don’t babble about sensual desires. Whether touched by pleasure or pain, the wise show no change of temper.
Just as a snake sheds its skin, we must shed our past over and over again.
