What is this mind?

What is this mind?
Who is hearing these sounds?

Do not mistake any state for
Self-realization,
but continue to ask yourself even more intensely,
what is it that hears?

Found Buddha

The Buddha is found in other people

– even the ones we do not like very much.


Francis Harold Cook

Lost in a moment

Your body is like a dew-drop on the morning grass,
your life is as brief as a flash of lightning.

Momentary and vain, it is lost in a moment.

Birth and Death

Birth is okay and death is okay,
if we know that they are only concepts in our mind.

Reality transcends both birth and death


Thich Nhat Hanh

Don’t be a Fool

Fools wait for a lucky day.

But every day is a lucky day
for an industrious man.


Gautama Buddha

Nature of Mind

Choose to be optimistic,
it feels better.


The XIV Dalai Lama
