The Buddha denies the existence of any permanent entity either physical or mental. We call this theory about self as Anatmavada.

I have never seen them satisfied

Hundreds of stupid flies gather
On a piece of rotten meat,
Enjoying, they think, a delicious feast.
This image fits with the song
Of the myriads of foolish living beings
Who seek happiness in superficial pleasures;
In countless ways they try,
Yet I have never seen them satisfied.

The XIV Dalai Lama

We have a mind

We don’t need more money,
we don’t need greater success or fame,
we don’t need the perfect body or even the perfect mate—right now.

At this very moment,
we have a mind,
which is all the basic equipment we need to achieve complete happiness.


The XIV Dalai Lama

Je Suis Paris

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else;
you are the one who gets burned.”

The Buddha

Je suis Paris

Conquer the angry man by love.
Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness.
Conquer the miser with generosity.
Conquer the liar with truth

But what should we do with terrorists?

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
