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

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

This life is only a test

This life is a test-it is only a test.
If it had been an actual life,
you would have received further
instructions on where to go and what to do.
Remember, this life is only a test.

Miracles

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle.
But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air,
but to walk on earth.

Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize:
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black,
curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes.
All is a miracle.


Thich Nhat Hanh

Love and Affection

You yourself,
as much as anybody in the entire universe,
deserve your love and affection.


Gautama Buddha

Be alive

Every day, think as you wake up,
today I am fortunate to be alive,
I have a precious human life,
I am not going to waste it.
I am going to use all my energies to develop myself,
to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.
I am going to have kind thoughts towards others,
I am not going to get angry or think badly about others.
I am going to benefit others as much as I can.


The XIV Dalai Lama
