Buddha Blog

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

The Anatmavada Buddha Blog contains over 500 Buddhist quotes. You can select them by author, keyword or category.

Be a Fool

He who asks a question,
is a fool for a minute.

Hoe who does not,
remains a fool forever

Educated for the real Life

Everyone is talking about education,
but what are we being educated to be?

Ordinary citizens, that’s all.


Kodo Sawaki

Be yourself

Stop trying to be something special –
and just be what you are.

Hold fire.

Just sit!


Kodo Sawaki

Wrong views

Those who are afraid when there should be no fear,
and are not afraid when there should be fear,
such men, due to their wrong views go to woeful states.


Dhammapada

No one can do that for us

No matter how far out on the sea of suffering we’ve sailed,
all that is required is to turn toward awakening.

It’s never too late,
but it takes that turning,
and no one can do that for us.

Thank you

Assailed by afflictions, we discover Dharma
And find the way to liberation. Thank you, evil forces!

When sorrows invade the mind, we discover Dharma
And find lasting happiness. Thank you, sorrows!

Through harm caused by spirits we discover Dharma
And find fearlessness. Thank you, ghosts and demons!

Through people’s hate we discover Dharma
And find benefits and happiness. Thank you, those who hate us!

Through cruel adversity, we discover Dharma
And find the unchanging way. Thank you, adversity!

Through being impelled to by others, we discover Dharma
And find the essential meaning. Thank you, all who drive us on!

We dedicate our merit to you all, to repay your kindness.
