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.

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

Happy New Year

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.

Walk the path

No one saves us but ourselves.
No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path.


Gautama Buddha

Your journey

You are far from the end of your journey.
The way is not in the sky.
The way is in the heart.
See how you love.


Gautama Buddha

Fun and Tolerance

Man suffers only because he takes seriously
what the gods made for fun.


Alan W. Watts
