Where to find the real Buddha

Look for Buddha outside your own mind,
and Buddha becomes the devil.


Dogen Zenji

Tolerance

In the practice of tolerance,
one’s enemy is the best teacher.


The XIV Dalai Lama

The idea of karma

People get into a heavy-duty sin and guilt trip, feeling that if things are going wrong,
that means that they did something bad and they are being punished.

That’s not the idea at all.

The idea of karma is that you continually get the teachings that you need to open your heart. To the degree that you didn’t understand in the past how to stop protecting your soft spot, how to stop armoring your heart, you’re given this gift of teachings in the form of your life, to give you everything you need to open further.


Pema Chodron

Happiness

It is impossible to build one’s own happiness on the unhappiness of others.
This perspective is at the heart of Buddhist teachings.


Daisaku Ikeda

Joy, peace and love

When we are mindful,
deeply in touch with the present moment,
our understanding of what is going on deepens,
and we begin to be filled with acceptance,
joy, peace and love.
