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

Refuge

Buddha is the teacher,
Dharma is the actual refuge and the Sangha is the one which assists in understanding or establishing the objects of refuge.


The XIV Dalai Lama

Advice

Even if you can recite the whole Tripitaka by heart,
even if you know the entire Dharma,
if you don’t have the guru’s advice,
there will be a gap between you and the Dharma when you practice.


Atisha Dipankara Shrijnana

Simplicity

The simplicity of the good man is hard to follow.
The simplicity of the evil man is easy to follow.

Cultivate the right attitude

If you can cultivate the right attitude,
your enemies are your best spiritual teachers,
because their presence provides you with the opportunity to enhance and develop tolerance, patience and understanding.


The XIV Dalai Lama

Open our hearts

If we learn to open our hearts,
anyone,
including the people who drive us crazy,
can be our teacher.
