Cannot be hidden

Three things cannot be long hidden:
The sun, the moon, and the truth.


Gautama Buddha

The charade with ourselves

In our charade with ourselves we pretend that our war is not really war.
We have changed the name of the War Department to the Defense Department and call a whole class of nuclear missiles Peace Keepers!

The road to truth

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth;
not going all the way,
and not starting


Gautama Buddha

Truth

The truth indeed has never been preached by the Buddha,
seeing that one has to realize it within oneself.

Find the Truth

There are thousands upon thousands of students,
who have practised meditation and obtained its fruits.
Do not doubt its possibilities because of the simplicity of the method.

If you can not find the truth right where you are,
where else do you expect to find it?


Dogen Zenji

Actions speak louder than words

All the holy words you read
and all the holy words you speak are as nothing,
if you do not act upon them.

Even if you read little and say little but live the right way,
forsaking craving, hatred and delusion,
you will know the truth and find calmness
and will show others the path.


Gautama Buddha
