Teachings Of Buddha

Neither in the sky nor in mid-ocean, nor in entering a mountain cave, is found the place, where abiding one may escape the consequences of an evil deed.

Speak not harshly to anyone; Those who are spoken to will answer thee in the same way. Painful indeed is language violent; Blow for blow will pursue thee.

He who experiences the unity of life sees his own Self in all beings, and all beings in his own Self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye. 

The original human nature is pure. It is our worldly cultures and conditionings that fogged our mind and divided people. 

Self is an error, an illusion, a dream; open your eyes and awake. He who has found there is no 'I' will let go of all the lusts and dreams of egotism.

We are the results of what we were. And will be the results of what we are.

No enemy can harm one so much as one’s own thoughts of craving, hate and jealousy. 

Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Make your peace with that and all will be well. 

He who sees things as they really are, is not affected by scents whether vice or pleasant.

When emotional thoughts such as pride, hatred, jealousy arise, there is no place for us to practice patience. 

Just as a solid rock remains unshaken by the wind. Even so, may blame and praise not ruffle the wise.

Let a man overcome anger by love; Let him overcome evil by good; Let him overcome greed by liberality, and lies by truth.

A man is not learned because he talks much; He who is patient, free from hatred and fear, he is called learned.
