What helps you?


“…… But hear me, friends:
We, you and I, are to convince them through our lives,
through the strength of our faith,
through the joyfulness of our working,
so that they have to ask us : ‘What helps you, Brothers?’
Only then may we speak…”

~ Buddha.

Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow . . .


“Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow
come and go like the wind.
To be happy, rest like a giant tree in the midst of them all.”

~ Gautama Buddha

The mind of the giver…


“Before giving, the mind of the giver is happy.
While giving, the mind of the giver is peaceful;
and having given, the mind of the giver is uplifted.”

– Buddha

Like swans, they rise and leave the lake.


“Those who awaken never rest in one place.
Like swans, they rise and leave the lake.
On the air they rise and fly an invisible course.
Their food is knowledge.
They live on emptiness.
…They have seen how to break free.
Who can follow them?”

Sunday reflection… The heart-lotus blossoms forth.


“The heart-lotus blossoms forth,
and eternal peace is obtained,
as one’s light merges into the Light.”
