How to find a buddha ~ Bodhidharma http://justdharma.com/s/6m53y  To find a buddha, all you have to do is see your nature. Your nature is the buddha. And the buddha is the person who's free, free of plans, free of cares. If you don't see your nature and run around all day looking somewhere else, you'll never find a buddha. The truth is, there's nothing to find. But to reach such an understanding you need a teacher. And you need to struggle to make yourself understand.    – Bodhidharma  from…

The idea of birth and death ~ Thich Nhat Hanh http://justdharma.com/s/w86v4  Birth and death are only ideas we have in our mind, and these ideas cannot be applied to reality. It is just like the idea of above and below. Heaven is above, and hell is below. But the people who are sitting right now on the other side of the planet must disagree, because the idea of the above and below does not apply to the cosmos, exactly like the idea of birth and death.  – Thich Nhat Hanh  from the book "Thich…

A ridiculous comedy ~ Ryokan http://justdharma.com/s/6my6j  Where there is beauty, there is ugliness.  When something is right, something else is wrong.  Knowledge and ignorance depend on each other.  It has been like this since the beginning.  How could it be otherwise now?  Wanting to toss out one and hold onto the other  makes for a ridiculous comedy.  You must still deal with everything ever-changing,  even when you say it's wonderful.  – Ryokan  quoted in the book "Wisdom for the Soul…

Turning towards our distress ~ Setsuan Gaelyn Godwin http://quotes.justdharma.com/turning-towards-our-distress-setsuan-gaelyn-godwin/  As much as possible, I attempt to step toward my distress rather than turn away at the first whiff of discomfort. A better way to put it might be to turn toward, rather than immediately turn away from, distress — turn toward, then take a good look. It’s clear that responses are often governed by habits that have carved a path over time, and we can develop a…

Limited expressions of the world of emptiness ~ Shunryu Suzuki http://justdharma.com/s/wnm5t  All descriptions of reality are limited expressions of the world of emptiness.
