Right Speech ~ Thich Nhat Hanh http://justdharma.com/s/xewd2 Sometimes we speak clumsily and create internal knots in others. Then we say, "I was just telling the truth." It may be the truth, but if our way of speaking causes unnecessary suffering, it is not Right Speech. The truth must be presented in ways that others can accept. Words that damage or destroy are not Right Speech. Before you speak, understand the person you are speaking to. Consider each word carefully before you say…

Clear Mind ~ Shunryu Suzuki http://justdharma.com/s/15nrn Our understanding of Buddhism should not be just gathering many pieces of information, seeking to gain knowledge. Instead of gathering knowledge, you should clear your mind. If your mind is clear, true knowledge is already yours.

Song of Zazen ~ Hakuin http://justdharma.com/s/vslbu All beings by nature are Buddha, As ice by nature is water. Apart from water there is no ice; Apart from beings, no Buddha. How sad that people ignore the near And search for truth afar: Like someone in the midst of water Crying out in thirst, Like a child of a wealthy home Wandering among the poor. Lost on dark paths of ignorance, We wander through the Six Worlds, From dark path to dark path-- When shall we be freed from…
