Archives on Buddhist Quotes Introduction and links to related topics Einstein and Buddha Parallell Quotations EINSTEIN: According to general relativity, the concept of space detached from an y physical content does not exist. BUDDHA: If there is only empty space, with no suns nor planets in it, then space loses its substantiality. Einstein and Buddha Parallell Quotations EINSTEIN: Physical concepts are free creations of the human mind, and are not, h owever it may seem, uniquely determined by the external world. BUDDHA: All such notions as causation, succession, atoms, primary elements...are all figments of the imagination and manifestations of the mind. Einstein and Buddha Parallell Quotations EINSTEIN: Time and again the passion for understanding has led to the illusion t hat man is able to comprehend the objective world rationally by pure thought wit hout any empirical foundations in short, by metaphysics. BUDDHA: By becoming attached to names and forms, not realising that they have no more basis than the activities of the mind itself, error rises and the way to e mancipation is blocked. Einstein and Buddha Parallell Quotations EINSTEIN: In our thinking...we attribute to this concept of the bodily object a significance, which is to high degree independent of the sense impression which originally gives rise to it. This is what we mean when we attribute to the bodil y object "a real existence." ...By means of such concepts and mental relations b etween them, we are able to orient ourselves in the labyrinth of sense impressio ns. These notions and relations...appear to us as stronger and more unalterable than the individual sense experience itself, the character of which as anything other than the result of an illusion or hallucination is never completely guaran teed. BUDDHA: I teach that the multitudinousness of objects have no reality in themsel ves but are only seen of the mind and, therefore, are of the nature of maya and a dream. ...It is true that in one sense they are seen and discriminated by the senses as individualized objects; but in another sense, because of the absence o f any characteristic marks of self-nature, they are not seen but are only imagin ed. In one sense they are graspable, but in another sense, they are not graspabl e. Einstein and Buddha Parallell Quotations EINSTEIN: The belief in an external world independent of the perceiving subject is the basis of all natural science. Since, however, sense perception only gives information of this external world or of "physical reality" indirectly, we can only grasp the latter by speculative means. It follows from this that our notion s of physical reality can never be final. We must always be ready to change thes e notions that is to say, the axiomatic basis of physics in order to do justice to perceived facts in the most perfect way logically.

BUDDHA: While the Tathagata, in his teaching, constantly makes use of conception s and ideas about them, disciples should keep in mind the unreality of all such conceptions and ideas. They should recall that the Tathagata, in making use of t hem in explaining the Dharma always uses them in the semblance of a raft that is of use only to cross a river. As the raft is of no further use after the river is crossed, it should be discarded. So these arbitrary conceptions of things and about things should be wholly given up as one attains enlightenment.

Buddha Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others. Buddha I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done. Buddha The mind is everything. What you think you become. Buddha No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path. Buddha

However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them? Buddha In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true. Buddha Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it a t someone else; you are the one who gets burned. Buddha It is better to travel well than to arrive. Buddha It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways. Buddha Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace. Buddha Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual l ife. Buddha You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger. Buddha I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act. Buddha Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth. Buddha Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. Buddha Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the ca ndle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. Buddha A jug fills drop by drop. Buddha To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to k eep our mind strong and clear.

Buddha The virtues, like the Muses, are always seen in groups. A good principle was nev er found solitary in any breast. Buddha You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be f ound anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve y our love and affection. Buddha To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent. Buddha An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beas t may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind. Buddha It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victor y is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or h ell. Buddha Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely. Buddha The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed. Buddha What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world , where each person is clinging to his piece of debris? What's the proper saluta tion between people as they pass each other in this flood? Buddha Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deed s, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. Buddha We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, j oy follows like a shadow that never leaves. Buddha The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart. Buddha

What we think, we become. Buddha The wise ones fashioned speech with their thought, sifting it as grain is sifted through a sieve. Buddha Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering - a n image of death. Buddha Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace. Buddha Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on th e present moment. Buddha We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thought s, we make the world. Buddha There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it. Buddha To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will n aturally come to him. Buddha In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for t he truth, and have begun striving for ourselves. Buddha Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the b est relationship. Buddha Virtue is persecuted more by the wicked than it is loved by the good. Buddha Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence. Buddha The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground.

Buddha You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. Buddha The tongue like a sharp knife... Kills without drawing blood. Buddha There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting. Buddha When one has the feeling of dislike for evil, when one feels tranquil, one finds pleasure in listening to good teachings; when one has these feelings and apprec iates them, one is free of fear. Buddha All wrong-doing arises because of mind. If mind is transformed can wrong-doing r emain? Buddha To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance. Buddha There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills. Buddha Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill. Buddha The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows. Buddha He who loves 50 people has 50 woes; he who loves no one has no woes. Buddha Unity can only be manifested by the Binary. Unity itself and the idea of Unity a re already two. Buddha Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others do es not obtain peace of mind. Buddha

Fill your mind with compassion. Buddha On life's journey Faith is nourishment, Virtuous deeds are a shelter, Wisdom is the light by day and Right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life nothing can destroy him; If he has conquered greed nothing can limit his freedom. Buddha Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. Buddha We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world. Buddhist Quote One of his students asked Buddha, "Are you the messiah?" "No", answered Buddha. "Then are you a healer?" "No", Buddha replied. "Then are you a teacher?" the student persisted. "No, I am not a teacher." "Then what are you?" asked the student, exasperated. "I am awake", Buddha replied. Dalai Lama As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery. We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as

anger and attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness. Dalai Lama The whole purpose of religion is to facilitate love and compassion, patience, tolerance, humility, forgiveness. Joseph Goldstein, The Experience of Insight As the Buddha was dying, Ananda asked who would be their teacher after death. He replied to his disciple "Be lamps unto yourselves. Be refuges unto yourselves. Take yourself no external refuge. Hold fast to the truth as a lamp. Hold fast to the truth as a refuge. Look not for a refuge in anyone besides yourselves. And those, Ananda, who either now or after I am dead, Shall be a lamp unto themselves, Shall betake themselves as no external refuge, But holding fast to the truth as their lamp, Holding fast to the truth as their refuge, Shall not look for refuge to anyone else besides themselves, It is they who shall reach to the very topmost height; But they must be anxious to learn." The Four Reliances, Traditional Buddhist teaching First, rely on the spirit and meaning of the teachings, not on the words; Second, rely on the teachings,

not on the personality of the teacher; Third, rely on real wisdom, not superficial interpretation; And fourth, rely on the essence of your pure Wisdom Mind, not on judgmental perceptions. from One Minute Wisdom by Anthony DeMello The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of Lao-tzu's dictum: "Those who know, do not say; Those who say, do not know." When the master entered, they asked him what the words meant. Said the master, "Which of you knows the fragrance of a rose?" All of them indicated that they knew. Then he said, "Put it into words." All of them were silent. from the Dhammapada, Words of the Buddha There is no fire like greed, No crime like hatred, No sorrow like separation, No sickness like hunger of heart, And no joy like the joy of freedom. Health, contentment and trust Are your greatest possessions, And freedom your greatest joy. Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment, Know the sweet joy of living in the way. Siddh rtha Gautama " "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense."

Allan Lokos, Patience: The Art of Peaceful Living "That's why it's called a practice. We have to practice a practice if it is to b e of value." Swami Satchidananda, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali "The five points of yama, together with the five points of niyama, remind us of the Ten Commandments of the Christtian and Jewish faiths, as well as of the ten virtues of Buddhism. In fact, there is no religion without these moral or ethica l codes. All spiritual life should be based on these things. They are the founda tion stones without which we can never build anything lasting. (127)" Aberjhani, The River of Winged Dreams " "An outrageous instinct to love and be loved blinded your arms to lines of pro priety Women and Men, Christians and Jews, Muslims and Buddhists, white, black, red, br own. An outrageous instinct to love and be loved executed your brain every hour on the hour." Mircea Eliade, Yoga: Immortality and Freedom "States of consciousness" are only products of prakriti and can have no kind of relation with Spirit the latter, by its very essence, being above all experience . However and for SamPhya and Yoga this is the key to the paradoxical situation the most subtle, most transparent part of mental life, that is, intelligence (bu ddhi) in its mode of pure luminosity (sattva), has a specific quality that of re flecting Spirit. Comprehension of the external world is possible only by virtue of this reflection of purusha in intelligence. But the Self is not corrupted by this reflection and does not lose its ontological modalities (impassibility, ete rnity, etc.). The Yoga-sutras (II, 20) say in substance: seeing (drashtri; i.e., purusha) is absolute consciousness ("sight par excellence") and, while remainin g pure, it knows cognitions (it "looks at the ideas that are presented to it"). Vyasa interprets: Spirit is reflected in intelligence (buddhi), but is neither l ike it nor different from it. It is not like intelligence because intelligence i s modified by knowledge of objects, which knowledge is ever-changing whereas pur usha commands uninterrupted knowledge, in some sort it is knowledge. On the othe r hand, purusha is not completely different from buddhi, for, although it is pur e, it knows knowledge. Patanjali employs a different image to define the relatio nship between Spirit and intelligence: just as a flower is reflected in a crysta l, intelligence reflects purusha. But only ignorance can attribute to the crysta l the qualities of the flower (form, dimensions, colors). When the object (the f lower) moves, its image moves in the crystal, though the latter remains motionle ss. It is an illusion to believe that Spirit is dynamic because mental experienc e is so. In reality, there is here only an illusory relation (upadhi) owing to a "sympathetic correspondence" (yogyata) between the Self and intelligence." Dalai Lama XIV, How to Practice : The Way to a Meaningful Life "True change is within; leave the outside as it is." Koren Zailckas, Fury: A Memoir "There's a limit to my patience with anything that smacks of metaphysics. I squi rm at the mention of "mind expansion" or "warm healing energy." I don't like dru m circles, public nudity or strangers touching my feet." Allan Lokos, Patience: The Art of Peaceful Living "So what is a good meditator? A good meditator meditates."

Donna Quesada, The Buddha in the Classroom: Zen Wisdom to Inspire Teachers "When you blame, you open up a world of excuses, because as long as you're looki ng outside, you miss the opportunity to look inside, and you continue to suffer. " Anne Cushman "As I explore the wilderness of my own body, I see that I am made of blood and b ones, sunlight and water, pesticide residues and redwood humus, the fears and dr eams of generations of ancestors, particles of exploded stars." Tara Brach, Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life With the Heart of a Buddha "Pain is not wrong. Reacting to pain as wrong initiates the trance of unworthine ss. The moment we believe something is wrong, our world shrinks and we lose ours elves in the effort to combat the pain." Mike Norton "War can condition a person to be resilient, tolerant, dependable, strong, and c apable of so much more than one who had experienced nothing of it; it can bring out the very best in us, but also the very worst. Where is it, I ask, the proper conduit through which a soldier should be raised from whence they would become an upstanding citizen of the world, instead of a single country?" Mahatma Gandhi "Yes I am, I am also a Muslim, a Christian, a Buddhist, and a Jew." Donna Quesada, The Buddha in the Classroom: Zen Wisdom to Inspire Teachers "When you catch yourself slipping into a pool of negativity, notice how it deriv es from nothing other than resistance to the current situation." Donna Quesada, The Buddha in the Classroom: Zen Wisdom to Inspire Teachers "Courage is often associated with aggression, but instead should be seen as a wi llingness to act from the heart." Anonymous, Buddhist Scriptures "Krishna taught in the Bhadavad Gita: 'karmanyeva-adhikaraste ma phalesu kadacha na's, which means, 'Be active, never be inactive, and don'st react to the outcom e of the work." * Attachment Is ...
