Buddha’s Wisdom

 

  • Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.

  • Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.

  • 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.

  •  It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

  • Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, 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.

  • Virtue is persecuted more by the wicked than it is loved by the good.

  • The mind is everything. What you think you become.

  • The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.

     

  • There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.

  • 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.

  • Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.

  • 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.

  • To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s ownin the midst of abundance.

  • We are what we think.

  • All that we are arises with our thoughts.

  • With our thoughts, we make the world.

  7. Thanks for your comment penpusherpen. Always good to hear from you.
    I understand. I really do understand. Life is always testing us. However, much potential growth is available in these tests; just as in any classroom.
    Concerning ‘pitfalls’ and ‘frailties’; ever hear the expression “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”? I use it often.
    The ‘easy road’ may be easy today. But in time you will have to make up the difference.

  8. Stare prawdy-pytanie brzmi czy my ludzie o tych strych prawdach pamiętamy i czy chcemy tak żyć.Piękny wpis….

  9. The Wisdom of Buddha is set down for all to see, in truth and understanding, in that virtue brings it’s own reward, but sometimes we all fall short in how we feel to be our ‘ideal’, we fall short of trying to live as perfect a life as we should. This modern life brings so many pitfalls I wonder about human frailties and how this affects the spirit within. So much temptation to take the easy road of smooth tarmac and not walk the difficult path strewn with testing grit and pebbles. I try, I do try…Eddie, thank you for sharing Buddha’s Wisdom. xPenx
