Our Mind is formed by our Thoughts

All that we are is a result of what we have thought;

it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts.

If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him,

like a shadow that never leaves him. ~ The Dhammapada, verse 2.

Affection

We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection. ~ His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama

Be a better whatever you ..

Don’t try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are. ~ His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama

Human nature is essentially compassionate and gentle

It is my firm conviction that human nature is essentially compassionate and gentle.That is the predominant feature of human nature.

Anger, violence, and aggression may arise, but on a secondary or more superficial level; in a sense, they arise when we are frustrated in our efforts to achieve love and affection. They are not part of our most basic, underlying nature. ~ His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama

Tashi Delek!

Whether you celebrate Christmas,  Kwanzaa,  Hanukkah, Winter Solstice or another day that is special to you during this time of the year…I pray this for all of us…

May all sentient beings be happy and have the causes of happiness.

May all sentient beings be free from suffering and the causes if suffering.

May all sentient beings never be separated from the happiness that is free from suffering.

May all sentient beings abide in equanimity, free attachment and detachment.
