TH HUXLEY –”The known is finite, the unknown infinite; intellectually we stand on an islet in the midst of an illimitable ocean of inexplicability. Our business in every generation is to reclaim a little more land.”

THE ART OF HAPPINESS –”The Dalai Lama replied: I think there are two kinds of desire. Certain desires are positive. A desire for happiness. It’s absolutely right. The desire for peace… But at some point, desires can become unreasonable. That usually leads to trouble… Self-satisfaction alone cannot determine if a desire or action is positive or negative… I think excessive desire leads to greed… When you reflect upon the excesses of greed, you’ll find that it leads an individual to a feeling of frustration, disappointment, a lot of confusion, and a lot of problems… Although the underlying motive is to seek satisfaction, the irony is that even after obtaining the object of your desire, you are still not satisfied. The true antidote of greed is contentment.”

THE ARTHASHASTRA –”It is difficult, though not impossible; to stop government officials from hiding their corrupt take.”

THE BEATLES –”And when the brokenhearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer, let it be.

THE COLUMBIA ENCYCLOPEDIA –”According to Shankara, the ultimate reality is Brahman or the Self, which is pure reality, pure consciousness, and pure bliss. The world has come into be ing from Brahman and is wholly dependent on it. The criteria of reality are immutability and permanence. Since the world is constantly changing, and since its existence is not absolute but dependent on Brahman, the world is called illusion or maya. Brahman exists as the Absolute, without qualities (nirguna), and also exists with qualities (saguna) as a personal god, Ishvara, who presides over the world of appearance.”

THE ECONOMIST –”Confronted by Asia’s technological rise and the financial crisis, corporate America is losing its self-confidence. It should not.”

THE ECONOMIST –”Modest proposals are better than grand designs: They serve the political function of registering concerns, but are too small to provoke opposition.”

THE MOTHER, PONDICHERRY –”Never grumble. All sorts of forces enter you when you grumble and they pull you down. We find in others what is in us… If we always find mud around us, it proves that there is mud somewhere in us.”

THE MYSTERY PLAY –”God is in the details, after all. Or… perhaps, the details are in God.”

THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY –”A work in progress, the Earth still shakes with the forces of creation. Earthquakes occur when shifting pieces of the surface overcome friction at their edges and cause the ground to shudder — with sometimes disastrous results.”

THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY –”Seen from the safe distance of a satellite, it can be a thrilling spectacle. But as anyone caught in the middle of a hurricane knows, the place that poets call Mother Earth is not always such a gentle parent. Extreme weather events… are expressions of a living planet, still changing after billions of years of existence.”

THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY –”When they occur at sea, earthquakes can generate seismic waves called tsunamis, which travel great distances at speeds equalling those of commercial jetliners. Tsunamis are barely noticeable —often just ripples on the surface — until they approach shores, when they become monsters.”

THE PERFECTION OF WISDOM –”When a ship is wrecked at sea, those who do not hold onto a timber, a plank, or other solid support will drown in the water, never reaching the shore. Subhuti, those that do hold onto a timber, or plank, or other solid support will not drown in the water Happily unhindered, they may reach the shore, where they will stand safe and sound on firm ground. Similarly, Subhuti, a bodhisattva who is endowed with a full measure of faith and purity, of kindness and intentions, but without taking hold of the perfection of wisdom, can fall along the way Not reaching all-embracing knowledge, he remains only a disciple, or a pratyekabuddha.”

THE PHILOSOPHY OF PLOTINUS –”A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, but he cannot sit on it.”

THE QUOTE GARDEN –”You cannot discover the purpose of life by asking someone else – the only way you’ll ever get the right answer is by asking yourself.”

THE XIV DALAI LAMA –”We cannot learn real patience and tolerance from a guru or a friend. They can be practiced only when we come in contact with someone who creates unpleasant experiences. According to Shantideva, enemies are really good for us as we can learn a lot from them and build our inner strength.”

THE XTV DALAI LAMA –”Disregard for our natural inheritance has brought about the danger that now threatens the peace of the world…. Such destruction of the environment and life depending upon it is a result of, ignorance, greed and disregard for the richness of all living things. This disregard is gaming great influence. If peace does not become a reality in the world and if the destruction of the environment continues as it does today, there is no doubt that future generations will inherit a dead world.”

THEODORE ROOSEVELT –”Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike.”

THEODORE ROOSEVELT –”In doing your work in the great world, it is a safe plan to follow a rule I once heard on the football field: Don’t flinch, don’t fall; hit the line hard.”

THEODORE ROOSEVELT –”It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows I achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

THICH NHAT HANH –‘Walking meditation is like eating. With each step, we nourish our body and our spirit. When we walk with anxiety and sorrow, it is a kind of junk food. The food of walking meditation should be of a higher quality. Just walk slowly and enjoy a banquet of peace.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”After you wake up, you probably open the curtains and look outside. You may even like to open the window and feel the cool morning air with the dew still on the grass. But is what you see really “outside”? In fact, it is your own mind. As the sun sends its rays I through the window, you are not just yourself. You are also the beautiful view from your window. You are the Dharmakaya.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”All of us have the power to change the situation if we care to practice mindful walking, mindful! breathing to encourage the energy of mindful- I ness and to practise looking deeply to understand. Because understanding when it comes, will liberate us. It will help us to get rid of our anger, our hate and so on. And love is something that can only be born on the ground of understanding. Prajna and karuna are words that point to the same reality Where there is understanding, prajna, there is love. Where there is true love, maitri and karuna, there already exists prajna. Where there is no understanding, there is no true love.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”All phenomena — the song of a bird, the warm rays of the sun, a cup of hot tea — are manifes- tations of the Dharmakaya. We, too, are of the same nature as these wonders of the universe.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”Dharmakaya literally means the’body’or kaya of the Buddha’s teachings and Dharma), the way of understanding and love. Before passing away, the Buddha told his disciples, “Only my physical body will pass away.

THICH NHAT HANH –”Happiness is only possible with true love. True love has the power to heal and transform the situation around us and bring a deep meaning to our lives.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”If you look deeply into impermanence, you will do your best to make her happy right now. Aware of impermanence, you become positive, loving and wise. Impermanence is good news. Without impermanence, nothing would be possible. With impermanence, every door is open for change. Impermanence is an instrument for our liberation.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”If you suffer, it is not because things are impermanent. It is because! you believe things are I permanent. When a flower dies, you don’t suffer much, because you understand that flowers are impermanent. But you cannot accept the impermanence of your beloved one, and you suffer deeply when she passes away.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos the trees, the clouds, everything.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”Meditation is not to escape from society, but to come back to ourselves and see what is going on.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”Nothing remains the same for two consecutive moments. The Buddha implored us not just to talk about impermanence, but to use it as an instrument to help us penetrate deeply into reality and obtain liberating insight. We may be tempted to say that because things are impermanent, there is suffering. But the Buddha encouraged us to look again. Without impermanence, life is not possible. How can we transform our suffering if things are not impermanent? How can the situation in the world improve? We need impermanence foil social justice and for hope.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”Opening the window, I look out onto the Dharmakaya. How wondrous is life! Attentive to each moment, my mind is clear like a calm river.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong…Why not try arid see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?”

THICH NHAT HANH –”People today tend to take refuge in overwork so they can avoid confronting their inner turmoil.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But i think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognise: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the .black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”That path is you. That is why it will never tire of waiting Whether it is covered with red dust, autumn leaves, or icy snow, come back to the path. You will be like the tree of life. Your leaves, trunk, branches, and the blossoms of your soul will be fresh and beautiful, once you enter the practice of Earth Touching.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”The empty path welcomes you, fragrant with grass and little flowers. Walk leisurely, peacefully. Your feet touch the earth deeply. Don’t let your thoughts carry you away. Come back to the path every moment.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”The practice of peace and reconciliation is one of the most vital and artistic of human actions.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”Water flows from high in the mountains Water runs deep in the Earth Miraculously, water comes to us, And sustains all life.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”When we come into contact with the other person, our thoughts an actions should express our mind of compassion even if that person says and does things that are not easy to accept. We practice in this way until we see clearly that our love is not contingent upon the other person being lovable.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”When we open the window and look out onto the Dharmakaya, we see that life is infinitely marvellous. At that very moment, we can vow to be awake all day long, realising joy, peace, freedom and harmony throughout our lives. When we do this, our mind becomes clear like a calm river.”

THICH NHAT HANH –”You are me, and I am you. Isn’t it obviousthat we “inter-are”? You cultivatethe flower in yourself, so that i will be beautiful. I transform the garbage in myself, so that you willnot have to suffer I support you; you support me. I am in this world to offer you peace; you are in this world to bring me joy.”

THICH NHAT HANT –‘It is not by going out for a demonstration against nuclear missiles … but with our capacity of being peace that we can make peace.”
