Gandhia.. (vaihteeks)Perjantai 16.12.2005 13:20

"As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world -- that is the myth of the 'atomic age' -- as in being able to remake ourselves"

hindu peace prayerTorstai 15.12.2005 21:09

I desire neither earthly kingdom,
nor even freedom from birth and death.
I desire only the deliverance from grief
of all those afflicted by misery.
Oh Lord, lead us from the unreal to the real;
from darkness to light;
from death to immortality.
May there be peace in celestial regions.
May there be peace on earth.
May the waters be appeasing.
May herbs be wholesome and
may trees and plants bring peace to all.
May all beneficent beings bring peace to us.
May thy wisdom spread peace all through the world.
May all things be a source of peace to all and to me.
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.

~Mahatma Gandhi~

rigpa glimpse of the day 26.11Maanantai 12.12.2005 04:01

Confined in the dark, narrow cage of our own making that we take for the whole universe, very few of us can even begin to imagine another dimension of mind. Patrul Rinpoche tells the story of an old frog who had lived all his life in a dank well. One day a frog from the sea paid him a visit.

“Where do you come from?” asked the frog in the well.
“From the great ocean,” he replied.
“How big is your ocean?”
“It’s gigantic.”
“You mean about a quarter of the size of my well here?”
“Bigger? You mean half as big?”
“No, even bigger.”
“Is it . . . as big as this well?”
“There’s no comparison.”
“That’s impossible! I’ve got to see this for myself.”

They set off together. When the frog from the well saw the ocean, it was such a shock that his head just exploded into pieces.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry - Olla ihminen..Maanantai 12.12.2005 03:49

Olla ihminen, se on: tuntea vastuuta.
Se on syyllisyyden tuntoa kurjuudesta,
johon ei oikeastaan ole syypää.
Se on ylpeyttä voitosta,
jonka toverit ovat saavuttaneet.
Se on: tuntea olevansa osallisena
koko maailman rakennuksessa
oman kiven siihen pannessaan.

For I can see that,
in the midst of darkness
light persists,
in the midst of untruth
truth persists,
on the midst of death
life persists.

"Sir Thomas More, I heard, wrote these words just before his beheading: “We are all in the same cart, going to execution; how can I hate anyone or wish anyone harm?” To feel the full force of your mortality, and to open your heart entirely to it, is to allow to grow in you that all-encompassing, fearless compassion that fuels the lives of all those who wish truly to be of help to others."

Anteeksiannosta.. by Amma :)Tiistai 01.11.2005 02:08


"Suppose you accidentally poke your eye with one of your hands. Your other hand doesn't slap the hand that hurt the eye. You simply forgive your hand. Similar should be the attitude if others hurt you. Returning anger with anger is like poking a wound; forgiveness is like applying medicine."

"When you accidentally stumble against something, your foot is hurt. Sometimes you accidentally cut you hands. But you don't get angry towards your hands and legs, because they are parts of your own body. Look upon others as being parts of yourselves. Then you will forgive those who do harm to you."

..Amman sanomaa:Sunnuntai 30.10.2005 01:57

"When we dedicate ourselves solely to the well being of others, it is our own mind that becomes pure. When you give your friend a bouquet of flowers, you are the one who experiences the gratification of giving. You are the first one to enjoy the beauty and fragrance of the flowers. In the same way, you can derive happiness from selfless acts."

"Religions are different roads converging upon the same point. What does it matter that we take different roads, so long as we reach the same goal."

-Mahatma Gandhi

As Buddha said: “What you are is what you have been, what you will be is what you do now.”

Padmasambhava went further: “If you want to know your past life, look into your present condition; if you want to know your future life, look at your present actions.”
