Short Dharma Insights for Your Daily Practice and Inspiration
"When understood, the Buddha’s universe..is anything but alien and inhibiting. It is a world full of hope, where everything we need to do can be done and everything that matters is within human reach. It is a world where kindness, unselfishness, non-violence, and compassion achieve what self-interest and arrogance cannot. It is a world where any human can be happy in goodness and the fullness of giving." ❦ Eknath Easwara

"Block things out, you may get hit by a car!"
“Something contacts the senses; like or dislike arises; and right there is delusion. Yet with mindfulness, wisdom can arise in this same experience...Do not fear places where many things contact the senses, if you must be there. Saying a mantra every second to block things out, you may get hit by a car. Just be mindful and do not be fooled.”
