"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

Practice is just “suchness” - always right here, right now

"We need to realize that practice is not being or nonbeing, not form or emptiness: it is just practice. 'Just practice' is suchness. It is this very moment, transcending all dualities. 'Just practice' contains no past and no future. It is always right here, right now."
