Buddha is the only prophet who said, “I do not care to know your various theories about God. What is the use of discussing all the subtle doctrines about the soul? Do good and be good.” ~ Swami Vivekananda ..

“There is no one in the universe more dear to us than ourselves. The mind may travel in a thousand directions, but it will find no one else more beloved. The moment you see how important it is to love yourself, you will stop making others suffer.” ~ Buddha

“We who look at the whole and not just the part, know that we too are systems of interdependence, of feelings, perceptions, thoughts, and consciousness all interconnected. Investigating in this way, we come to realize that there is no me or mine in any one part, just as a sound does not belong to any one part of the lute.” ~ Buddha

“If you know the psychological nature of your own mind, depression is spontaneously dispelled; instead of being enemies and strangers, all living beings become your friends. The narrow mind rejects; wisdom accepts. Check your own mind to see whether or not this is true.” ~ Buddha

Enlightenment is ego’s ultimate disappointment. ~ Buddha

“Anger, if not restrained, is frequently more hurtful to us than the injury that provokes it.” ~Buddha

“Be a lamp onto yourself, make of yourself a light.” —Buddha

“The Self is not seen, for it has no visible form. Yet, when the mind becomes clear, and the heart becomes pure, then the Self can be known.… And those who know it enjoy Eternity.” ~Buddha

“Neither in the sky nor in mid-ocean, nor by entering into mountain clefts, nowhere in the world is there a place where one may escape from the results of evil deeds.” ~ The Buddha

“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.” ~Buddha

“That inner Self, as the primordial spirit, eternal, ever bright, full and infinite bliss, single, indivisible, whole and living, shines in everyone as the Witnessing Awareness. That Self in its splendour, shining in the cavity of the Heart as the subtle, pervasive yet unmanifest ether, illumines this universe like the sun.” ~Buddha

“Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don’t know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever… I call it the golden eternity. It is perfect. We were never really born, we will never really die.” ~Buddha

“He who would know the secret of both worlds will find that the secret of them both is Love.”  ~Buddha

“If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something – and it is only such love that can know freedom.” ~Buddha
