Life is precious ~ Tsoknyi Rinpoche http://justdharma.com/s/20k3z  As a father myself, I am a bit sensitive to the needs of children, to their fears and nightmares, their longings, the pressures that their friends and the cultures within which they are raised exert upon them. After my daughters were born, each time I held their small bodies in my arms - listening to their breath, watching their eyes move back and forth, seeing them smile - I was reminded of one of the most basic of the…

When you find a spiritual master ~ Gampopa http://justdharma.com/s/dgne2  When you find a spiritual master, then attend him properly without allowing your own arrogance and ego to interfere.

Objects of distraction ~ 17th Karmapa http://justdharma.com/s/6z9ar  Living in the present world of technology, illusions have become amplified and multiplied. In the present world that we live in, the causes for all kinds of thoughts, confusions and illusions of reality have increased many times over.

Just sit ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/d00qe  I feel that it is absolutely important to make the practice of meditation your source of strength, your source of basic intelligence. Please think about that. You could sit down and do nothing, just sit and do nothing. Stop acting, stop speeding. Sit and do nothing. You should take pride in the fact that you have learned a very valuable message: you actually can survive beautifully by doing nothing.  – Chögyam Trungpa  from the book…

Sanity on the spot ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/1em6p  A story is told about Ananda, the Buddha's personal attendant, who had the desire to engage in a long period of fasting. He began to grow feeble and weak; he couldn't sit and meditate, so finally the Buddha told him, "Ananda, if there is no food, there is no body. If there is no body, there is no dharma. If there is no dharma, there is no enlightenment. Therefore go back and eat." That is the basic logic of the Buddhist…

Our child Buddha ~ 17th Karmapa http://justdharma.com/s/7bxai  We tend to think of the Buddha as someone with great powers – a kind of Superman with superpowers who will come to protect us and save us when something terrible happens. But who is the real superhero? You are. Superman is not the Buddha. You are. Who is your protector? You are. What is your greatest power? It is the power of your noble motivations. Karmic cause and effect teaches us that each one of us is a person with…

You’re always in the middle of the universe ~ Pema Chödron http://justdharma.com/s/gqbwd  People often say, ‘Meditation is all very well, but what does it have to do with my life?’ What it has to do with your life is that perhaps through this simple practice of paying attention – giving loving-kindness to your speech and your actions and the movements of your mind – you begin to realize that you’re always standing in the middle of a sacred circle, and that’s your whole life. This room is not…

The Song of the Twelve Deceptions ~ Milarepa http://justdharma.com/s/jec63  Worldly affairs are all deceptive;  So I seek the truth Divine.    Excitements and distractions are illusions;  So I meditate on the non-dual Truth.    Companions and servants are deceptive;  So I remain in solitude.    Money and possessions are also deceptive;  So if I have them, I give them away.    Things in the outer world are all illusion;  The Inner Mind is that which I observe.    Wandering thoughts are all…
