Buddhism Regional Message Board

Just as a solid rock is not shaken by the storm, even so the wise are not affected by praise or blame.

~ The Dhammapada, Chapter 6, The Wise Man

"The disposition is empty of the adventitious stains,
Which are characterized by their total separateness.
But it is not empty of the unsurpassed qualities,
Which have the character of total inseparability."

- Maitreya, Uttaratantra Shastra, I, 155

Cool, I may see you soon.

In whom there is no sympathy for living beings: know him as an outcast.

The Buddha, Suppa Nipata

This is truth that cannot be doubted.
Say it so:

gone over,
gone fully over.
So be it!

-from, The Heart Sutra

Flow with whatever may happen and let your mind be free. Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.

Gate Gate Paragate
Parasamgate Bodhi Soha

Heal those stricken with virus.
Om Mani Padme Hum...

May the many sentient beings
who are sick,
quickly be freed from sickness.
And may all the sicknesses of beings
Never arise again.

~ The Medicine Buddha Mantra
