Buddist teachings that you might not of heard

2 posts in this topic

He who lives looking for pleasures only, his senses uncontrolled,

immoderate in his food, idle, and weak, Mara (the tempter) will

certainly overthrow him, as the wind throws down a weak tree.

He who wishes to put on the yellow dress without having cleansed himself from sin, who disregards temperance and truth, is unworthy of the yellow dress.

As rain breaks through an ill-thatched house, passion will break through an unreflecting mind.

The evil-doer suffers in this world, and he suffers in the next; he

suffers in both. He suffers when he thinks of the evil he has done; he

suffers more when going on the evil path.

Earnestness is the path of immortality (Nirvana), thoughtlessness

the path of death. Those who are in earnest do not die, those who are

thoughtless are as if dead already.

When the learned man drives away vanity by earnestness, he, the

wise, climbing the terraced heights of wisdom, looks down upon the

fools, serene he looks upon the toiling crowd, as one that stands on a

mountain looks down upon them that stand upon the plain.
