“If you are unable to find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?”
Dogen


The higher nature in man always seeks for something which transcends itself and yet is its deepest truth; which claims all its sacrifice, yet makes this sacrifice its own recompense. This is man's dharma, man's religion, and man's self is the vessel.
Rabindranath Tagore


Dharma is not upheld by talking about it. Dharma is upheld by living in harmony with it.
Gautama Buddha


If it isn't good, let it die. If it doesn't die, make it good.
Ajahn Chah


The Dharma is the truth that all natures are pure.
Bodhidharma

To go from mortal to Buddha, you have to put an end to karma, nurture your awareness, and accept what life brings.
Bodhidharma


Dharma is not about credentials. It's not about how many practices you've done, or how peaceful you can make your mind. It's not about being in a community where you feel safe or enjoying the cachet of being a 'Buddhist.' It's not even about accumulating teachings, empowerments, or 'spiritual accomplishments.' It's about how naked you're willing to be with your own life, and how much you're willing to let go of your masks and your armor and live as a completely exposed, undefended, and open human person.
Reginald Ray


Let our lives be firmly rooted in Truth. Abstain from lies. In this dark age of materialism, adherence to truth is the greatest austerity. We might have to tell lies now and then to protect somebody or to sustain dharma, but we must be careful not to speak lies for our own selfish purposes.
Mata Amritanandamayi


But deluded people don't realize that their own mind is the Buddha. They keep searching outside.
Bodhidharma


If you let go completely you will have complete peace.
Ajahn Chah


The ignorant mind, with its infinite afflictions, passions, and evils, is rooted in the three poisons. Greed, anger, and delusion.
Bodhidharma


The dharma is here. And the dharma is in your heart. Where else would it be?
Tenzin Palmo


Each step may seem to take forever, but no matter how uninspired you feel, continue to follow your practice schedule precisely and consistently. This is how we can use our greatest enemy, habit, against itself.
Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche


According to this law [the law of Dharma], you have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it. There is something that you can do better than anyone else in the whole world--and for every unique talent and unique expression of that talent, there are also unique needs. When these needs are matched with the creative expression of your talent, that is the spark that creates affluence. Expressing your talents to fulfill needs creates unlimited wealth and abundance.
Deepak Chopra


When you are following dharma, you will be happy, at peace, still inside. There will be a sense of purpose to your life. Difficulties will not seem unconquerable.
Frederick Lenz

The masters only point the way. But if you meditate And follow the dharma You will free yourself from desire. 'Everything arises and passes away.' When you see this, you are above sorrow. This is the shining way.
Gautama Buddha

Frederick Lenz


Dharma is that which is enjoined by the holy books, followed by the sages, interpreted by the learned and which appeals to the heart.
Mahatma Gandhi


To see nothing is to perceive the Way, and to understand nothing is to know the Dharma, because seeing is neither seeing nor not seeing, and because understanding is neither understanding nor not understanding.
Bodhidharma


The Dharma is a very, very special and precious thing. The more you practice it, the more you will realize this.
Tenzin Palmo


They are not following dharma who resort to violence to achieve their purpose. But those who lead others through nonviolent means, knowing right and wrong, may be called guardians of the dharma. Those who really seek the path to Enlightenment dictate terms to their mind. Then they proceed with strong determination.
Gautama Buddha


No true Dharma Master behaves with rage, hate, ranting, self- importance. These are signs of mental instability, a character flaw. Never follow such a one as that.

By the dharma is meant the heart, for there is no dharma apart from the heart.

Shinjo Ito


To find a Buddha all you have to do is see your nature.
Bodhidharma


The individuation of dharma practice occurs whenever priority is given to the resolution of a personal existential dilemma over the need to conform to the doctrines of a Buddhist orthodoxy. Individuation is a process of recovering personal authority through freeing ourselves from the constraints of collectively held belief systems.
Stephen Batchelor

Jenna Elfman


My first encounter with Buddhist dharma would be in my early 20s. Like most young men, I was not particularly happy.

Have your life properly aligned with dharma. The technicalities of the movement of the kundalini are easy to master. Dharma is much more complex.
Frederick Lenz


If you're meeting with the dharma, you have probably been a human being before.
Tenzin Palmo


When we shout at the oak tree, the oak tree is not offended. When we praise the oak tree, it doesn't raise its nose. We can learn the Dharma from the oak tree; therefore, the oak tree is part of our Dharmakaya. We can learn from everything that is around, that is in us.
Nhat Hanh


A monk is holy and great until he starts teaching you the real Dharma
