Cute Tibetan guy meditating
"Whether we sit with our arms folded this way and our legs crossed that way is of little consequence. But it is extremely important to check and see if whatever meditation we do is an actual remedy for our suffering."
"We are not compelled to meditate by some outside agent, by other people, or by God. Rather, just as we are responsible for our own suffering, so are we solely responsible for our own cure. We have created the situation in which we find ourselves, and it is up to us to create the circumstances for our release."
"Meditation is not spacing-out or runnng away. In fact, it is being totally honest with ourselves: taking a good look at what we are and working with that in order to become more positive and useful, to ourselves and others."
Ven. Sangye Khadro
"The present moment is the only aperture through which the soul can pass out of time into eternity, through which grace can pass out of eternity into the soul, and through which love can pass from one soul in time to another soul in time."
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
"There are so many practices you can do - what's the most important? What's the most important thing to practise in life? Meditation. What's the most important meditation, the most important Dharma practice? I would say that it's the good heart, your very precious thought of loving kindness, compassion; the thought of benefiting others, bodhicitta. That is the best meditation, the best Dharma practice."
"The best way to cure ourselves of disease is through meditation, through using our own mind. We then become our own doctor, or own psychologist, our own guru."
Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche
"Meditation is the only royal road to the attainment of freedom. It is a mysterious ladder which reaches from earth to heaven, from error to truth, from darkness to light, from pain to bliss, from restlessness to abiding peace, from ignorance to knowledge. From mortality to immortality."
"The meaning of life is found by diving deep, deep within."
"We practice meditation to connect with maitri (loving kindness) and unconditional openness."
Ven. Pema Chodrom
"'Presence of mind' is that state of being when the mind is present to what 'is' rather than being caught up in the inner world of idle mental chatter. You are not your mind. You are more than a mind. Our responsibility is to quieten the mind so that we can hear the voice of our intuition. Otherwise, the mind is forever jumping five seconds, minutes, weeks, months, or years into the future or the past."
"Meditation is the best thing you can do to change your life. It can help with depression, anger and other negative traits. It gives you the freedom and motivation to develop positive good qualities that will be inspirational in your and others lives."
