Anyone have any good Buddhist sayings or wisdom? Do not speak unless it improves on silence. Just as the highest and the lowest notes are equally inaudible, so perhaps, is the greatest sense and the greatest nonsense equally unintelligible. Allan Watts Renunciation is not getting rid of the things of this world, but accepting that they pass away. Aitken Roshi The greatest achievement is selflessness. The greatest worth is self-mastery. The greatest quality is seeking to serve others. The greatest precept is continual awareness. The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything. The greatest action is not conforming with the worlds ways. The greatest magic is transmuting the passions. The greatest generosity is non-attachment. The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind. The greatest patience is humility. The greatest effort is not concerned with results. The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go. The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances. Atisha In criticizing, the teacher is hoping to teach. That's all. Bankei The true meaning of the precepts is not just that one should refrain from drinking alcohol, but also from getting drunk on nirvana.
