„Zadrž bolest a smutek samsáry ve svém srdci, a zároveň vizi východního slunce. Poté si může dát válečník pravý šálek čaje.“

„Enlightenment is ego's ultimate disappointment.“


„The essence of warriorship, or the essence of human bravery, is refusing to give up on anyone or anything.“ Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

„We do not have to be ashamed of what we are. As sentient beings we have wonderful backgrounds. These backgrounds may not be particularly enlightened or peaceful or intelligent. Nevertheless, we have soil good enough to cultivate; we can plant anything in it.“ Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism

„If you are a warrior, decency means that you are not cheating anybody at all. You are not even about to cheat anybody. There is a sense of straightforwardness and simplicity. With setting-sun vision, or vision based on cowardice, straightforwardness is always a problem. If people have some story or news to tell somebody else, first of all they are either excited or disappointed. Then they begin to figure out how to tell their news. They develop a plan, which leads them completely away from simply telling it. By the time a person hears the news, it is not news at all, but opinion. It becomes a message of some kind, rather than fresh, straightforward news. Decency is the absence of strategy. It is of utmost importance to realize that the warrior’s approach should be simple-minded sometimes, very simple and straightforward. That makes it very beautiful: you having nothing up your sleeve; therefore a sense of genuineness comes through. That is decency.“

„A great deal of the chaos in the world occurs because people don't appreciate themselves.“ Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

„When you relate to thoughts obsessively, you are actually feeding them because thoughts need your attention to survive. Once you begin to pay attention to them and categorize them, then they become very powerful. You are feeding them energy because you are not seeing them as simple phenomena. If one tries to quiet them down, that is another way of feeding them.“ The Myth of Freedom and the Way of Meditation

„Becoming "awake" involves seeing our confusion more clearly.“ The Myth of Freedom and the Way of Meditation


„Everyone loves something, even if it's only tortillas.“

„Hold the sadness and pain of samsara in your heart and at the same time the power and vision of the Great Eastern Sun. Then the warrior can make a proper cup of tea.“

„The ideal of warriorship is that the warrior should be sad and tender, and because of that, the warrior can be very brave as well.“

„Are the great spiritual teachings really advocating that we fight evil because we are on the side of light, the side of peace? Are they telling us to fight against that other 'undesirable' side, the bad and the black. That is a big question. If there is wisdom in the sacred teachings, there should not be any war. As long as a person is involved with warfare, trying to defend or attack, then his action is not sacred; it is mundane, dualistic, a battlefield situation.“ Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism


„Real fearlessness is the product of tenderness. It comes from letting the world tickle your heart, your raw and beautiful heart. You are willing to open up, without resistance or shyness, and face the world. You are willing to share your heart with others.“

„... We leave our homeland, our property and our friends. We give up the familiar ground that supports our ego, admit the helplessness of ego to control its world and secure itself. We give up our clingings to superiority and self-preservation... It means giving up searching for a home, becoming a refugee, a lonely person who must depend on himself... Fundamentally, no one can help us. If we seek to relieve our loneliness, we will be distracted from the path. Instead, we must make a relationship with loneliness until it becomes aloneness.“ The Myth of Freedom and the Way of Meditation

„It's easier to put on a pair of shoes than to wrap the earth in leather.“

„Delight in itself is the approach of sanity. Delight is to open our eyes to the reality of the situation rather than siding with this or that point of view.“ The Myth of Freedom and the Way of Meditation
