„Když někdo jiný vytváří kolem sebe utrpení je to proto, že trpí hluboko v sobě, a utrpení přenáší na své okolí. On si nezaslouží trest, ale pomoc.
To je poselství, které vysílá.“

„Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.“ Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life


„When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending.“

„Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.“

„To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.“

„People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.“

„Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything - anger, anxiety, or possessions - we cannot be free.“ The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching: Transforming Suffering into Peace, Joy, and Liberation

„People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle.“ The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation


„Because you are alive, everything is possible.“ Living Buddha, Living Christ

„When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you
don't blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not
doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or
less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have
problems with our friends or family, we blame the other
person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will
grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive
effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason
and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no
reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you
understand, and you show that you understand, you can
love, and the situation will change“

„Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.“ Stepping into Freedom: Rules of Monastic Practice for Novices

„Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.“


„Smile, breathe and go slowly.“

„Many people think excitement is happiness.... But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace.“ The Art of Power

„Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth... This is the real message of love.“ Teachings on Love

„The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don't wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to be happy.“ The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching: Transforming Suffering into Peace, Joy, and Liberation
