Religious Thought 266

The disunited mind is far from wise; how can it meditate? How be at peace? When you know no peace, how can you know joy? When you let your mind follow the call of the senses, they carry away your better judgment as storms drive a boat off its charted course on the sea.
- Bhagavad Gita 2:66-67

The Buddha said: 'If outsiders speak against me, the Teaching or the Order, you should not be angry for that would prevent your own self-conquest. Similarly if they praise us. But you should find out what is false or true, and acknowledge the fact. And even in praise it is only of trifling matters that an unconverted man might speak of me.'
- Digha Nikaya

Religious Thought 265

You are the first among the gods, the timeless spirit, the resting place of all beings. You are the knower and the thing which is known. You are the final home; with your infinite form you pervade the cosmos.
- Bhagavad Gita 11:38

The one who wishes to escape from doubt Should be attentive and alert; Looking at mind and body both, He should see the causes and the origins.
- Patisambbida Magga

Religious Thought 264

To everyone of us there must come a time when the whole universe will be found to have been a dream, when we find the soul is infinitely better than the surroundings. It is only a question of time, and time is nothing in the infinite.
- Sai Baba

They're easy to do-- things of no good & no use to yourself. What's truly useful & good is truly harder than hard to do.
- Dhammapada 7, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Religious Thought 263

There is only one way to know the Self, And that is to realize him yourself.
The ignorant think the Self can be known By the intellect, but the illumined
Know he is beyond the duality Of the knower and the known.
- Kena Upanishad

By telling the truth; by not growing angry; by giving, when asked, no matter how little you have: by these three things you enter the presence of devas.
- Dhammapada 17, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

Religious Thought 262

Here our selfless desires are hidden by selfish ones. They are real, but they are covered by what is false. Therefore whoever of our own departs from this life, not one can ever be brought back before our eyes. But all those we love, alive or departed, and all things we desire but do not have, are found when we enter that space within the heart; for there abide all desires that are true, though covered by what is false.
- Chandogya Upanishad

Considering the harm others do to you As created by your former deeds, do not anger. Act such that further suffering will not be created And your own faults will disappear.
- Nagarjuna, "Precious Garland"
