Religious Thought 287

Men who conduct themselves virtuously Are incapable of voicing harmful words, even forgetfully.
- Tirukkural 14:139

Here, O Sariputra, form is emptiness and the very emptiness is form; emptiness does not differ from form, form does not differ from emptiness; whatever is form, that is emptiness, whatever is emptiness, that is form, the same is true of feelings, perceptions, impulses, and consciousness.
- Heart Sutra

Religious Thought 286

Someone who practices only bhakti yoga is like a blind man who cannot see where to go, and in his enthusiasm wanders off in the wrong direction. Someone who practices only gnana yoga, on the other hand, is like a lame man who can see the distant destination but, because his knowledge remains only theoretical, makes no progress towards it. However, if the love and energy of the bhakta is combined with the wisdom and discrimination of the gnani, seekers are sure to reach their destination.
- Hindu teaching story

From what's loved is born grief, from what's loved is born fear. For one freed from whats loved there's no grief —so how fear?
- Dhammapada, 213, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Religious Thought 285

What you do may seem insignificant, but it's important that you do it.
- Gandhi

Neither nakedness nor matted hair nor mud nor the refusal of food nor sleeping on the bare ground nor dust & dirt nor squatting austerities cleanses the mortal who's not gone beyond doubt. If, though adorned, one lives in tune with the chaste life --calmed, tamed & assured-- having put down the rod toward all beings, he's a contemplative a brahmin a monk.
- Dhammapada, 10, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Religious Thought 284

“I have worshipped woman as the living embodiment of the spirit of service and sacrifice.”

- Mahatma Gandhi, 1933

A mother, even at the risk of her own life, protects her child, her only child. In the same way should you cultivate love without measure toward all beings. You should cultivate toward the whole world--above, below, around--a heart of love unstinted, unmixed with any sense of differing or opposing interests. You should maintain this mindfulness all the time you are awake. Such a state of heart is the best in the world.”

- Majjhima Nikaya

Religious Thought 283

“No worldly delight is comparable to the delight that will fill your heart when you completely abandon all hopes and desires.”

- Maharamayana

“Those who argue and discuss without understanding the truth are lost amid all the forms of relative knowledge, running about here and there and trying to justify their view of the substance of ego. If you realize the self in your inmost consciousness, it will appear in its purity. This is the womb of wonder, which is not the realm of those who live only by reason. Pure in its own nature and free from the categories of finite and infinite, Universal Mind is the undefiled wonder, which is wrongly apprehended by many.”

- Lankavatara Sutra

Religious Thought 282

“Giving simply because it is right to give, without thought of return, at a proper time, in proper circumstances, and to a worthy person, is sattvic giving. Giving with regrets or in the expectation of receiving some favor or of getting something in return is rajasic. Giving at an inappropriate time, in inappropriate circumstances, and to an unworthy person, without affection or respect, is tamasic.”

- Bhagavad Gita 17:20-22

“Your own self is your own mainstay, for who else could your mainstay be? With you yourself well-trained you obtain the mainstay hard to obtain.”

- Dhammapada, 12, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
