"If it is not truthful and not helpful, don't say it.
If it is truthful and not helpful, don't say it.
If it is not truthful and helpful, don't say it.
If it is truthful and helpful, wait for the right time."

~ Buddha

"You take it all in. You let the pain of the world touch your heart and you turn it into compassion.” -- The Sixteenth Gyalwa Karmapa quoted by Pema Chodron

"So, when we are willing, intentionally, with this kind of attitude, this vision, to breathe in the suffering, we are able to transform it easily and naturally; it doesn't take a major effort on our part, other than allow it." -- Norman Fischer, Training in Compassion:
Zen Teachings on the Practice of Lojong

Dear Folks,
More and more, I'm grateful for the Teachers and Teachings that have brought Tonglen Practice into my life. I muse about it (once again), this week in Your MMM Courtesy Wake Up Call: Taking It to Heart. Have a look?

The TAO that can be "tao-ed" can not be the infinite TAO (that is, the way that can be followed can not be the ultimate, pathless Way).

“Any Bodhisattva who undertakes the practice of meditation should cherish one thought only: ‘When I attain perfect wisdom, I will liberate all sentient beings in every realm of the universe, and allow them to pass into the eternal peace of Nirvana.’ And yet, when vast, uncountable, unthinkable myriads of beings have been liberated, truly no being has been liberated. Why? Because no Bodhisattva who is a true Bodhisattva entertains such concepts as ‘self’ and ‘other’. Thus there are no sentient beings to be liberated and no self to attain perfect wisdom…The Buddha has no doctrine to convey. The truth is ungraspable and inexpressible. It neither is nor is not…All Bodhisattvas should develop a pure, lucid mind that doesn’t depend on sight, sound, touch, flavor, smell or any thought that arises in it. A Bodhisattva should develop a mind that alights nowhere. The mind should be kept independent of any thoughts that arise within it. If the mind depends upon anything, it has no sure haven…When I attained Absolute, Perfect Enlightenment, I attained absolutely nothing. That is why it is called Absolute, Perfect Enlightenment.”
