I’ve been to a Japanese Museum today and saw this amazingly #beautiful #Buddha from 1890 aprox. It was not allowed but I had to take a picture, the security man caught me, oops!

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.
Buddha
Compassion is that which makes the heart of the good move at the pain of others. It crushes and destroys the pain of others; thus, it is called compassion. It is called compassion because it shelters and embraces the distressed.
Buddha
True and lasting inner peace can never be found in external things. It can only be found within in. And then, once we find and nurture it with ourselves, it radiates outward.
Buddha
Set your heart on doing good. Do it over and over again, and you will be filled with joy.
Buddha
Let your happiness depend, not upon external things, but upon your own mind.
Buddha
Happiness follows sorrow, sorrow follows happiness, but when one no longer discriminates happiness and sorrow, a good deal and a bad deed, one is able to realize freedom.
Buddha
There is only one moment in time when it is necessary to awaken. That moment is now.
Buddha
Do not pursue the past.
Do not lose yourself in the future.
The past no longer is.
The future has not yet come.
Looking deeply at life as it is.
In the very here and now,
the practitioner dwells in stability and freedom.
We must be diligent today.
To wait until tomorrow is too late.
Death comes unexpectedly.
How can we bargain with it?
The sage calls a person who knows how to dwell in mindfulness night and day, one who knows the better way to live alone.
Buddha
Who is one’s own best friend, and who is one’s own worst enemy? Those whose thoughts, speech and actions are evil, they are their own worst enemy. Even if they were to say: “We care about ourselves,” nevertheless they would be their own worst enemy. And why? Because that which one would do to an enemy, they do to themselves. Those whose thoughts, speech and actions are good, they are their own best friends. Even if they were to say: “We don’t care about ourselves,” nevertheless they would be their own best friend. And why? Because that which one would do to a friend, they do to themselves.
Buddha
On a long journey of human life, faith is the best of companions; it is the best refreshment on the journey; and it is the greatest property.
Buddha
It is our very search for perfection outside ourselves that causes our suffering.
Buddha
Once a man came unto me and denounced me on account of my observing the Way and practicing great loving-kindness. But I kept silent and did not answer him. The denunciation ceased. Then I asked him. ‘If you bring a present to your neighbor and he accepts it not; does the present come back to you?’ He replied, ‘It will.’ I said, ’ You denounce me now, but as I accept it not, you must take the wrong deed back on your own person. It is like echo succeeding sound, it is like shadow following object; you never escape the effect of your own evil deeds. Be therefore mindful, and cease from doing evil.
Buddha
Looking outside the self is to compare and to discriminate. You will not find happiness that way. Nor will you find peace, if
you spend more time looking for a perfect person or the perfect
teacher. The Buddha taught us to look at the Dhamma, the truth, and not to look at other people.
