Daily Buddhist Wisdom


Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.

— Siddhārtha Gautama

The perfection of generosity is said to be
The thought to give all beings everything,
Together with the fruit of such a thought.
Hence it is simply a state of mind.

— Santideva “Bodhicaryavatara"

The precious awakening mind of bodhicitta, which cherishes other sentient beings 
more than oneself, is the pillar of the bodhisattva’s practice.

— His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

— Kahlil Gibran

That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

― Friedrich Nietzsche

Behold the glow of the moon
illumine the world's four quarters
perfect light in perfect space
a radiance that purifies
people say it waxes and wanes
but I don't see it fade
just like a magic pearl
it shines both night and day.

— Shih-te
