Give, even if you only have a little.
Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.
Irrigators channel waters; fletchers straighten arrows; carpenters bend wood; the wise master themselves.
Drop by drop is the water pot filled. Likewise, the wise man, gathering it little by little, fills himself with good.
The greatest gift is to give people your awakenment with awareness, to share it. It has to be the greatest.
If you knew what I know about the power of giving, you would not let a single meal pass without sharing it in some way.
The root of suffering is attachment.
Silence the angry man with love. Silence the ill-natured man with
kindness. Silence the miser with generosity. Silence the liar with
People with opinions just go around bothering each other.
Even as a solid rock is unshaken by the wind, so are the wise unshaken by praise or blame.
You yourself must strive. The Buddhas only point the way.
Nothing can harm you as much as your own thoughts unguarded.
Meditate… do not delay, lest you later regret it.
Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
Understanding is the heartwood of well-spoken words.
Ceasing to do evil, cultivating the good, purifying the mind: this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
Delight in meditation and solitude. Compose yourself, be happy. You are a seeker.
Ardently do today what must be done. Who knows? Tomorrow, death comes.
What you are is what you have been. What you’ll be is what you do now.
If you propose to speak always ask yourself, is it true, is it necessary, is it kind.
If you find no one to support you on the spiritual path, walk alone.

pillars of Islam. It is incumbent upon all mature Muslims, and highly
recommended for children aged ten and over, to complete their five daily
prayers according to the way the Prophet PBUH performed it in order for
them to be valid. It is believed that communication with Allah will

of connecting to Allah. Whether you’re just curious as to how Muslims
pray or if you’re looking to learn for yourself, it’s never too early to

past, not to worry about the future, not to anticipate the future, but
to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.
