“One is not a great one because one defeats

“The eating of meat extinguishes the seed of
great compassion.”~

The Buddha

Mahaparinibbana Sutta

NIBBANA SUTTA: In no circumstances should
one eat meat or fish ” nor animal corpses, found in the jungle, for instance
” nor even accept from a donor a meal which contains an abundance of flesh-foods.
The very contact of other food with meat is deemed defiling and requires purification
of the food by water.

To put the flesh of an animal into one’s belly makes it a grave yard for cows, pigs, sheep,
fowl, and fish, to mention the most common

Call Us By Our True Names

The last time you ordered me for dinner,
you forgot my true name.

I am not a wonton.
Call me by my true name.
I am a pig.
I was killed unhappily,
even if you eat me happily.

I am not a nugget.
Call me by my true name.
I am a chicken.
I was killed unhappily,
even if you eat me happily.

I am not a burger.
Call me by my true name.
I am a cow.
I was killed unhappily,
even if you eat me happily.

I am not a fillet.
Call me by my true name.
I am a fish.
I was killed unhappily,
even if you eat me happily.

I am not foie gras.
Call me by my true name.
I am a goose.
I was killed unhappily,
even if you eat me happily.

The next time you order me for dinner,
please call me by my true name… if you can…
which I hope you will not… anymore.
Shen Shi’an from

Yogis should at all times avoid fish, meat, and so forth, should eat with
moderation, and avoid foods that are not conducive to health.


Add some lentils to your life.

If you’re in a hurry,
canned lentils are a really convenient option.

Cooking lentils from scratch is pretty simple, unlike beans and
chickpeas. No soaking required, just simmer in a pot like pasta until
the lentils are tender (about 15-20 minutes). Drain and use. Lentil bolognese, lentil tacos, lentil
burgers, lentil lasagna, lentil chili—there are endless possibilities.

Canned legumes.

 Canned white beans or chickpeas will be equally as satisfying
and quick. Try
mashed chickpeas with Veganaise for a change.

Grate Brazil nuts, not cheese.


Consider Brazil nuts. Just finely grate your buts with a Microplane and
use anywhere you’d normally be reaching for the parmesan.

Make the most of mushrooms.


Just pop them in the oven
with a little garlic, thyme, and a generous drizzle of olive oil. Leave
for about a half-hour until tender and juicy.

Order the vegetarian option for a change.

  ‘Vegetarian’ option on restaurant menus can be surprisingly
delicious. Next time you’re out, why not give the veggie lasagna or the
veggie burger a go?

Try some tofu.


While tofu may have a reputation for being pretty bland, it’s
actually a great protein sponge for soaking up flavor. Try cubes of tofu
in your favorite curry or stew. Crumbled tofu tends to work well when you’ve had enough of lentils. Or try scrambled
tofu with a little curry powder and a softened onion.

Cream it with tahini.


Love creamy sauces? Then tahini, or ground sesame seed paste, could
be just the thing if you’re looking for a dairy-free alternative.
Drizzle this nutty sauce over roast vegetables or make a dressing by
combining equal amounts of tahihi, lemon juice, and water.

Go nuts.

Nuts are a great way to
add crunch and protein to veggie meals. They’re also a wonderfully
portable snack for vegetarians and carnivores alike.

Embrace the avocado.


Avocado salad
with a handful of nuts is one of my favorite vegan lunches. And don’t
forget guacamole.

Delve into dark chocolate.

there’s a whole world of vegan-friendly dark chocolate to explore. You
could even get creative and serve a few different dark chocolates from
different regions or chocolates with different cocoa contents, and have a
little chocolate tasting party to end a meal.

Lentil ragù with zucchini ‘noodles’ recipe


Serves 2

Inspired by the good old family classic spag bol (or spaghetti
bolognese), these baked zucchini noodles are one of the favorite options
for gluten-free comfort food. It’s handy to have a mandoline or
vegetable peeler to get lovely fine noodles. You could serve the lentil
ragu with pasta if you prefer.


Feel free to add to the lentils – I’ve kept it super simple but a little garlic, onion, chilli or even basil would work.


1. Preheat oven to 200C (400F).

2. Layer zucchini ribbons over a baking tray a few layers deep.
Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 10 minutes or until the zucchini is
no longer crunchy.

3. Heat 3-4 tablespoons olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add lentils and tomato paste and cook for a few minutes until hot.

4. Taste and season lentils, adding a little more olive oil or some butter if the tomato is too sharp.

5. Divide zucchini between two plates and top with lentils.

6. Serve with grated Brazil nuts on the side and a green salad

Season with soy sauce.


I recently read a theory the Buddhist monks invented soy sauce as a
way to convince the masses to become vegetarian.

Soy sauce also contains a generous slug of these tasty glutamates. So
it can be a great flavor booster in vegetarian dishes. Other sources
include tomato and mushrooms.

“Being a vegetarian makes it easier for us to
increase our loving kindness and compassion.”
~ Zen Master Thich Thanh
Udumbara Flowers, Book II

trade of slaughtering and contributing to the violent deaths of harmless animals.”

than encouraging apathy through submissive responses, let us deliver the message
loudly and clearly, that needles killing and suffering is wrong.”

Bodo Balsys
Ahimsa : Buddhism and the Vegetarian Ideal

“In his
final teachings before he physically left this earth, the Buddha foresaw that
a situation would arise in the future where those speaking in his name would pervert
his Doctrine and encourage meat consumption. So here, in this great Nirvana Sutra,
he lays down his last will and testament on the matter: in no circumstances should
one eat meat or fish ” nor animal corpses, found in the jungle, for instance
” nor even accept from a donor a meal which contains an abundance of flesh-foods.
The very contact of other food with meat is deemed defiling and requires purification
of the food by water. It is quite evident from all this that the Buddha in no
way condoned the eating of meat and was keen for his monastic and lay followers
to abjure the uncompassionate practice of meat eating and follow the pure path
of vegetarian Mahayana. In this, we would be wise and benevolent to follow him.”

Dr. Tony Page
Buddha - Self: The “Secret” Teachings of the Buddha
in the Mahaparinirvana Sutra, Vol. 2

“When we bring mindfulness to
the dinner table, it suffuses the rest of our life as well. We become more sensitive
to the well-being of animals, of the environment, and of ourselves and our families.
We are more aware of the choices we make in all areas of our life. We enjoy food
more, know that, while the obtaining of even plant foods necessitates some suffering,
the amount and kind of suffering is dramatically reduced when we leave meat off
our shopping lists and out of our kitchens. We become more aware of how meat consumption
feeds violence and anger.”

Kate Lawrence
Mindfulness in the Marketplace: Compassionate Responses to Consumerism

“When we have acquired an awareness of the fact that all beings have
been our mothers, and when this awareness is constant, the result will be that
when we see meat, we will be conscious of the fact that it is the flesh of our
own mothers. And, far from putting it in our mouths and eating it, we will be
unable to even take it into our hands or smell its odor.”
- Shabkar Tsogdruk
Food of Bodhisattvas: Buddhist Teachings on Abstaining from Meat

“The Buddha’s teaching leads us to the realization that we must always
strive to harm no sentient being, human or nonhuman, whether or not it is in our
selfish interest to do so.”
~ Norm Phelps
The Great Compassion: Buddhism
& Animal Rights

“The eating of meat extinguishes the seed of
great compassion.”~
The Buddha
Mahaparinirvana Sutra

the case for shunning animal flesh does not rest on what the Buddha allegedly
said or didn’t say. What is does rest on is our innate moral goodness, compassion,
and pity which, when liberated, lead us to value all forms of life. It is obvious,
then, that willfully to take life, or through the eating of meat indirectly to
cause others to kill, runs counter to the deepest instincts of human beings.”
Roshi Philip Kapleau
To Cherish All Life

“There are three ways
of killing that we, as Buddhists, have to restrain: either by directly killing,
indirectly killing, or rejoicing to see others be killed. Not only does this apply
to human life, it should be also extended to all living beings.”

Zen Master Thich Thanh Tu
Buddhism for Beginners

“The eating
of meat cannot in any way be considered to be helpful to the practice of the dharma,
neither can the slaughter of animals be considered to be consistent with the Buddhist
teachings of compassion (metta , ahimsa , and karuna ), of loving kindness, or
of the nature of the evocation of the enlightenment-mind. The cruelties associated
with the slaughter of the animal kingdom for human consumption, the pain, fear,
and distress suffered by the animals in the entire process of being fattened for
butchering, as well as the environmental disasters wreaked upon our planet through
the meat industry, are very well documented, and should be understood by all who
claim to be developing bodhicitta, or who wish to.”
~ Bodo Balsys
: Buddhism and the Vegetarian Ideal

“Meat eating and a compassionate
religion do not go hand in hand.”

of bodhichitta in our minds is our craving for meat.”

“If there is no meat eater, there will be no animal killer”
Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol
Food of Bodhisattvas: Buddhist Teachings on Abstaining
from Meat

“To put the flesh of an animal into one’s belly makes one
an accessory after the fact of its slaughter, simply because if cows, pigs, sheep,
fowl, and fish, to mention the most common, were not eaten they would not be killed.”
Roshi Philip Kapleau
To Cherish All Life

“We can do no greater
harm that to kill another sentient being. Killing is the ultimate expression if
indifference to the well-being of others. All, except in the most extreme circumstances,
cherish life. In the contemporary hell of the modern slaughterhouse animals cry
out and cower in terror when they realize that their life is nearing a premature
end. All beings, except in the most desperate circumstances, try to escape death.”

“One is not a great one because one defeats
or harms other living beings. One is so called because one refrains from defeating
or harming other living beings.”
~ The Buddha
Dhammapada, Ch. 19 (15/270),
Max Muller, Trans.

“The Buddha said time and time again in the sutras
such things as: “My followers should give up all evil actions that directly
or indirectly injure others.” One may disregard his words; one may consciously
lead others to commit evil in provisioning oneself with meat. One may think, “There
are always skillful means in the sutras and tantras that counteract the evil so
that I shall still be pure of stain.” And one can let oneself off the hook
by telling oneself that there are substances to be placed into the animals’ mouths
and words that can be whispered in their ears and impressed upon their minds so
that they will not remain in the lower realms. But to do all this reveals a complete
failure to grasp the meaning of the Buddha’s teaching. It is a perversion of the
- Shabkar Tsogdruk RangdrolFood of Bodhisattvas: Buddhist Teachings
on Abstaining from Meat

“Although one can sympathize with lay person
trying to break their attachment to a diet featuring meat, it is something else
again to extend those sympathies to monks, priests, and teachers. What business
have these latter to propound the Dharma when they possess neither the perception
nor compassion to see the connection between meat eating and the killing of harmless
animals, and when they lack the self-discipline to put Buddhist compassion before
the pleasure on their palates’ What right have they to wear the Buddha’s robes
when they won’t or can’t honor the bodhisattva vows they recite daily to liberate
all beings?”

teaches the doctrine of karma, which is the law of cause and effect relating to
our actions. Karma means that whatever one sows, one reaps, be it good or evil.
The consequences of meritorious acts are always good. Evil acts, on the other
hand, ensure painful retribution. Buddhists are aware that we are constantly creating
new karma by our actions. One who believes in the law of causation, therefore,
will be careful not to cause pain to people, animals, plants, or the earth itself,
for harming them is simultaneously harming oneself.”
~ Ven. Sunyana Graef
Foundations of Ecology in Zen Buddhism

“Usually when people look
at the Buddhist precepts, they understand them in terms of human relationships
” Do not kill. Do not steal. Do not lie. Of course these are about human
relationships, but what do they mean in terms of the environment? There is a particular
kind of stealing that we do when we clear-cut forests, when topsoil is washed
into rivers. There is a particular kind of killing that we do when we wipe out
whole species. These precepts are taught not only as they relate to humans but
also how they relate to the environment, to the ten thousand things. Not only
the sentient, ‘feeling’ beings’deer, muskrat, beaver’ but to the rocks, trees
and river. All of it.”

Great Compassion: Buddhism & Animal Rights

“Aware of the suffering
caused by the destruction of life, I am committed to cultivating compassion and
learning ways to protect the lives of people, animals, plants, and minerals. I
am determined not to kill, not to let others kill, and not to support any act
of killing in the world, in my thinking, and in my way of life.”
~ The
First Mindfulness Training, Thich Nhat Hanh
The Heart of Buddha’s Teaching

“Buddhism teaches us that all our suffering issues from our desires.
A desirous mind state generates harmfulness in all its forms, both toward others,
and toward ourselves. As has been witnessed throughout the millennia in both monastic
and strong lay practice in several traditions, when one goes without meat or fish,
one may well find oneself released from the desire for these foods (although not
instantly, of course) and one may even “soften” to the suffering of
all creatures through a closer identity with them. Vegetarianism can be an aid
to learning to live a life of actions taken outside the realm of doing harm. It
is hard to say, in fact, which may come first, and which way the cycle may spiral
” non meat eating leading to sympathy for the plight of animals, or growing
sympathy arising from deep and dedicated spiritual practice leading to a gathering
unwillingness to cause harm by supporting animal slaughter. But it becomes clear,
along the road to vegetarianism, that the less meat one desires, the closer one
feels toward all life, the more harmless one feels, and the more aware of the
suffering of the helpless beasts one is. If, and possibly only if, vegetarianism
is supported by involved and sincere spiritual practice, it serves to soften us
up. It actually (forgive me) tenderizes us. “
~ Sensei Sevan Ross
and Zen Practice

“The perpetuators of the Buddha dharma have a moral
responsibility to the rest of humanity to be at the forefront of the change away
from blood-letting and killing, and not surreptitiously fostering it because of
their lack of will to change their habits or mode of thinking concerning the animal

“If a man can control his body and mind and thereby refrains from eating
animal flesh and wearing animal products, I say he will really be liberated.”
The Buddha
From the Surangama Sutra

who eat meat often make the excuse that it is natural to do so, that people were
meant to eat meat. They promote this idea, and then freely indulge in taking the
lives of their fellow creatures, thereby creating extensive hatred and enmity-karma.

regards all living creatures as being endowed with the Buddha nature and the potential
to become Buddhas. That’s why Buddhism teaches us to refrain from killing and
to liberate creatures instead.”
~ Venerable Master Hsuan Hua

“When virtuous mental attitudes, like mindfulness, respect,
and compassion, are invoked to justify nonvirtuous acts like hunting, fishing,
and eating animal products, the mental attitudes are insincere. They are self-deceptions
that we create to justify habits that in our hearts we know are wrong, but to
which we have become attached.”

Releasing life accords with the mind of heaven;
Releasing life

Releasing life unties the snare of
Releasing life purifies the taint of sin.
Releasing life enables
one to escape the three disasters;
Releasing life enables one to be free from
the nine kinds of untimely deaths.
Releasing life enables one to love long;
life enables one to rise high in an official career;
Releasing life enables
one to gave many children;
Releasing life enables one to have a prosperous
Releasing life dispels anxieties and worries;
Releasing life
reduces sickness and pain.
Releasing life is the compassion Kuan-yin;
life is the deed of P’u-hsien.
By releasing life one comes to realize the truth
of no birth.
By releasing life one ends transmigration.

Life, on the act of buying and releasing animal meant for slaughter (as cited
in Religious Vegetarianism)

“These days many voices proclaim the
sanctity of human life. Human life should of course be valued highly, but at the
same time the lives of other living beans should also be treasured. Human beings
snatch away the lives of other creatures whenever it suits their purposes. The
way of thinking that encourages this behavior arises from a specifically human
brand of violence that defiles the self-evident laws of the universe, opposes
the growth of the myriad things in nature, and destroys feelings of compassion
and reverence arising from our Buddha-nature. In view of such needless destruction
of life, it is essential that laymen and monks together conscientiously uphold
this precept.”
~ Hakuun Yasutani-roshi on the Precept of Non-Harm
quoted in To Cherish All Life

“Perhaps it is part of being human
to question who and what we are. Unfortunately, because we rely almost exclusively
on our senses, the harder we look, the more we misinterpret what we see. We believe
on the one hand that we are an insignificant dot in the universe, separate from
all other humans, much less the natural world. But we also believe that we are
the most highly evolved organism in creation, entitled to use whatever we can
grasp for our own ends.
“Buddhists have a different view of humanity.
In terms of their psycho-spiritual development people stand about midway between
Buddhas and amoebas. However, on an absolute level, people, Buddhas, amoebas,
dogs, streams, and mountains are one and the same. Buddhism addresses the apparent
disparity between what we see and what we actually are. And it does so by delving
into the roots of what it means to be human.”

Sayings of the Buddha from the
Lankavatara Sutra:~

“For innumerable
reasons, Mahamati, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to eat
any meat.”

~ “For fear
of causing terror to living beings, Mahamati, let the Bodhisattva who is disciplining
himself to attain compassion, refrain from eating flesh.”
~ “Meat
is not agreeable to the wise: it has a nauseating odor, it causes a bad reputation,
it is food for the carnivorous; I say this, Mahamati, it is not to be eaten.”
“From eating meat arrogance is born, from arrogance erroneous imaginations
issue, and from imagination is born greed; and for this reason refrain from eating
~ “Meat-eating is condemned by the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas,
and Sravakas; if one devours meat out of shamelessness he will always be devoid
of sense.”
~ “Therefore, do not eat meat which will cause terror
among people, because it hinders the truth of emancipation; not to eat meat? this
is the mark of the wise.”

“A person of the deepest spirituality
will also have a tender concern for every aspect of creation. Such an individual
could no more harm a living creature than he or she could harm himself or herself.
Buddhist scriptures contend that a bodhisattva will not even walk on grass lest
it be harmed. Indeed, the first Buddhist precept is the admonition not to kill,
but to cherish all life. This attitude is especially important with respect to
food, since anything we eat must die to sustain us. Still, it is less destructive,
on a relative level, to take the life of a carrot or an apple than to take that
of a more highly evolved form of life, such as a cow, a chicken, or a lobster.
Too, from a purely ecological point of view, it is less detrimental to the environment
to eat as low as possible on the food chain. All this explains why many Buddhists
are vegetarians.”
~ Ven. Sunyana Graef
The Foundations of Ecology in
Zen Buddhism

“It is sad to see how many American Buddhists are managing
to find a self-satisfying accommodation to eating meat. Some airily cite the doctrine
of Emptiness, insisting that ultimately there is no killing and no sentient being
being killed. Others find cover behind the excuse that taking life is the natural
order of things and, after all, “the life of a carrot and that of a cow are
equal.” The truth is, though, that as humans we are endowed with discriminating
minds that we can use to educate ourselves to the implications of our volitional
acts and to choose those foods that minimize suffering to living beings.”
Bodhin Kjolhede
“A Debate on Food and Practice,” Tricycle, Winter

“This precept [of non-harm] includes non-killing of beings like
ants, mosquitoes, and cockroaches.”
~ Ven. U. Vimalaramsi
from his translation of the Anapanasuti Sutta

“When we hunt or fish,
we deliberately kill a defenseless being who wishes us no harm. This is a direct
violation of the First Precept. It is absolutely forbidden to Buddhists. As to
eating meat, we know that the only way we can obtain it is for an animal to be
killed. Therefore, when we eat meat, it is our intent that an innocent animal
should die to satisfy our addiction to flesh. And that underlying intention, no
matter how well hidden behind a smokescreen of rationalizations will block the
growth of compassion and create negative karma.”

The Great Compassion: Buddhism & Animal

“Sincere practitioners feel a natural, visceral compassion
for the goats and sheep as if they were their old mothers. They will have nothing
to do with killing them for the sake of meat. On the contrary, they save life
eagerly; they ransom animals set aside for slaughter and release them. Otherwise,
it is like trying to punch someone who isn’t there. Showing compassion for animals
after they have been killed and the meat is being eaten? reciting mantras for
the animal?s sake? is nothing but a silly game.”
-Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol
of Bodhisattvas: Buddhist Teachings on Abstaining from Meat

“An understanding
and acceptance of the theory of evolution is important because without that acceptance
there is a perception of a great separation between humans and animals which simply
is not true.”

Right Understanding

the crisis of feeding the world’s population grows, breeding of animals for human
consumption becomes less acceptable” out of compassion for the suffering
of animals and the awareness that it is a grossly inefficient use of water and
grain. A new relationship with the animal kingdom is part of our changing perception
of the Earth. Animals are part of us, and part of our practice.”

Hunt Badiner
Engaged Buddhist Reader

“The first precept in Buddhism
is “Do not kill.” This precept is not merely a legalistic prohibition,
but a realization of our affinity with all who share the gift of life. A compassionate
heart provides a firm ground for this precept.”
~ Chatsumarn Kabilsingh
Buddhist Reader

“Human beings also kill animals not just for food.
They take the animal’s skin to make shoes and hats and clothes. And even that
is not enough. They take these animal’s bones to make necklaces or buttons or
earrings. In short, they kill many, many animals in order to sell the animal parts
for money. Because of these desires and this strong animal consciousness, human
beings fight with each other, and destroy nature. They do not value life. So now
this whole world has many problems; problems with the water, problems with the
air, problems with the earth and food. Many new problems appear every day. These
problems do not happen by accident. Human beings make each and every one of these
problems. Dogs, cats, or lions, or snakes - no animal makes as many problems for
this world as human beings do. Humans do not understand their true nature, so
they use their thinking and desire to create so much suffering for this world.
That is why some people say that human beings are the number one bad animal in
this world. So human beings must soon wake up and find their original seeds, their
original nature.”
~ Zen Master Seung Sahn
The Compass of Zen

a Buddhist, we practice so as to benefit self and others hence we do the six-syllable
mantra practice. However, when we eat meat be it chicken, pork, fish or eggs in
our daily lives, we are creating immense negative karma. If on the one hand, we
chant the mantra and on the other hand, we eat the meat of mother sentient beings,
then our words and actions do not tally with one another. We are not doing as
we preach. Can this be considered as loving kindness and compassion towards sentient
beings” Is this doing good and abstaining from evil” We take refuge
in the Buddha because his teachings could benefit all sentient beings. As a Buddhist,
we should understand the essence of the Buddha’s wisdom and teachings, which is
to do good and abstain from committing evil deeds. Abstaining from evil means
that we have to keep our precepts. Hence we should not take meat. When we are
sick, old or near death, we would go to the doctor, we would practice and do anything
possible to extend our lifespan. However, when we take meat, we are killing sentient
beings that are healthy. How great is our compassion and loving kindness if we
treat sentient beings in such a manner? We should abstain from killing because
it generates immense negative karma. Instead, we should develop loving kindness
and compassion towards all sentient beings.
“In countless rebirth, all
sentient beings have been our parents. When we took rebirth in the human realm,
we had human parents; when we took rebirth in the animal realm, we had animal
parents and so forth. Samsara is such. We need to generate a sense of gratitude
towards our parents in this lifetime and those of our past lives. Hence, we should
be vegetarians and abstain from taking meat. In such a way, we would do good and
give meaning to our practice. By doing so, our practice of the six-syllable mantra
would be able to benefit ourselves and others, and also aid in the flourishing
of the Dharma. There are some people who say that their doctor has advised them
against becoming vegetarians, as they would suffer from malnutrition. This is
a sign that the determination of these people is not strong enough. For if one
has strong determination, one would avoid doing evil deeds at all cost and under
any circumstances. Hence in our daily lives, we should stop committing the negative
deed of eating meat. On this basis, the merits generated from our refuge and practice
of the six-syllable mantra would be inconceivable. We should try to change our
lifestyle towards vegetarianism. We would certainly face difficulties in becoming
full vegetarians. However, when such obstacles arise, we should remember how every
sentient being had at one point or another been our parents. When we remember
this, then we would not take meat just as we would not eat the meat of our parents
of this lifetime.”

Buddhist Folktales and Parables

The Father

A young single father had a son that he loved more than anything in
the world. One day while the father was away, some plunderers burned
down most of his village and kidnapped the little boy.

When the father came back, he mistook one of the burnt corpses as his
son. Completely devastated, he had the body cremated, and put the ashes
in a bag that he always carried around.

Days later, his son escaped from the plunderers, ran back home, and
knocked on the door of the house that his father rebuilt. His father
asked who it was. When the boy answered, “It’s me, your son—please let
me in,” the father, who was still holding the bag of ashes, assumed it
was some other boy playing a cruel joke. “Go away,” he shouted back.

The boy continued to knock and plead to the father, but the father
continued to tell him to leave. Finally, the boy left and never came
back again.

And just like that example, if a person is intently holding to an
idea as the absolute and unmodifiable truth, he won’t be able to open
the door and accept the actual truth when it comes firsthand knocking on
his door.


A man invited a friend over for dinner one night—but while his friend ate, he did not seem to be enjoying the food.

The man offered him some salt, and the friend sprinkled a little on
the food, ate it, and thought, “This salt really makes the food taste
good. And if just a little salt makes it better, then a lot of salt will
only improve it more.”

He then proceeded to pour a few tablespoons of salt directly into his mouth—and seconds later, he spit it out in disgust.

The man in this story is comparable to people who think that since
moderate eating and drinking has benefits, extreme deprivation must be
even better. They end up starving and depriving themselves, and soon
find out that they have veered from the right Way.

Ten Dollars

One day, a merchant set out on a short trip in order to collect a
debt of ten dollars from a man living several miles away. After paying a
boatman five dollars to take him across a river, the merchant was uable
to find the man, and had to pay another five dollars to make his way
back home. He spent ten dollars and a few hours to collect a ten dollar
debt—and he ultimately ended up empty-handed.

This is analogous to people who obsessively pursue a petty gain, and
end up neglecting much more important matters and periling themselves in
many ways.

A Herd of Cows

A man had a herd of 250 cows and took great care looking after their
welfare. One day, however, a tiger ate one of them—and when the man
noticed this, he thought, “I’ve lost one of my cows, and my herd is
incomplete. What’s the point of having all these other cows?” And with
that, the man drove all the cows off a cliff and to their death.

He is like a person who, after breaking just one precept of
righteousness, thinks, “I’ve broken one, so I might as well abandon them

Converting Inventory

The son of a wealthy man found some valuable aloe wood at the bottom
of a river, and took it to sell at the bazaar. However, his price was
too high, and he found no buyers. Growing discouraged and desperate, he
noticed a nearby charcoal seller doing brisk sales, and he decided to
burn his aloe wood into charcoal. He managed to sell the charcoal
easily, but the money he got for it was nowhere near the value of the
aloe wood.

This is similar to how some people practice diligently at first to
achieve spiritual goals, but soon grow discouraged at some obstacle, and
choose to abandon great things and give up a great deal in order to
accept a trivial amount.

Trying the Remedy

After being whipped by the King, a man tried treating his lash wounds
by rubbing horse feces on them. Someone else noticed this, and
excitedly thought, “I have discovered a magnificent way to heal wounds.”
He went to his home and ordered his child to whip him severely on the
back—and after the child obeyed, the man happily tried out his newly
discovered remedy.

The King’s Decree

A King had citizens living in a village ten miles from his palace.
This village had fantastic spring water, and the King ordered the
villagers bring him some every day.

The villagers, however, were greatly annoyed and inconvenienced
having to make the lengthy trip. One day, a village leader said, “I’m
going to go to the King and ask him to issue a decree stating that from
now on, the distance from our village to the palace will only be one
mile. This will make our task much easier.”

Afer hearing the man’s request, the King gladly complied and issued
the decree—much to the delight of the villagers. One of them, however,
remarked, “What difference will that make? The distance will remain the
same—only the name will change!”

Nevertheless, the villagers still believed in the King’s decree.

People who cling too much to names and words often act like those villagers.

Man Yells at Water

A thirsty traveler spotted a wooden conduit with water running in it,
and drank until he was satiated. After finishing, he held up his hand
and announced to the water, “I’m done drinking. Stop running.” As the
water continued to run, the man grew angry and yelled, “I’m done
drinking, and I just told you to stop! Why are you still running?”

A bystander noticed this and remarked, “Why don’t you just leave the water instead of yelling for it to stop flowing?”

The man’s behavior is similar to people who, rather than doing what
is necessary, just verbally demand that something happen, and then
become angry when it doesn’t.

Lots of Work, Little Reward

A man spent months carving and polishing a large rock into a toy cow.
He did an enormous amount of work, yet it resulted in very little.

This is analogous to people who work hard merely to excel others in
fame. If they were motivated by the supreme fruits instead of fame, the
payoff for their efforts would be much greater.

Spotting Gold

A man mistakenly thought he spotted gold in a pond, and dove in to
retrieve it. After coming up empty handed and stirring up the water’s
mud, he got out of the pond and waited for the mud to settle. When it
did, he once again saw what he thought was gold, and dove in to get it.

He got out and sat by the pond for a few minutes, and then his father came walking by and said, “Why are you all wet and tired?”

The man replied, “ I spotted gold in the lake, and I dove in to get it, but all to no avail.”

The father looked at the pond, which had settled down again, and saw
the gold, but could tell that it was actually a reflection of gold on a
tree behind them. He turned around and looked at the tree, and the gold
was there. He showed it to his son, and the son got the gold.

The Fast Eater

The day after their marriage, a newlywed couple was eating a meal
together—and for no apparent reason, the husband was wolfing down his
food like there was no tomorrow.

One day, his wife said to him, “My beloved husband, no one is going to steal your food. Why don’t you slow down and enjoy it?”

The husband snappily replied, “That’ts my secret. I can’t tell you.”

Upon hearing this, the wife became even more curious about her
husband’s bizarre eating habits, and asked once again in an affectionate
tone. Finally, the husband replied, “I eat like this because my family
has eaten quickly for as long as we can trace back our history. I’tm
just following our custom.”

Many people act like this man. Rather than considering whether what
they’re doing is right or wrong, they simply say, “This is how our group
has done things for as long back as we can remember, and that is why we
do it now,” and they persist in these actions without modifying them,
all the way until their death.

Man Hides Rice in His Mouth

A man visited his wife’s family, and noticed that they were hulling
rice. The man, greatly desiring to eat some, waited until they left the
room, and then grabbed some and put it in his mouth.

But seconds later, his wife came back in the room. She asked him
something, and the husband, with the rice still in his mouth, did not
answer because he did not want to be embarrassed and have the rice

Noticing that her husband was not replying, the wife became confused
and concerned, and she examined his cheeks. In a panic, she yelled out
to her father, “My husband has some kind of disorder! There are strange
bulges in his mouth, and he can’t speak!”

The father brought over a doctor, who examined the man and remarked,
“This is a very dangerous condition, and we must take action immediately
and cut this man’s cheek open.”

So he did, and then everyone watched as the rice fell out of the man’s mouth.

Like this example, people often do wrong actions, and then go to such
greeat lengths to hide them that they often put themselves in even
worse situations, and stubbornly persist in the wrong no matter how much
misfortune it results in. They are like the man in this story who went
as far as let his cheek be cut open because he was trying to avoid some
shame—and at the end, his wrong action was revealed anyway.

Wheat Growing Technique

A man observed a farm where wheat was growing very well. He went to
the farmer and asked what he did to make the wheat grow so abundantly,
and the farmer replied, “I leveled the land and added water and manure,
and it’ts been growing like this since them.”

So the man went home eager to duplicate the farmer’s method, and put
water and fertilizer on the field. He also began carefully sowing the
seeds, but as he did, he noticed his feet stepping on the ground, and he
feared that it would damage the seeds.

The man became concerned, and decided to hire four men to hold him in
a chair while he sowed the seeds from the air. The new plan, however,
had its own drawbacks, and the four men holding the chair ended up
stepping on the ground four times as much as the man did previously by

This man’s example is like when people are on the right way, but then
overcomplicate things and invite wrong actions into their lives. This
is just like the man who exchanged the trampling of two feet for eight

Eye Pain

A woman was talking to her friend, and mentioned that she had been experiencing pain in her eyes.

“Are they bothering you right now?” asked the friend.

“Yes,” the first lady replied.

The friend thought for a moment and then remarked, “Well, I guess a
person’s eyes will end up hurting at some point during her life. My eyes
aren’t bothering me right now, but I don’t want them to bother me
later, so I’ll just gouge them out.”

A bystander heard her say this and remarked, “What! Your eyes might
bother you every once in a while. But having no eyes at all will cause
many more problems. Before you act so forcefully, you should examine
things further.”

Father Spots Robbers Coming

A father and his son were waling on a path, and noticed some robbers
approaching them. The father was greatly alarmed, and frantically tried
to remove a gold earring his child was wearing. However, the father
couldn’t get them off in time, so he took out his knife and sliced off
the boy’s head. When the robbers finally came to the man and saw that
they had nothing to steal, they passed by, and the father put the boys
head back on his shoulders“but obviously, it did nothing.

This man is like people who, trying to take advantage of a very minor
advantage, expose themselves to major misfortune. And it is also like
those people who cling to one viewpoint, and will not accept the truth
when it comes their way.

The Monkey and the Pea

A monkey ran down from a tree and snatched a huge handful of some
people’s peas. As he ran back up the tree, one of the peas fell from his
hands. He tried to grab it, but in his attempt to catch that one pea,
he dropped all of the others he was carrying. They all fell to the
ground, and some animals ate them.

This is like a person who maintains some righteousness, but then upon
making one small mistake, he doesn’t deal with it properly, and
foolishly throws all righteousness away.

Always Fearing Everything

A forest-dwelling elephant had been living a peaceful life, but one
day a king spotted her and said to his servants, “Take that elephant to
the palace garden and have the instructors train her.”

They did as he said, but the palace trainers were cruel and they
constantly beat the elephant. She was terrified of them, and escaped the
palace and ran all the way to the Himalayas.

After many years passed, the king had forgotten about the elephant,
but the elephant still hadn’t moved on from her experience at the royal
garden. She was still frightened and worried, and grew excessively thin
because she barely ate.

One day, a tree-sprite told her, “Don’t be afraid all of the
time—you’re not in the palace garden anymore. Stop the excessive
worrying, for you are free now.”

The Boat

Just because you used a boat to cross a river, it doesn’t mean you
should pick up the boat after you reached land, and carry it with you
wherever you go.

And just like that boat example, sometimes you should consider using teachings or methods the same way.

The Goldsmith

Imagine a goldsmith that is using tongs and a furnace to melt gold.
If he constantly makes the fire too hot, the gold will get too hot. If
he constantly sprays too much water on it, the gold will not be hot
enough. If he constantly takes it out to examine it, it will never
become refined. However, if he does all these things but each at their
suitable time when needed, and he knows the nature of gold, he will have
no problem at all in molding and refining it.

Just like that example, any practitioner needs to attend to these
three qualities: focus, determination, and composure. If he properly
attends to these things at the right time and circumstance, his mind
will become pliant, brilliant, and pure, just like gold.


A man went wandering on a very hot day. As the hours passed, he
became quite thirsty, and, imagining a mirage of water far away, chased
it as if it were real. As luck would have it, his pursuit of the mirage
lead him right towards a real riverbank, gushing with water. However,
the man, now more thirsty than ever, merely stood next to the water
without taking so much as a single drink.

A bystander noticed him and asked about his bizarre behavior.

“You look extremely thirsty, and yet you’ve been standing here for a minute without taking a drink.”

The man replied, “Well, I am really thistry—but there’s too much water in this river for me, and I can’t finish it all!”

This man is comparable to someone who is presented with numerous
advantages or teachings, and but refuses to take a single one because he
can’t take and maintain all of them. He is putting himself on an
unending cycle of missed opportunities.

The Guide

Several merchants hired a guide to lead them to a certain harbor.

On the way, the group across a famous shrine; and the merchants,
knowing that it was customary to make a human sacrifice whenever passing
it, decided to sacrifice the guide.

Afterwards, they continued on their journey minus the now-dead guide;
and without him, they got lost, wandered the desert for several days,
and eventually died of thirst.

Correct actions are our guides to the Way, similar to how a human
guide can lead travelers to a destination. Some, however, sacrifice
correct actions, and end up lost.

The Starving Man and the Camel

A King noticed that one his servants, a very poor man, had gradually
become thin and weak. In order to help him, the King gave him a camel
that had just died.

The man began to skin the camel, but found that his knife was not
sharp enough. As he searched for a whetstone, someone informed him that
there was one at the top of a nearby tower.

And so, the man went to the tower and climbed it, found the
whetstone, and used it to sharpen his knife. After doing so, he went
back down and continued skinning the camel, but his knife dulled again.

Again, he climbed the tower, sharpened his knife, and went back
down—and again, he skinned the camel some more until his knife became

And then after continuing this pattern a few more times and growing
exhausted from the trips, he later decided to drag the camel all the way
up the tower and skin it there.

But he obviously would have been best off by bringing the whetstone
down to the camel in the first place, and saving himself all the
unnecessary work.

Wealthy Man’s Spit

Long ago in a small town, everyone competed to gain the favor of an
extremely wealhty man. Even if he spit, someone would hurry to honor him
by putting out the spit with their foot.One villager, however, never
got the opportunity to even do that. So one day, he decided that since
everyone beat him to stepping on the spit before it reached the ground,
he would carefully observe the wealthy man, and step on the spit just as
it was leaving his mouth. Greatly pleased with his plan, he followed
through with it the next day—but he ended up kicking the man right in
the face and injuring him severely! Greatly angered, the other yelled,
“You must be a lunatic! Why did you just kick me in the mouth?”

The reply was, “I did it to gain your favor, Sir. When you spit,
everyone else rushes to step and put it in the ground, but I am always
too late. So, I stepped on it even before it left your mouth. And now
that you know my reason, surely you are pleased by what I did.”

The man’s mistake was that his timing was wildly off. There is a
proper time for everything, and if a person wants to force a benefit
before the proper time for it has arrived, it will result in problems.

The Arrow

Someone wounded by a poisoned arrow would not delay in removing it in
order to first find out the exact details of who shot it, the reason
that person shot it, where the arrow was manufactured, etc. If he
attended to all of that before pulling out the the poisonous arrow, he
would probably die.

In this same way, dealing with the life situations that we experience
at hand should be prioritized over concern about understanding things.

Buddha Quotes

If it were impossible to cultivate the Good, I would not tell you to do so

Learning is a good thing; but it avails not. True wisdom can be acquired by practice only.

Surely if living creatures saw the results of all their evil
deeds, they would turn away from them in disgust. But selfhood blinds
them, and they cling to their obnoxious desires.

They crave pleasure for themselves and they cause pain to others;
when death destroys their individuality, they find no peace; their
thirst for existence abides, and their selfhood reappears in new births.

Thus they continue to move in the coil and can find no escape from
the hell of their own making. And how empty are their pleasures, how
vain are their endeavors!—hollow like the plantain-tree, and without
contents like the bubble.

The world is full of evil and sorrow, because it is full of lust. Men
go astray because they think that delusion is better than truth. Rather
than truth they follow error, which is pleasant to look at in the
beginning but in the end causes anxiety, tribulation, and misery.

The first noble truth is the existence of sorrow. Birth is
sorrowful, growth is sorrowful, illness is sorrowful, and death is
sorrowful. ‘Tis sad to be joined with what we do not like, ‘tis sadder
to be sepreated form what we love, and ‘tis painful to crave what we
cannot obtain.

The second noble truth is the cause of suffering. The cause of
suffering is lust. The surrounding world affects sensation and begets a
craving thirst, which clamors for immediate satisfaction. The illusion
of self originates and manifests itself in a cleaving to things. The
desire to live for the enjoyment of self entangles us in the net of
sorrow. Pleasures are the bait and the result is pain.

The third noble truth is the cessation of sorrow. He who conquers
self will be free from lust. He no longer craves, and the flame of
desire finds no material to feed upon. Thus it will be extinguished.

The fourth noble truth is the eightfold path that leads to the
cessation of sorrow. There is salvation for him whose self disappears
before Truth, whose will is bent upon what he ought to do, whose sole
desire is the performance of his duty. He who is wise will enter this
path and make an end of sorrow.

The eightfold path is right (1) right comprehension, (2) right
resolutions, (3) right speech, (4) right acts, (5) right livelihood, (6)
right efforts, (7) right thoughts, and (8) the right state of a
peaceful mind.

All mortification is vain so long as self remains, so long as self continues to lust after worldly or heavenly pleasures.

But he in whom self has become extinct is free from lust—he will
desire neither worldly nor heavenly pleasures, and the satisfaction of
his natural wants will not defile him. Let him eat and drink according
to the needs of the body.

Water surrounds the lotuses, but does not wet its petal. On the other
hand, sensuality of all kinds is enervating. The sensual man is a slave
of his passions, and pleasure-seeking is degrading.

But to satisfy the necessities of life is not evil. To keep the body
in good healthy is a duty, for otherwise we shall not be able to trim
the lamp of wisdom, and keep our mind strong and clear.

This is the Middle Path, O bhikshus, that keeps aloof from both extremes.

Errors lead astray; illusions beget miseries. They intoxicate
like strong drinks; but they fade away soon and leave you sick and

Self is a fever; self is a transient vision, a dream; but truth is
wholesome, truth is sublime, truth is everlasting. There is no
immortality except in truth. For truth alone abides forever.

A man that dwells in lonely woods and yet covets worldly
vanities is a worldling, while the man in worldly garments may let his
heart soar high to heavenly thoughts.

The restless, busy nature of the world, this, I declare, is at the root of pain.

Attain that composure of mind which is resting in the peace of
immortality. Self is but a heap of composite qualities, and its world is
empty like a fantasy.

Who is it that shapes our lives? Is it Isvara, a personal
creator? If Isvara be the maker, all living things should have silently
to submit to their maker’s power. They would be like vessels formed by
the potter’s hand; and if it were so, how would it be possible to
practice virtue? If the world had been made by Isvara, there should be
no such thing as sorrow, or calamity, or evil; for both pure and impure
deeds must come from him. If not, there would be another cause beside
him, and he would not be self-existent.

Thus, you see, the thought of Isvara is overthrown.

Again, it is said that the Absolute has created us. But that which is
absolute cannot be a cause. All things around us come from a cause as
the plant comes from the seed; but how can the Absolute be the cause of
all things alike? If it pervades them, then, certainly, it does not make

Again, it is said that Self is the maker. But if self is the maker,
why did it not make things pleasing? The causes of sorrow and joy are
real and objective. How can they have been made by self?

Again, if we adopt the argument that there is no maker, our fate is
such as it is, and there is no causation, what use would there be in
shaping our lives and adjusting means to an end?

Therefore, we argue that all things that exist are not without cause.
However, neither Isvara, nor the absolute, nor the self, nor causeless
chance, is the maker, but our deeds produce results both good and evil
according to the law of causation.

Let us, then, abandon the heresy of worshipping Isvara and of praying
to him; let us no longer lose ourselves in vain speculations of
profitless subtleties; let us surrender self and all selfishness, and as
all things are fixed by causation, let us practice good so that good
may result from our actions.

The wise man will use the light he has to receive more light. He will constantly advance in the knowledge of truth.

…Let your happiness depend, not upon external things, but upon your own mind.

All creatures are what they are through the karma of their deeds done in former and in present existences.

The rational nature of man is a spark of the true light; it is the
first step on the upward road. But new births are required to insure an
ascent to the summit of existence, the enlightenment of mind and heart,
where the immeasurable light of moral comprehension is gained which is
the source of all righteousness.

Having attained this higher birth, I have found the truth and have
taught you the noble path that leads to the city of peace. I have shown
you the way to the lake of Ambrosia, which washes away all evil desire. I
have given you the refreshing drink called the perception of truth, and
he who drinks of it becomes free from excitement, passion, and

The very gods envy the bliss of him who has escaped from the floods
of passion and has climbed the shores of Nirvana. His heart is cleansed
from all defilement and free from all illusion.

He is like unto the lotus which grows in the water, yet not a drop of water adheres to its petals.

The man who walks in the noble path lives in the world, and yet his heart is not defiled by worldly desires.

And what, O brethren, is the path that leads to the annihilation
of suffering? It is the holy eightfold path that leads to the
annihilation of suffering, which consists of right views, right
decision, right speech, right action, right living, right struggling,
right thoughts, and right meditation.

Now suppose that a man should come hither to the bank of the river,
and, having some business on the other side, should want to cross. Do
you suppose that if he were to invoke the other bank of the river to
come over to him on this side, the bank would come on account of his
praying? …

Yet this is the way of the Brahmans. They omit the practice of those
qualities which really make a man a Brahman, and say, “Indra, we call
upon thee; Soma, we call upon thee; Varuna, we call upon thee; Brahma,
we call upon thee.”

Verily, it is not possible that these Brahmans, on account of their
invocations, prayers, and praises, should after death be united with

The Tathagata reveals the higher life in its purity and perfection.
He can show you the way to that which is contrary to the five great

This is the sign that a man follows the right path: Uprightness is
his delight, and he sees danger in the least of those things that he
should avoid. He trains himself in the commands of morality, he
encompasses himself with holiness in word and deed; he sustains his life
by means that are quite pure; good is his conduct, guarded is the door
of his senses; mindful and self-possessed, he is altogether happy.

He who walks in the eightfold noble path with unswerving determination is sure to reach Nirvana.

He whose mind is free from the illusion of self, will stand and not fall in that battle of life.

Let a man’s pleasure be the Dharma, let him delight in the Dharma,
let him stand fast in the Dharma, let him know how to inquire into the
Dharma, let him not raise any dispute that pollutes the Dharma, and let
him spend his time in pondering on the well-spoken truths of the Dharma.



… If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as
the wheel follows the foot of the ox that draws the carriage. …. If a
man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a
shadow that never leaves him.

[Our hope for liberation lies in the regeneration of our nature. By

Fools of little understanding have themselves for their greatest enemies, for they do evil deeds that must bear bitter fruits.

As long as the evil deed done does not bear fruit, the fool thinks it

And when the evil deed, after it has become known, brings sorrow to

“May both the layman and he who has left the world think that this is

A wise man should leave the dark state (of ordinary life), and follow
the bright state (of the Bhikshu). After going from his home to a
homeless state, he should in his retirement look for enjoyment where
there seemed to be no enjoyment. Leaving all pleasures behind, and
calling nothing his own, the wise man should purge himself from all the
troubles of the mind.

If one man conquers in battle a thousand times a thousand men, and
another conquers himself, the second man would have a far greater
conquest. For one’s own self conquered is better than victory over other

Neither nakedness nor matted hair nor uncleanliness nor fasting nor

Let each person direct himself to what is right and proper, and then

If a person makes himself as good as he tells others to be, then
being himself well-subdued, he may subdue others, for it is difficult

Only the person himself can master himself: who else can be master?
By conquering and subduing his own self, a person becomes his own

Any wrong or evil that a man does is born in himself and caused by

Since a shower of gold coins cannot satisfy desires and all pleasures

Men, driven by fear, go for refuge in the mountains and forests, the

He who goes for refuge to the Buddha, the Dhamma and the Sangha, goes
to a safe refuge, and with clear understanding, sees the Four Holy

It follows a fool scorching
him like a smouldering fire. - Gautama Buddha”

“One may desire a spurious respect and precedence
among one’s fellow monks, and
the veneration of outsiders. “Both monks and laity
should think it was my doing.
They should accept my authority in all matters great or
small.” This is a fool’s
way of thinking. His self-seeking and conceit just
increase. - Gautama Buddha”

“Navvies channel water, fletchers fashion arrows,
and carpenters work on wood,
but the wise disciple themselves. - Gautama Buddha”

“Few are those among men who have crossed over to
the other shore, while the
rest of mankind runs along the bank. However those who
follow the principles of
the well-taught Truth will cross over to the other shore,
out of the dominion of
Death, hard though it is to escape. - Gautama Buddha”

“Journey over, sorrowless, freed in every way, and
with all bonds broken — for
such a man there is no more distress. - Gautama Buddha”

“The recollected go forth to lives of renunciation.
They take no pleasure in a
fixed abode. Like wild swans abandoning a pool, they
leave one resting place
after another. - Gautama Buddha”

“He whose inflowing thoughts are dried up, who is
unattached to food, whose
dwelling place is an empty and imageless release — the
way of such a person is
hard to follow, like the path of birds through the sky. -
Gautama Buddha”
