Religious Thought 272

“Cling to the feet of a master who can introduce you to yourself.”

- Swami Veda Bharati

“For some years now, students have not been getting to the root of the aim of Zen, instead taking the verbal teachings of Buddhas and Zen masters to be the ultimate rule. That is like ignoring a hundred thousand pure clear oceans and only focusing attention on a single bubble.”

- Ying-an

Grief clouds thought and reason, and harms both the soul and the body; so you should repel it, or reduce it as much as possible. This can be done in two ways: you can strive to prevent grief from occurring; and you can banish grief when it does occur. ”

- Razi, "Kitab al-Muluki"

“God is always trying to give good things to us, but our hands are too full to receive them.”

- Saint Augustine of Hippo

“Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders and they will instruct you.”

- Deuteronomy 32:7
