G ood is restraint over the eye; good is restraint over the ear; good is restraint over the nose; good is restraint over the tongue. Good is restraint in the body; good is restraint in speech; good is restraint in thought. Restraint everywhere is good. The monk restrained in every way is freed from all suffering.




Buddhism Quote n°7795 | 
vv.360, 361, translated by Acharya Buddharakkhita. 

   




H e who treads the Path in earnest sees not the mistakes of the world; If we find fault with others we ourselves are also in the wrong. When other people are in the wrong, we should ignore it, for it is wrong for us to find fault. By getting rid of the habit of faultfinding we cut off a source of deflement.




Buddhism Quote n°7794 | 
The Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra,ch.2, translated by A. F. Price and Wong Mou-Lam. 

   




H e who seeks another’s faults, who is ever censorious — his cankers grow. He is far from destruction of the cankers.




Buddhism Quote n°7793 |

L et none find fault with others; let none see the omissions and commissions of others. But let one see one’s own acts, done and undone.

T he Buddha asked a Shramana, “How long is the human life span?” He replied, “few days.” The Buddha said, “You have not yet understood th e Way.” He asked another Shramana, “How long is the human life span?” The reply was, “the space of a meal.” The Buddha said, “You have not yet understood the Way.”He asked another Shramana, “ How long is the human life span?” He replied, “the length of a single breath.” The Buddha said, “Excellent. You have understood the Way.”

D eep learning and a love of the Way make the Way difficult to attain. When you guard your mind and revere the Way, the Way is truly great!




Buddhism Quote n°7790 | 
Translated by the Buddhist Text Translation Society. 

   




O ne who practices the Way is like an ox pulling a heavy load through deep mud. The ox is so extremely exhausted that it dares not glance to the left or right. Only when it gets out of the mud can it rest. The Shramana should regard emotion and desire as being worse than deep mud; and with an undeviating mind, he should be mindful of the Way. Then he can avoid suffering.




Buddhism Quote n°7789 | 
Translated by the Buddhist Text Translation Society. 

   




S tudents of the Buddha Way should believe in and accord with everything that the Buddha teaches. When you eat honey, it is sweet on the surface and sweet in the center; it is the same with my sutras.




Buddhism Quote n°7788 | 
Translated by the Buddhist Text Translation Society. 

   




S hramanas who study the Way must make their minds resolute and be vigorous, courageous, and valiant. Not fearing what lies ahead, they should defeat the hordes of demons and obtain the fruition of the Way.

Translated by the Buddhist Text Translation Society.

H e who has gone for refuge to the Buddha , the Teaching and his Order26, penetrates with transcendental wisdom the Four Noble Truths – suffering, the cause of suffering, the cessation of suffering, and the Noble Eightfold Path leading to the cessation of suffering.

Translated from the Pali by Narada Thera © 1996 

   




M oreover, Earth Store, in the future leaders of nations, Brahmans, and others may, upon encountering ancient Buddhist stupas and monasteries or sutras and images that are damaged, decaying, or broken, resolve to restore them. Those leaders and good people may then do so themselves or encourage others, as many as hundreds of thousands of people to help and thereby establish affinities. Those leaders and good people will become Wheel-Turning Kings for hundreds of thousands of successive lives and those who made offerings with them will be leaders of small nations for as many lives. If, before the stupas or monasteries, they resolve to dedicate that merit, then, based on that limitless and unbounded reward, those leaders, good people, and their helpers will eventually all complete the path to Buddhahood.




Buddhism Quote n°7761 | 
Translated by the Buddhist Text Translation Society. 

   




T he Buddha told Earth Store Bodhisattva, “In Jambudvipa22, leaders of nations, prime ministers, high officials, great Elders, great Ksatriyas, great Brahmans, and others may encounter those who are poor, hunchbacked, crippled, dumb, mute, deaf, retarded, blind or handicapped in other ways. Those leaders and good people may wish to give to those people and may be able to do so with great compassion, a humble heart, and a smile. They may arrange to give generously, either personally with their own hands, or by arranging for others to do so, using gentle words and sympathetic speech. The blessings and benefits that such leaders and good people will accrue will be comparable to the meritorious virtues derived from giving to as many Buddhas as there are grains of sand in a hundred Ganges Rivers. Why is that? Those leaders and good people will receive such rewards of blessings and benefits for having shown a great compassionate heart toward the most impoverished and handicapped individuals.”

22 Jambudvipa: In the cosmologies of Hinduism and Buddhism, one of the four continents where ordinary human beings live in a world system.(???:???????????,???????????????????????)

P eople of the world, parents and children, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, and other family members and kinsmen, should respect and love each other, refraining from hatred and envy. They should share things with others, and not be greedy and miserly, always speak friendly words with a pleasing smile, and not hurt each other.




Buddhism Quote n°7756 |

B eing grateful, one should support one’s parents and attend to them filially. Being righteous, the senior and the junior should be empathetic towards each other. Being forbearing, the superior and the inferior should get along harmoniously. Being tolerant, no quarrel or conflict shall arise from hostility. If we can persevere like lighting a fire from drilling wood, then red lotus (the Buddha-nature) will definitely rise from the black mire (the deluded state).




Buddhism Quote n°7755 |

T he Tathagatas20 of the ten directions escaped birth and death because their minds were straightforward. Since their minds and words were consistently that way, from the beginning, through the intermediate stages to the end, they were never in the least evasive.
