M anjushri, that comment caused the Elders son to make a vow: From now until the ends of future time throughout uncountable eons I16 will use expansive expedient means to help beings in the Six Paths who are suffering for their offenses. Only when they have all been liberated, will I myself become a Buddha. From the time he made that great vow in the presence of that Buddha until now, hundreds of thousands of nayutas of inexpressibly many eons have passed and still he is a Bodhisattva.

14 Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva: Also transliterated as Gwan Shr Yin Bodhisattva in this compilation; Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva; a bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. (?????:????????????)


W hen the mind is impartial towards all living beings, one can accomplish full and perfect Great Compassion. By using the Mind of Great Compassion to accord with living beings, one perfects the making of offerings to the Thus Come Ones.

Buddhism Quote n7741 | 
Ch.40, translated by the Buddhist Text Translation Society. 


A ll living beings are its roots; all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas are its flowers and fruits. By benefitting all beings with the water of Great Compassion, one can realize the flowers and fruits of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas wisdom.

Buddhism Quote n7740 |

13 Bodhi: Enlightenment.(??:???)


I f a Bodhisattva accords with living beings then he accords with and makes offerings to all Buddhas. If he can honor and serve living beings then he honors and serves the Thus Come Ones. If he makes living beings happy, he is making all Thus Come Ones happy. Why is this? It is because all Buddhas, Thus Come Ones, take the Mind of Great Compassion as their substance.

Buddhism Quote n7738 | 
Ch.40, translated by the Buddhist Text Translation Society. 


I t is time for all to seek deliverance from the pains of birth, death, old age, and sickness. Outflows of depravity and defilement are everywhere, and there is nothing in which you can find true joy. You should resolutely do worthy deeds with decorum , strive to do more good, control and purify your selves , wash off the minds defilements , be sincere in word and deed, and allow no contradiction between what you think and what you do.

Buddhism Quote n7737 | 
Translated by Hisao Inagaki. 


T herefore, you should think deeply and try to avoid various evil acts; choose the good and diligently practice it. A life of addiction to desires or a life of pomp and vain glory cannot last long. All must part; there is nothing you can truly enjoy.

Buddhism Quote n7736 | 
Translated by Hisao Inagaki. 


W hy do they not abandon all worldly involvements and strive, while they are strong and healthy, to pursue the good and diligently seek deliverance from samsara? If they do, they will be able to attain infinite life.

Buddhism Quote n7735 | 
Translated by Hisao Inagaki. 


W herever the Buddhas teachings are followed, be it in a country, a city, or a village, people will be transformed and will benefit. All the lands will be enveloped in peace and harmony. The sun and moon will shine clear and bright. Wind and rain will come when needed. Disasters and epidemics will not occur. The country will flourish and the people will enjoy peace. There will be no need for soldiers or weapons. Virtue will be revered and benevolence will be promoted. People will practice courtesy and humility. There will be no thieves or robbers in the country. There will be neither injustice nor resentment. The strong will not dominate the weak. Everyone will be treated equitably and get along harmoniously.

R eturning to the source, the nature is not two. Many are the entrances through expedients; the sagely nature permeates them all. Whether compliant or adverse, all situations are expedient.

Ch.2, translated by the Buddhist Text Translation Society. 
6 The Saddharma Pundarika Sutra declares that the three vehicles of the Sravaka (disciple), Pratyekabuddha (solitary buddha), and Bodhisattva are actually just three expedient devices (upayacausalya) for attracting beings to the one buddha vehicle, via which they all become buddhas.

T he Thus Come One3 commiserates with the beings in the Three Realms with infinite great compassion. This is why he appears in the world: to expound Buddhist teachings and spread them everywhere, like light; to help all beings; and to bring true benefit to them.

T he Buddhas, the World Honored Ones, appear in the world because they wish to lead living beings to open the knowledge and vision of the Buddhas and gain purity. They appear in the world because they wish to demonstrate to all living beings the knowledge and vision of the Buddhas.

v.183, translated by Acharya Buddharakkhita. 


A ll Buddhas, in all the countless worlds, in the midst of the oceans of mental inclinations of all kinds of sentient beings, urge them to remember the Buddhas . . . they multiply their bodies to go to all worlds in the ten directions to let the sentient beings behold them, meditate on them and contemplate them, attend and serve them, plant roots of goodness, gain the good graces of the Buddhas, and increase the family of Buddhas, all being certain to attain buddhahood.

Buddhism Quote n7557 | 
Trans. Thomas Cleary, Book 33, p.922, Shambhala 


T hose who desire to be born in Amitabha's Pure Land must perform three kinds of meritorious acts. The first act is: one must love his parents and attend dutifully to them, and he must also revere and serve his teachers and the elderly, refrain, with the loving-kindness he cultivates in his mind, from killing or irritating any living beings, and abide by the Ten Wholesome Ways. The second act is: one must understand and abide by the true principles of non-ignorance, righteousness, and purity. In addition, one must keep the various precepts, and refrain from breaking the Rules of Conduct. The third act is: one must awaken the mind that aspires for Enlightenment, believe deeply in the principle of cause and effect, read and recite the Mahayana teachings, and encourage those who practice the way. These three acts (the Three Meritorious Acts) are called the undefiled acts. The Buddha further said to Queen Vaidehi: You should know that these three kinds of virtuous deeds are none other than the true cause for the Enlightenment of all the Buddhas of the past, present and future.'

Buddhism Quote n7556 |

W hen I become a Buddha, all the beings born in my land will no longer discriminate. Their senses will be still and tranquil. If they do not definitely attain Supreme, Perfect Enlightenment and Great Nirvana, I will not attain perfect enlightenment.

Buddhism Quote n7555 | 
The Buddha teaches the Great Vehicle, Infinite Life, Adornment, Purity, Impartiality, and Enlightenment Sutra, chap. 6

Buddhism Quote n7553 | 
The Sutra of Consummate Enlightenment 


I at once became thoroughly enlightened, and realised that all things in the universe are the Essence of Mind itself. Who would have thought, I said to the Patriarch, that the Essence of Mind is intrinsically pure! Who would have thought that the Essence of Mind in intrinsically free from becoming or annihilation! Who would have thought that the Essence of Mind is intrinsically self-sufficient! Who would have thought that the Essence of Mind is intrinsically free from change! Who would have thought that all things are the manifestation of the Essence of Mind!

Buddhism Quote n7552 | 
The Sutra of Hui Neng: Sutra Spoken by the 6th Patriarch on the High Seat of 'The Treasure of the Law', chap. 1: Autobiography, H.K. Buddhist Book Distributor Press 


M ind is like an artist, Able to paint the worlds: The five clusters all are born thence; Theres nothing it doesnt make. As is the mind, so is the Buddha; As the Buddha, so living beings: Know that Buddha and mind Are in essence inexhaustible. If people know the actions of mind Create all the worlds, They will see the Buddha And understand Buddhas true nature.

Buddhism Quote n7551 | 
Trans. Thomas Cleary, Book 20, p.452, Shambhala 


A ll sentient beings have the knowledge and wisdom of Buddhas but in their folly and confusion do not know them or perceive them. . . . After shedding deluded notions and attachments, sentient beings will see in their own bodies the vast knowledge and wisdom of Buddhas, no different from the Buddhas. . . . After eradicating their deluded notions, sentient beings will recover the infinite knowledge and wisdom of Buddhas, and thus become able to aid and comfort all living beings.

Buddhism Quote n7550 | 
Chap. 51, Book 37-2 


A ll sentient beings possess within their true mind the sublime knowledge and wisdom of Buddhas. The knowledge and wisdom of Buddhas are pure, totally free from any mental discriminations, attachments and deluded notions. With this pure knowledge and wisdom, fully enlightened beings can realize the truth of all creation, understanding all phenomena of the universe. . . . Forever eradicating deluded notions, discriminations and attachments, sentient beings can see in their own bodies the knowledge and wisdom of Buddhas, no different from the Buddhas.

Buddhism Quote n7549 | 
Chap. 35, Book 32-3 


T hey observe all opportunities and affinities, First protecting others minds, making them noncontentious, Showing all sentient beings the place of peace; This is the path traveled by the skillful. . . . One light illumines boundlessly, Filling all lands in the ten directions, Causing all worlds to gain great brightness: This is the path of the darkness destroyers.

Buddhism Quote n7548 | 
Trans. Thomas Cleary, Book 21, p. 481, Shambhala 


A ll Buddhas know that all Buddhas of all times and all the beings they teach are essentially equal, definitely, without duality.

Buddhism Quote n7547 | 
Trans. Thomas Cleary, Book 33, p.925, Shambhala 


I n the ocean of sentient beings The buddha-body appears like a reflection; According to the differences in their understandings Thus do they see the Guide. . . . Buddha, with each of his bodies, Teaches in every place, Pervading the whole cosmos, Beyond the reach of thought.

Buddhism Quote n7546 | 
Trans. Thomas Cleary, Book 2, p.171, Shambhala 


C ountless eons of practice complete, You've become truly awake under the enlightenment tree: You appear universally to liberate beings, Like clouds filling all to the end of time. When beings have doubts, you put an end to them, Causing all to develop great faith and resolution; Everywhere removing unlimited suffering, You make all experience the peace of the Buddhas.

Buddhism Quote n7545 | 
Trans. Thomas Cleary, Book 2, p. 150, Shambala 


A t that time, the Buddha, the World Honored One, in this setting, attained to supreme, correct awareness of all things . . . His knowledge entered into all times with complete equanimity; his body filled all worlds; his voice universally accorded with all lands in the ten directions. . . . Each of his hair tips was able to contain all worlds without interference, in each manifesting immeasurable spiritual powers, teaching and civilizing all sentient beings.

Buddhism Quote n7544 | 
Trans. Thomas Cleary, Book 1, p. 56, Shambhala 


T o hold all beings in high esteem, and render them respectful services, that is equal to revering and serving the Tathagatas. To make all beings happy, is to please all Tathagata. And why? Because the Great Compassionate Heart is the essence of Buddhahood. For the sake of (delivering) all beings, (the Bodhisattva) develops Great Compassion, and from the Great Compassion springs the Bodhicitta, and from Bodhicitta comes the Enlightenment.

Buddhism Quote n7543 | 
chap. 40, On Entering the Inconceivable State of Liberation Through the Practices and Vows of the Bodhisattva Samantabhadra 


T here is not a single sentient being who is not fully endowed with the knowledge and wisdom of Buddhas; it is just that because of deluded notions, erroneous thinking, and attachments, they are unable to realize it. If they would eradicate deluded notions, then universal knowledge, spontaneous knowledge, and unobstructed knowledge would become manifest.

Buddhism Quote n7542 | 
Chap. 51, Book 37-2 


T he bodies of all Buddhas Are just one reality-body: One in mind, one in wisdom, The same in power and fearlessness.

Buddhism Quote n7541 | 
Chap. 13, Book 10 


H e who delights in subduing evil thoughts, who meditates on the loathsome-
ness of the body, who is ever mindful--it is he who will make an end of
craving. He will sever Mara's bond.

Buddhism Quote n4409 | 
Dhammapada 350 


T he craving of a person addicted to careless living grows like a creeper.
He jumps from life to life like a fruit-loving monkey in the forest.
Whomsoever in this world this base clinging thirst overcomes, his sorrows
flourish like well-watered birana grass. Whoso in the world overcomes
this base unruly craving, from him sorrows fall away like water drops from
a lotus leaf. This I say to you: Dig up the root of craving like one in
quest of the birana's sweet root. Let not Mara crush you again and again
as a flood crushes a reed.

Buddhism Quote n4408 | 
Dhammapada 334-37 


F rom endearment springs grief, from endearment springs fear; for him who
is wholly free from endearment there is no grief, much less fear.

From affection springs grief, from affection springs fear; for him who is
wholly free from affection there is no grief, much less fear.

From attachment springs grief, from attachment springs fear; for him who
is wholly free from attachment there is no grief, much less fear.

From lust springs grief, from lust springs fear; for him who is wholly
free from lust there is no grief, much less fear.

From craving springs grief, from craving springs fear; for him who is
wholly free from craving there is no grief, much less fear.

Buddhism Quote n4406 | 
Dhammapada 212-16 


T hrough the abandonment of desire the Deathless is realized.

Buddhism Quote n4401 | 
Samyutta Nikaya xlvii.37 


H e who has no thought of "I" and "mine" whatever towards his mind and
body, he who grieves not for that which he has not, he is, indeed, called
a bhikkhu.

Buddhism Quote n4393 | 
Dhammapada 367 


P eople under delusion accumulate tainted merits but do not tread the Path.
They are under the impression that to accumulate merits and to tread the
Path are one and the same thing.
Though their merits for alms-giving and offerings are infinite
They do not realize that the ultimate source of sin lies in the three
poisons within their own mind.
They expect to expiate their sins by accumulating merit
Without knowing that felicities obtained in future lives have nothing to
do with the expiation of sins.
Why not get rid of the sin within our own mind,
For this is true repentance?

Buddhism / Mahayana / Zen (Chan) Quote n4392 | 
Sutra of Hui Neng 6 


E ven three times a day to offer
Three hundred cooking pots of food
Does not match a portion of the merit
Acquired in one instant of love.

Buddhism / Mahayana / Madhyamaka Quote n4390 | 
Precious Garland 283 


V erily, from meditation arises wisdom. Without meditation wisdom wanes.

Buddhism Quote n4380 | 
Dhammapada 282 


S hould one see a wise man, who, like a revealer of treasure, points out
faults and reproves; let one associate with such a wise person; it will be
better, not worse, for him who associates with such a one.

Let him advise, instruct, and dissuade one from evil; truly pleasing is he
to the good, displeasing is he to the bad.
