110  quote(s)  | Page 5 / 5

B e it in the past, present, or future, whosoever of the monks or priests regards the delightful and pleasurable things in the world as impermanent (anicca), miserable (dukkha), and without a self (anattaa), as diseases and cankers, it is he who overcomes craving.

Buddhism Quote n°2118 | 
Samyutta Nikaya, XII. 66 

H ow can you find delight and mirth
Where there is burning without end?
In deepest darkness you are wrapped!
Why do you not seek for the light?
I look at this puppet here, well rigged,
A heap of many sores, piled up,
Diseased, and full of greediness,
Unstable, and impermanent!
Devoured by old age is this frame,
A prey to sickness, weak and frail;
To pieces breaks this putrid body,
All life must truly end in death.

Buddhism Quote n°2115 | 
Khuddaka Nikaya, Dhammapada, 146-48 

S uppose a man who was not blind beheld the many bubbles on the Ganges as they drove along, and he watched them and carefully examined them; then after he had carefully examined them they would appear to him empty, unreal and unsubstantial. In exactly the same way does the monk behold all the corporeal phenomena, feelings, perceptions, mental formations, and states of consciousness-whether they be of the past, or the present, or the future, far or near. And he watches them, and examines them carefully; and, after carefully examining them, they appear to him empty, void and without a Self.

Buddhism Quote n°2114 | 
Samyutta Nikaya, XXII. 95 

C orporeality is transient, feeling is transient, perception is transient, mental formations are transient, consciousness is transient.

Buddhism Quote n°2113 | 
Samyutta Nikaya, XXII, 59 

A ll things are `without a self' (anattaa).

Buddhism Quote n°2112 | 
Anguttara Nikaya, III. 134 

T here will come a time when the mighty ocean will dry up, vanish, and be no more. There will come a time when the mighty earth will be devoured by fire, perish, and be no more. But yet there will be no end to the suffering of beings, who, obstructed by ignorance, and ensnared by craving, are hurrying and hastening through this round of rebirths.

Buddhism Quote n°2110 | 
Samyutta Nikaya, XXII. 9 

A nd wherever the beings spring into existence. There their deeds will ripen; and wherever their deeds ripen, there they will earn the fruits of those deeds, be it in this life, or be it in the next life, or be it in any other future life.

Buddhism Quote n°2109 | 
Anguttara Nikaya, III. 33 

A ll beings are the owners of their deeds (kamma, Skr: karma), the heirs of their deeds: their deeds are the womb from which they sprang, with their deeds they are bound up, their deeds are their refuge. Whatever deeds they do-good or evil-of such they will be the heirs.

Buddhism Quote n°2108 | 
Anguttara Nikaya, X. 206 

I t is volition (cetanaa) that I call `Karma' (action). Having willed, one acts by body, speech, and mind.
There are actions (kamma) ripening in hells. . . Ripening in the animal kingdom. . . Ripening in the domain of ghosts. . . Ripening amongst men. . . Ripening in heavenly worlds.
The result of actions (vipaaka) is of three kinds: ripening in the present life, in the next life, or in future lives.

Buddhism Quote n°2107 | 
Anguttara Nikaya, VI. 63 

N ot in the air, nor ocean-midst,
Nor hidden in the mountain clefts,
Nowhere is found a place on earth,
Where man is freed from evil deeds.

Buddhism Quote n°2106 | 
Khuddaka Nikaya, Dhammapada, 127
