Abandoning all selfish desires,
a person moves through life
free from worldly longings,
Without the sense of ‘mine’,
without the notion
of ‘I am acting’—
that one attains peace.

The Bhagavad Gita (via as-effervescent-as-i)

Should even one’s enemy arrive at the doorstep, they should be attended upon with respect. A tree does not withdraw its cooling shade even from the one who has come to cut it.

Mahabharata 12.146.5 (via brahmaanda)

Our Dhamma path must be a path without ambition, unless that ambition is to be free from the causes of our unhappiness.

Michael Kewley -  No ambition

May all beings be happy.

(via abiding-in-peace)

When they think that they know the answers, people are difficult to guide.
When they know that they don’t know,
people can find their own way

Lao Tzu (via thecalminside)
