A Baby Bodhisattva's Buddha Bowl

from the gurino...

and now.. A Baby Bodhisattva's Buddha Bowl of inspiring
NEW YEAR WORDS for You! Feel welcome to send n' share
them with others... even read it aloud to yourself as the words
dance across your mind, penetrate your heart and play
amongst your lips & breath...


Even after achieving the goal of all spiritual practices,
you cannot be indifferent to 'new beginnings' ~
A beginning is forever full of magic,
enchantment and treasures to be explored.
No matter what the occasion,
a new beginning must be approached
with a mystical awareness of its potential.

~ Chidvalisa Ananda


You do not have to be a Saint to make the world a better place.
You do not have to give up everything for the good of others.
It does not have to be either complete renunciation
or complete obsession with oneself.
It does not have to be all or nothing.
Perhaps it is just the little things you can do.
After all, small acts of kindness can change your world. (try it.)

~ Anila Choying Drolma


Do not look back in Anger,
or forward in Fear,
but around in Awareness.

~ James Thurber


Love is the only freedom from attachment.
When you love everything, you are attached to nothing.

~ The Book of Mirdad by Mikhail Naimy


If one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams,
and endeavors to actually live the life which they have imagined,
they will meet with a success unexpected in common hours
... so build your castles in the air, that is where they should be !
Now, for God's-sake, go put the foundations under them !

~ Henry David Thoreau


A 'Second Chance' -
That's a delusion.
There never was to be
but one each time.
We do work in the dark -
We do what we can -
We give what we have -
Our constant inquiry is our passion -
and our Passion is our blessed task.
The rest is the madness of art !!!

~ Henry James, "The Middle Years"
