Sacred Saying

W
isdom is the best guide and faith is the best companion. One must try to escape from the darkness of ignorance and suffering and seek the light of Enlightenment, suffering.

O
ne should forget oneself for the sake of one's family; one should forget ones family for the sake of ones village; one should forget ones village for the sake of the nation; and one should forget everything for the sake of Enlightenment

E
verything is changeable, Everything appears and disappears; There is no blissful peace until one passes beyond the agony of life and death.

T
he Secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live wisely and earnestly to the present. Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

H
appiness follows sorrow Sorrow follows happiness, but when one no longer discriminates between happiness and sorrow, a good deed and a bad deed, one is able to realize freedom.

To live a single day and hear a good teaching is better than to live a hundred years without knowing such teaching.

The World is always burning, burning with the fires of greed, anger and foolishness; one should flee from such dangers as soon as possible

Do not become attached to the things you like, Do not maintain aversion to the things you dislike.  Sorrow, fear and bondage come from one's likes and dislikes

It is easy to point out the mistakes of others, while it is hard to admit one's own mistakes. A man broadcasts the sins of other without thinking , but he hides his own sins as a gambler hides his extra dice.

Watch you thoughts; they become words,  Watch your words; they become actions,  Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch you habits; they become character, Watch you character; It become your Destiny
