The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

All beings are from the very beginning Buddhas


“All beings are from the very beginning Buddhas. Like water and ice; apart from water, no ice. Outside living beings, no Buddhas. Not knowing it is near, they seek it afar. What a pity!” ~ Hakuin ~

“How wonderful will it be when All Beings experience each other as limbs on the One body of Life.” ~Shantideva~

“Our usual understanding of life is dualistic: you and I, this and that, good and bad. But actually these discriminations are themselves the awareness of the Universal existence. “You” means to be aware of the Universe in the form of you, and “I” means to be aware of it in the form of I. You and I are just swinging doors…” ~Shunryu Suzuki~
