Sunday Dinner: In Peace

Christmas Eve morning in our garden

“In the end, only three things matter:
how much you loved,
how gently you lived,
and how gracefully you let go of things
not meant for you.”
Gautama Buddha
“There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.”
Gautama Buddha
“The day the power of love
overrules the love of power,
the world will know peace.”
Mahatma Gandhi
“Truth is the same always.
Whoever ponders it
will get the same answer.
Buddha got it.
Patanjali got it.
Jesus got it.
Mohammed got it.
The answer is the same,
but the method of working it out
may vary this way or that.”
Swami Satchidananda
“You are the community now.
Be a lamp for yourselves.
Be your own refuge.
Seek for no other.
All things must pass.
Strive on diligently.
Don’t give up.”
Gautama Buddha

“As you walk and eat and travel,
be where you are.
Otherwise you will miss most of your life.”
Gautama Buddha
“For the good of the many,
for the happiness of the many,
out of compassion for the world.”
Gautama Buddha
