Via Daily Dharma / The Heart Holds Two Truths

Take refuge in the dharma when you’re hurting; gain perspective; expand your capacity for empathy; uncover the biases you carry within yourself; and also see all arisings as empty. And then, see with complexity, and hold both conventional and ultimate truths in your heart.

—Jay Michaelson, "Retreat or Fight? Both are Right."

Via Daily Dharma / Not-blaming

When you check your own mind properly, you stop blaming others for your problems. You recognize that your mistaken actions come from your own defiled, deluded mind.

—Lama Thubten Yeshe, "Your Mind is Your Religion"

Via Daily Dharma / Embrace Each Error

Anyone has the right to be a Buddhist, no matter. There is no need to be afraid of having faults, because knowing we have them can help us to improve.

—Master Sheng-Yen, "How to Be Faultless"
