Quotable quotes

from Reverend Heng Sure’s Dharma talk last night “Healing our Minds: Buddhism and Stress”

  • (On social engagement) This is the time when doing nothing is doing something.
  • Suffering (or stress) is reality, not pessimism.
  • (Buddhist) Precepts are an ethical commitment that gives you clarity on secular issues.
  • Religion should make kids think about things they’ve never thought of before.
  • Stress is frozen bodhi. Practice should melt it back into the sea of bodhi. You should enjoy practice.
  • A good teacher always gives you things you cannot do.
