The Parinirvāṇa Vihāra of Bodhi Nirvana

Just as a solid rock is not shaken by the storm, even so the wise are not affected by praise or blame.

~ The Dhammapada, Chapter 6, The Wise Man

The Five Treatises of Maitreya Buddha

"The disposition is empty of the adventitious stains,
Which are characterized by their total separateness.
But it is not empty of the unsurpassed qualities,
Which have the character of total inseparability."

- Maitreya, Uttaratantra Shastra, I, 155

The Heart Sūtra of Chenrezig

“In whom there is no sympathy for living beings: know him as an outcast.”

— The Buddha, Suppa Nipata

The Republic of Zhen

This is truth that cannot be doubted.
Say it so:

gone over,
gone fully over.
So be it!

-from, The Heart Sutra

The Republic of Zhen

Flow with whatever may happen and let your mind be free. Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.
