A Quote by Lin Chi on buddhahood, fool, laugh, wisdom, and ordinariness

When it's time to get dressed, put on your clothes.
When you must walk, then walk.
When you must sit, then sit.
Just be your ordinary self in ordinary life,
unconcerned in seeking for Buddhahood.
When you're tired, lie down.
The fool will laugh at you
but the wise man will understand.

Lin Chi

A Quote by vow of the bodhisattva on bodhisattva vow, buddhahood, misery, wisdom, compassion, joyous effort, buddha, dharma, and sangha

With the wish to free all beings
until we reach full awakening
I will always go for refuge
To the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha

Today, in the presence of the enlightened ones
Inspired by Wisdom, Compassion and Joyous Effort
I generate the mind aspiring to full buddhahood
For the Well-being of all Sentient beings.

For as long as space endures
and as long as sentient beings remain
until then, may I too, abide
to dispel the misery of the world.
