buddhas

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on buddhas, world-honored ones, knowledge, insight, purity, understanding, enter the path, and why buddhas come

The Buddhas, the World-Honored Ones, for one great cause alone appear in the world. The Buddhas, the World-Honored Ones, appear in the world because they wish to cause the beings to hear of the Buddha's knowledge and insight and thus enable them to gain purity. They appear in the world because they wish to demonstrate the Buddha's knowledge and insight to the beings. They appear in the world because they wish to cause the beings to understand. They appear in the world because they wish to cause the beings to enter into the path of the Buddha's knowledge and insight.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on buddhas, you can become a buddha, doubt, uncertainty, teachers, heart, joy, expedient devices, tools, possibilities, and potential

All of you knowing now,
Tthat the Buddhas, the Teachers of the Ages,
In accord with what is peculiarly appropriate, have recourse to expedient devices,
Need have no more doubts or uncertainties.
Your hearts shall give rise to great joy,
Since you know that you yourselves
Shall become Buddhas.

A Quote by Shinjo Ito on buddhas, teachings, dharma bodies, spirits, sangha, and spiritual community

Buddhas continue to live on through their teachings as dharma bodies. Their spirits become manifest in the sangha (spiritual community) where their teachings are passed on.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on heaven, money, pleasure, senses, suffering, craving, elimination, desire, and buddhas

There is no satisfying the senses, not even with a shower of money. "The senses are of slight pleasure and really suffering." When a wise man has realised this, he takes no pleasure, as a disciple of the Buddhas, even in the pleasures of heaven. Instead he takes pleasure in the elimination of craving.
