expedient devices

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.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on expedient devices, unexcelled path, slight wisdom, signs, dharma, and bodhisattvas

Be it known that
Men of dull faculties and slight wisdom,
They who cling proudly to signs,
Cannot believe in this Dharma.  
Now I, joyfully and fearlessly,
In the midst of the bodhisattvas
Frankly casting aside my expedient devices,
Merely preach the Unexcelled Path.
