middle way

A Quote by Adyashanti on buddha, middle way, enlightenment, nirvana, samsara, and extremes

The Buddha's insight into the middle way is not simply about a balance between extremes. This conventional understanding misses the deeper revelation of the middle way as being the very nature of unexcelled enlightenment. The middle way is an invitation to leap beyond nirvana and samsara and to realize the unborn Buddha mind right in the middle of everywhere.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on life, knowledge, simplicity, middle way, and middle course

Our life has a boundary but there is no boundary to knowledge.
To use what has a boundary to pursue what is limitless is dangerous;
with this knowledge, if we still go after knowledge, we will run into trouble.
Do not do what is good in order to gain praise.
If you do what is bad be sure to avoid the punishment.
Follow the Middle Course, for this is the way to keep yourself together,
to sustain your life, to care for your parents and to live for many years.

Chuang Tzu (c.360 BC - c. 275 BC)

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on reality, spiderweb, bird of reality, existance, emptiness, middle way, and dharma

The four catagories of existance, non-existance, both existance and non-existance, and neither existance nor non-existance, are spiderwebs among spiderwebs which can never take hold of the enormous bird of reality

A Quote by Henry Chang on tao and middle way

The intersection of the macro universe and the micro universe will create a gate, or a door. Lao Tzu called this "the door to all wonders". This is where yin and yang merge harmoniously. This is also called the Middle Way.
