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 Vladimir Antonov on love, teachings, wisdom, god, and jesus christ

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I have become as sounding brass… And though I have prophecies, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so as to move mountains, and do not have love, I am nothing. And though I give out all my goods to feed the poor, and though I deliver my body to be burned, and have not love, I am profited nothing.

Love has patience, is kind; love is not envious, is not vain, is not puffed up; does not behave indecently, does not seek her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil. Love does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth. Love quietly covers all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails, though prophecies will be abolished and tongues will cease…

A Quote by Vladimir Antonov on gospel, love, god, teachings, wisdom, and faith

45. Faith receives. Love gives.

One must not receive without faith. One must not give without love.

Therefore, in order to receive, we believe, and in order to give truly, we love.

But if one gives without love, he does not benefit from such giving.

48. A pearl, even if it is cast down into the mud, is not despised. And if one covers it with balsam, it does not

become more valuable. But it is always valuable to its owner.

It is the same with the Sons of God: wherever They may be, They are still of value to Their Father.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on teachings, tao, heart, and understanding

My teachings are easy to understand
and easy to put into practice.
Yet your intellect will never grasp them,
and if you try to practice them, you'll fail.

My teachings are older than the world.
How can you grasp their meaning?

If you want to know me,
look inside your heart.

From all kinds of flowers,
Seek teachings everywhere,
Like a deer that finds
A quiet place to graze,
Seek Seclusion to digest
All you have gathered. . .
