Unexcelled Path

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on tread the path, path, saved, dharmas, variety, purpose, buddha, buddha-body, and unexcelled path

I, ever knowing the living beings
Who tread the Path and those who do not
In response to those who may be saved
Preach to them a variety of dharmas,
Each time having this thought:
'How may I cause the beings
To contrive to enter the Unexcelled Path
and quickly to perfect the Buddha-body?'

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. 

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)
