"All beings are from the very beginning Buddhas. It is like water and ice: Apart from water, no ice, outside living beings, no Buddhas. Not knowing it is near they seek it afar, what a pity!"
"When you have found some joy that remains - circumstances change but it abides - then you are certainly coming closer to Buddhahood."
"You are a Buddha. But remember you are not a Buddha in any special sense. Everybody is - So don't take it in an egoistic sense that "I" am a Buddha. Don't make it ambitious, don't go on an ambition trip. All is Buddha. Life is Buddha, being is Buddha-hood, existence is Buddha-hood."
"All that you need is just to be silent and listen to existence. "There is no need of any religion, there is no need of any God, there is no need of any priesthood, there is no need of any organization."
"The whole world is a cyclone. But once you have found the center the cyclone disappears. This nothingness is the ultimate peak of consciousness."
"The intelligent person depends on his own insight; he trusts his own being. He loves and respects himself."
"All that this world needs is a good cleansing of the heart of all the inhibitions of the past. And laughter and tears can do both. Tears will take out all the agony that is hidden inside you and laughter will take all that is preventing your ecstasy. Once you have learned the art you will be immensely surprised."
"Out of that aloneness - the experience of God. There is no other way; there has never been any and there is never going to "be.
"Life is not a tragedy, it is a comedy. To be alive means to have a sense of humor."
"Meditation will bring you sensitivity, a great sense of belonging to the world. It is our world - the stars are ours, and we are not foreigners here. We are part of it, we are the heart of it. And this sensitivity will create new friendships for you - friendships with trees, with birds, with animals, with mountains, with rivers, with oceans, with stars. Life becomes richer as love grows."
"If you are absolutely without mind, just pure consciousness, time stops completely, disappears, leaving no trace behind."
"If you meditate, sooner or later you will come upon love. If you meditate deeply, sooner or later you will start feeling a tremendous love arising in you that you have never known before. You want a love which is born out of meditation, not born out of the mind.""Aloneness is a flower, a lotus blooming in your heart. Aloneness is positive, aloneness is health."
