Invataturile lui Buddha

On life’s journey

Faith is nourishment,

Virtuous deeds are a shelter,

Wisdom is the light by day

And right mindfulness is the protection by night

If a man lives a pure life noting can destroy him;

If he has conquered greed nothing can limit is freedom.


Believe in nothing on the faith of traditions,

Even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places.

Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it.

Do not believe the faith on the sages of the past.

Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you.

Believe noting on the sole authority of your masters and priests.

After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto. 


One of his students asked Buddha: “Are you the messiah?”

“No”, answered Buddha.

“Then are you a healer?”

“No”, Buddha replied.

“Then are you a teacher?” the student persisted.

“No. I am not a teacher.”

“Then what are you?” Asked the student, exasperated.

“I am awake”, Buddha replied. 


Live in joy, in love,

Even among those who hate.

Live in joy, in health,

Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, in peace,

Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still.

Free from fear and attachment,

Know the sweet joy of living in the way.


If you want others to be happy,

Practice compassion.

If you want to be happy,

Practice compassion.


As the Buddha was dying, Ananda asked

who would be their teacher after death.

He replied to his disciple:

“Be lamps into yourselves.

Be refuges into yourselves.

Take yourself no external refuge.

Hold fast to the truth of the lamp.

Hold fast to the truth of a refuge.

Look not for a refuge in anyone besides yourselves.

And those, Ananda, who either now or after I am dead,

Shall be a lamp into themselves,

Shall betake themselves as no external refuge,

But holding fast to the truth as their lamp,

Holding fast to the truth as their refuge,

Shall not look for refuge in anyone else besides themselves,

It is they who shall reach to the very topmost height,

But they must be anxious to learn.”


As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery.

We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.

The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear, suspicion, while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsability, are the sources of peace and happiness.

Fill your mind with compassion.


Be awake

Love yourself and be awake -

Today, tomorrow, always.

First, establish yourself in the way,

then teach others,

and so defeat sorrow.

To straighten the crooked

you must first do a harder thing - 

Straighten yourself.

You are the only master. Who else?

Subdue yourself,

and discover your master.


Fools wait for a lucky day

But every day is a lucky day

For an industrious man.


We are what we tink.

And what we are arises from our thoughts.

With our thoughts, we make our world.


Pay no attention to the faults of others,

Things done or left undone by others.

Consider only what by oneself is done or left undone.


The secret of happiness lies in the mind’s release from worldly ties.

    Ce te-a determinat sa te convertesti la Budism? :) Poate nu vrei sa raspunzi la intrebare si te inteleg daca e asa.

    E o poveste mai lunga si mai degraba un proces intreg, decat o simpla decizie de moment. Eu nu am fost niciodata credincioasa. de mica refuzam sa-mi spun rugaciunile si sa merg la biserica pentru ca nu reusea nimeni sa-mi dea un raspuns edificator asupra motivelor pentru care as vrea sa fac asta. Ulterior, am devenit atee si mare admiratoare a lui Nietzsche. Se intampla in liceu. Am facut cunostinta cu filosofia si am dat si asa am dat peste filosofia budista in care am inceput sa gasesc raspunsuri, la intrebarile pe care mi le puneam si nu gaseam inainte nici un raspuns. Poate a contat si plusul de experienta, dar am simtit ca pur si simplu rezonez foarte bine cu acea gandire. Asa ca am aderat la ea. :)
    Singura chestie care ma irita un pic de cand sunt budista este ploaia de mesaje, telefoane si urari pe mess de pasti si de sarbatori crestine. dupa ce ca sunt impersonale, date dintr-o “obligatie” mascata de “politete”, multe si clise-istice, mai sunt si complet inutile :))

    Si eu refuzam de multe ori sa imi spun rugaciunea de seara cand eram mica sau sa merg la biserica. Tata incerca mereu sa ma convinga ca e bine si ca trebuie mers la biserica. Niciodata nu mi-au placut slujbele ortodoxe si strabunica mea a incercat sa ma creasca dupa credinta evanghelica spre marea disperarea a nasilor mei. Candva m-am hotarat sa ma confirm la religia evanghelica. Nici acum nu sunt pe deplin multumita, de rugat nu ma rog (poate doar inaintea unui eveniment important), iar la biserica nu am mai fost (la o slujba) de vreo 2-3 ani. :-|

    Cunosc sentimentul :-| Totusi, eu ma duc de Inviere la biserica, evident, nu pentru mine (pentru mine nu inseamna absolut nimic chestia aia decat… ies pe afara la 12 noaptea si ma plimb cu o lumanare in mana :)) , dar Cata merge si ma duc si eu cu el :) daca inseamna ceva pt el… fac si eu un efort

  5. On June 8th, 2009 at 2:18 pm Simina Says:

    O singura data am fost la Inviere acum vreo 2 sau 3 ani cu prietenul meu de pe atunci (am facut si eu un efort :-P ) si am fost si in biserica. Stateam cu frica in san ca nu cumva sa-mi dea careva foc din greseala cu lumanarea. Erau 10 oameni pe metru patrat in mitropolie. A fost prima si ultima data cand am fost la Inviere. Dar totusi, nu ar strica sa merg o data la biserica evanghelica de Pasti :-D

  6. On June 8th, 2009 at 2:23 pm Cami Achim Says:

    ;)) mie mi-era frica sa nu-mi dea careva foc la par

  7. On June 8th, 2009 at 2:26 pm Simina Says:

    Pentru par imi faceam si eu cele mai mari griji :-D Pe vremea aia era si mai lung si usor inflamabil :))

  8. On June 8th, 2009 at 2:38 pm Cami Achim Says:

    Eu il am lung si des. Pericol maxim :))

  9. On June 8th, 2009 at 5:34 pm Simina Says:

    Cand eram mica era luuuung si deees… Aveam o pleata superba, inca o mai am pe undeva =)) Oricum, imi ador culoarea parului si toti ma intreaba daca sunt vopsita :-|

  10. On June 8th, 2009 at 6:26 pm Cami Achim Says:

    Inca o mai ai pe undeva? =)) Si eu aveam o pleata superba si lunga. Pana intr-o zi cand m-am dus la o coafeza recomandata de o “prietena” ca sa-mi tund varfurile si m-am trezit cu parul pana la umeri! Inca ma chinui sa mi-l cresc la loc :(

  11. On June 8th, 2009 at 6:35 pm Simina Says:

    O mai am pe undeva, da. A insistat mama sa o pastram =)) Am fost si eu o data sa ma tund la un nene recomandat de o prietena si i-am zis sa taie vreo 2-3 cm. Ei bine, m-am trezit cu parul scurt, pana la umeri :-| Nu avea nici o forma, orice i-as fi facut statea tot aiurea. :-| De atunci imi este frica sa ma tund :-D

  12. On June 8th, 2009 at 6:41 pm Cami Achim Says:

    Vai, avem aceeasi experienta traumatizanta si fobie de tuns :)) sa nu-mi zici ca si tu ai o coada impletita pusa la pastrare undeva prin casa =))

  13. On June 8th, 2009 at 6:43 pm Simina Says:

    O coada impletita am pastrat undeva prin casa :))

  14. On June 8th, 2009 at 6:45 pm Cami Achim Says:

    :)) si eu

  15. On June 8th, 2009 at 6:47 pm Simina Says:

    :)) Ar trebui sa ii spun mamei sa o caute sa imi aduc aminte de vremurile respective cand inca ma mai puteam lauda cu o pleata deasa :-P

  16. On June 8th, 2009 at 6:48 pm Cami Achim Says:

    Super, Buddha e genial.
    Buddhismul nu are de ce sa fie o religie organizata.
    Vazusem nu demult o imagine geniala, cu trasaturile ce caracterizeaza mai multe religii.
    La Buddhisti era doar Happy : ) )

    nu ma mira :) se potriveste

    Imi pare bine ca v-am gasit. Vroiam doar sa va salut si sa va spun ca imi place ceea ce tocmai am citit

    @Horoscop: merci :) te mai astept.
