Wisdom Bite #12: The Buddha on How To See The World

One of my favorite quotes from Gautama Buddha comes from a text known in Englilsh as the Diamond Sutra.  I like to remember it when I start taking things too seriously.   Interestingly it’s the same teaching of Advaita Vedanta and The Course in Miracles.

”  Regard this fleeting world like this:

Like stars fading and vanishing at dawn,

like bubbles on a fast moving stream,

like morning dewdrops evaporating on blades of grass,

like a candle flickering in a strong wind,

echos, mirages and phantoms,

hallucinations, and like a dream.”
