The term ‘guru’ comes from Sanskrit origin to mean a teacher with a very specialized knowledge, which provides more than simply teaching but includes mentorship, counseling, inspiration and an exemplary of life. Gurus are usually those who have, in a sense, traveled a spiritual journey to the point where they may lead other in their journey to self-awakening and spirituality.

– Thomas Merton


It is a puzzling thing. The truth knocks on the door and you say, “Go away, I’m looking for the truth”… and so it goes away.

– Robert M. Pirsig


The whole created universe is made of living energy that moves and oscillates and shines. This boundless store of restless cosmic energy has terrible destructive power. It’s like an upraised thunderbolt: to petty ego’s fragile life, identified with little body, sense and mind.

But if, transcending petty ego, all the world is known as life – as only living energy – then how can death arise at all? For one who knows the world like this, as only life, there is no death. In truth, there’s only deathlessness.

– From the Upanishads


You’ve traveled up ten thousand steps in search of the truth.
So many days in the archives, copying, copying.
The gravity of the Tang and the profundity of the Sung make heavy baggage.
Here! I’ve picked you a bunch of wild flowers.
Their meaning is the same but they’re much easier to carry.

– Hsu Yun


It does not appear or disappear.
It is not born and does not die.
It is neither constructed nor raised up,
Neither made nor produced.

It is neither sitting nor lying,
Neither walking nor standing still,
Neither moving nor turning over,
Neither at rest nor idle.

It does not advance or retreat,
Knows not safety or danger,
Neither right nor wrong.
It is neither virtuous nor improper.

It is neither this nor that,
Neither going nor coming.

– From the Lotus Sutra
