Zen Moments

Postby Zen Moments » Wed Mar 11, 2009 4:25 pm

Hello from Zen Moments - a collection of beautiful and inspiring true stories.

Zen Moments are the small things that make a huge difference…

Zen Moments happen at times when we stop pushing to try to get somewhere else, when we open our hearts and minds to the present moment, to that which is right in front of us…

Zen Moments are the moments of magic, when extraordinary awareness meets ordinary situations - moments of looking with fresh eyes…

Such moments can be beautiful, inspiring, transforming, haunting, and can linger with us long after they have passed.

We hope you will find beauty and inspiration in these pages: http://www.zenmoments.org/

HI
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
