SHARE YOUR WISDOM What Buddhist aphorism, motto, or pithy teaching do you find most helpful, and why? How do you express your Buddhist values through political, social, or environmental activity? Send your answer, photo, and location to firstname.lastname@example.org “Things are not as they appear, nor are they otherwise”—Lankavatara Sutra This has long been my favorite pithy teaching, so much so that I had it made into a bumper sticker, offering fellow travelers something to ponder...or at least a few moments of confusion to enjoy. —Andrew Palmer, Colorado Springs, CO “Once we recognize emptiness, the recognition itself is wisdom; therefore the duality dissolves”—Mingyur Rinpoche —Carolyn Pearl “No mud, no lotus” —Thich Nhat Hanh —Elizabeth Colwell, Channel Islands “Form is emptiness. Emptiness is form”—Heart Sutra —Betty Gross, Austin, TX “The bad news is we’re falling through space. The good news is there is no ground”—Chögyam Trungpa This is one of my favorites because a central theme of my life has been looking for ground, a feeling of belonging. It is when I let go of all these notions—of place, of self, of other—that I remember the feeling of “home.” —Carla Friedman, Taos, NM “No distraction, no work, no control. Just rest.” —Christopher Luard, Malaysia P.B .S .: Pause. Breathe. Smile. I know it’s simple, but that’s why I like it. —Debi Starr Pema and the Pema Chödrön Foundation support: THE BUDDHIST MONASTIC TRADITION Pema is dedicated to help guide and support her home monastery, Gampo Abbey, in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
