Examine Yourself From Every Side


“Examine thus yourself from every side.

Note harmful thoughts and every futile striving.

Thus it is that heroes in the Bodhisattva path

Apply the remedies to keep a steady mind.”

–Shantideva (Indian Buddhist Scholar at Nalanda University, 8th Century)              

“The Way of the Bodhisattva: A Translation of the Bodhicharyavatara (Shambhala Classics)” (Shantideva)
