Believe Nothing, Not Even the Top 10 Points that the Buddha Taught Us...

1. Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.

2. Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Just as the candle won't be shortened, one's happiness never decreases by being shared.

3. The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.

4. Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.

5. If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

6. Let us all be thankful for this day, for we have learned a great deal; if we have not learned a great deal, then at least we learned slightly; if we did not learn slightly, then at least we did not become sick; if we did become sick, then at least we did not die. So, let us all be thankful.

7. On life's journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him.

8. Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.

9. Desire is the cause for all your sickness and misery.

10. It is your mind that creates this world.

11. Believe nothing, Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings—that doctrine believe and cling to, and take it as your guide.
