I am of the nature to experience old age, I cannot escape old age. I am of the nature to experience illness, I cannot escape illness. I am of the nature to experience death, I cannot escape death. I am of the nature to experience loss of all that is dear to me, I cannot escape loss. I am the owner of my actions. They are the ground of my being, whatever actions I perform, for good or ill, I will become their heir.

— Buddha

When there is an ā€œIā€, there is a perception of other, And from the ideas of self and other come attachment and aversion, As a result of getting wrapped up in these, All possible faults come into being.

Just as the great oceans have but one taste, the taste of salt, so too there is but one taste fundamental to all true teachings of the way, and this is the taste of freedom.

A dewdrop sticks not to a lotus leaf, A lotus flower is untouched by water. The same way wise clings to nothing at all, Not to the seen, the heard or the sensed.
