Ascent

“Ascent” | Anthony Satori

“Here I cry out, arms raised: ‘Both wealth and pleasure spring from dharma, so why is dharma not followed?’ Not for pleasure, not for fear, not for greed should one ever abandon dharma — not even to save one’s life. Dharma is eternal; happiness and misery are not eternal. The living self is eternal; the body through which it lives is not.”

— The Mahabharata

That Which Is

“Bathed in Light” | Anthony Satori

“My mind withdrew its thoughts from experience, extracting itself from the contradictory throng of sensuous images, that it might find out what that light was wherein it was bathed. And thus, with the flash of one hurried glance, it attained to the vision of That Which Is.”

— Saint Augustine

Inner Calm

“Peaceful Cottage” | Anthony Satori

“To meditate means to go home to yourself. Then you know how to take care of the things that are happening inside you, and you know how to take care of the things that happen around you.”

— Thich Nhat Hanh
