“Sincere Longing”  |  Anthony Satori

“Only the wise know just where predestination ends and free will begins.  Meanwhile, you must keep on doing your best, according to your own clearest understanding.  You must long for freedom as the drowning man longs for air.  Without sincere longing, you will never find God.”

— Paramahansa Yogananda

“Calm”  |  Anthony Satori

“The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful.  If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness.  But if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even in the very best conditions.”

— Kelsang Gyatso

“Steel Horse”  |  Anthony Satori

“The Buddha, the Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain or in the petals of a flower.  To think otherwise is to demean the Buddha — which is to demean oneself.”

— Robert M. Persig,  Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
