Buddha Quote

Thursday July 29, 2021

Help Yourself
When you really feel the need to seek refuge, we must always keep
in our minds that the Buddha can't help us without us helping
ourselves first. The phenomenon of merely praying for help is
rampant, especially with students during the examination periods,
without realising this simple and subtle truth-we are our best
help, only if we try. It is dangerous not to realise that, for
then, not only is the problem left unsolved, we might start to
shift the blame to those we expect help to come from. The
Bodhisattvas are always around but we should realise that it is
best that we be our own Bodhisattvas-is that not the truest
meaning of self-reliance in Buddhism? The Buddha did not become a
Buddha by prayer!

We offer Daily Buddha Quotes & Meditations for a more peaceful life. The quotes of Buddha you see
here are interpretations of Buddist concepts. As we know, there are many Buddhas, as well as many incarnations
of Buddha. The quotes of Buddha we publish here may not be exact words, but perhaps they are -- there may be
an incarnation of the Buddha right next to you, but you haven't recognized the Enlightened One yet!
