Guanyin - the Bodhisattva of Compassion - plays a prominent role in Chinese Buddhist traditions as a goddess of mercy. As per usual, I'm swooning over the patterns on this painted ceiling. 🎨 Picture taken during a visit to the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery in Sha Tin... a site more than worth the long MTR ride.

Concentration can be improved by sitting meditation, a way of cultivation, in which letting go is indispensable. As a beginner, you may be eager to concentrate your mind, but it turns out that the harder you try, the more distracted your mind becomes. Why? Because there is rivalry. The strong desire of calming down actually pushes you further away from calmness. Therefore, the desire to calm down should be the first thing to let go in sitting meditation.

To practice Buddhism, we do not wait until our next life,but start now. Only when we make this life better, can we expect a better future life.

Look further into the future rather than stare at what is in front of you. Broaden the mind rather than think only about yourself.

“A person with desires falls prey to his turbulent mind and finds no tranquility even in a mountain temple; a person without desires enjoys inner peace and stays serene even in a bustling downtown. ”

The real concentration is a state in which the mind remains undisturbed, discerning, bright and tranquil in any circumstances.

Samma ditthi, or right view, is characterized by wisdom. Right view is the foremost thing in cultivation, which can be compared to our eyes. Imagine how dangerous it is for a blind person to venture around. That’s why we need right view to guide us in learning Buddhism.

Overcoming jealousy requires us to have a broad mind, and to understand, accept and embrace the efforts and success of others.We should not be impeded by our own perceptions and personal gains, or to be competitive with others.
