From Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind by Suzuki Roshi:
"The open mind, the attitude that includes both doubt and possibility, the ability to see
things always as fresh and new.
It is needed in all aspects of life. Beginner's mind is the practice of Zen mind."
From The Big Questions by Lama Surya Das:
"Buddhism is an inside job. When I become clear, everything is clear.
With enlightenment, everything changes, yet nothing changes; we discover what has been there all along, obscured by our conflicting passions, emotions, illusions and attachments. Transforming oneself transforms the world. To save one soul is to save the whole world. No one can do all the good that the world needs, but the world needs all the good that you and I can do."
