From the Dhammapada

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
The deed develops into habit;
and habit hardens into character;
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings

The Refuge Prayer

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

I go for refuge in the Buddha, the enlightened teacher; I commit myself to enlightenment;

I go for refuge in the Dharma, the spiritual teachings; I commit myself to the truth as it is.

I go for refuge in the Sangha, the spiritual community; I commit myself to living the enlightened life.
