Wise Quotes From Milarepa

* My religion is to live and die without regret.
* Know emptiness, Be compassionate.
* Strong and healthy, who thinks of sickness until it strikes like lightning? Preoccupied with the world, who thinks of death, until it arrives like thunder?
All meditation must begin with arousing deep compassion. Whatever one does must emerge from an attitude of love and benefitting others.
* All worldly pursuits have but one unavoidable and inevitable end, which is sorrow; acquisitions end in dispersion; buildings in destruction; meetings in separation; births in death. Knowing this, one should, from the very first, renounce acquisitions and storing-up, and building, and meeting; and, faithful to the commands of an eminent Guru, set about realizing the Truth. That alone is the best of religious observances.
