Samsara is Nirvana

Dr. Frederick Lenz, Zen Master Rama, quotes on buddhism, enlightenment, nirvana, zen, tantra, tibetan and mahayana.


Matter and spirit are not necessarily different in that they both come from the eternal light. Samsara and nirvana are really one.


Nirvana and samsara are one. This is nirvana. This is nirvana without realizing where you are.


Samsara is Nirvana. That is to say that everything in the universe is part of us. And we also are part of everything in the universe.


All beings exist ultimately in a condition of inner enlightenment. Enlightenment is in all things.


Nirvana is the other side, the source of all things, where all the aggregates come from, where the templates of infinity are.


Nirvana is the intelligent light that makes us and everything that we experience, from birth to death and from death to rebirth. It is also the same light that makes up everything beyond the cycle of birth, death and rebirth.


Nirvana creates all of the transient worlds and the beings that inhabit them out of its self. It sustains them, transforms them, and eventually draws them back into itself again.


Enlightenment exists in everything. Enlightenment is everything. It's around everything, it's through everything and it's beyond everything. It sounds more complicated than it is.


You are one with all things, all actions, inactions, and all spheres of possible being.  Nirvana is all there really is.


Wisdom is to see that there is no difference between samsara and nirvana. There is only one seamless, perfect reality.


Buddhism leads you to the awareness that all things are holy. Everything is holy. The dark has its own light, in other words.


The world is a grain of sand on the beach of Eternity. Eternity is a grain of sand on the beach of Infinity. The ocean of Nirvana connects both Eternity and Infinity without connecting them. Know this and you will be free.


Enlightenment exists within everything. There is nothing that can be separate from enlightenment.
