Examples of buddha in a Sentence

  1. Seán O'Casey:

    Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, great as each may be, their highest comfort given to the sorrowful is a cordial introduction into another's woe. Sorrow's the great community in which all men born of woman are members at one time or another.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Dancing with your demons empowers you, and surely enables you to reclaim your lost powers. It takes tremendous courage to face your demons, invite them to tea, dance with them, reach an impasse, and finally, conquer them for ever. That’s exactly what Buddha did, while seeking Enlightenment under Bodhi tree, after realizing that fighting his demons off was getting nowhere. You must develop courage to face your demons, such as anger, fear, greed, guilt, jealousy, lack of self-esteem, undue pride, and anything that is stopping you from reaching Perfection. You must bravely enter the territory that many fear to tread. Dance with your demons, and by God’s grace you will succeed.

  3. John Steinbeck, The Pastures of Heaven, p 56:

    After the bare requisites of living and reproducing, man wants most to leave some record of himself, a proof, perhaps, that he has really existed. He leaves his proof on wood, on stone, or on the lives of other people. This deep desire exists in everyone, from the boy who scribbles on a wall to the Buddha who etches his image in the race mind. Life is so unreal. I think that we seriously doubt that we exist and go about trying to prove that we do.

  4. Monika Kiss-Stefan:

    The Buddha statue belongs to a Dutch private collector and when he bought it, he had no idea what it was hiding inside.

  5. Diane Frolov:

    What is it about genus arboretum that socks us in the figurative solar plexus We see a logging truck go cruising down the road, stacked with a bunch of those fresh-cut giants, we feel like we lost a brother. Next thing you know, we're in The Brick, we're flopping money down on the bar. Wood. We're under a roof. Wood. We're walking the floors. Wood. Grabbing a pool cue. That's wood. Our friends in the forest carry a set of luggage from the mythical baggage carousel. Tree of life, tree of knowledge, family tree, Buddha's Bodhi tree. Page one of life, in the beginning. Genesis 322. Adam and Eve. They're kicking back in the garden of Eden and boom, they get an eviction notice. Why is that Lest they should also take of the tree of life, eat and live forever. A definitive Yahweh no-no. Be good to yourself, go out and plant a wet one on a tree.
