One should always strive to set one’s mind on the right path- the path that leads to the Truth. And truth is a name of the one true God.

Gospel of Buddha by Paul Carus

Buddha says:

Quote
“Is not man an organism of many aggregates? Are we not
composed of various attributes? Man consists of the material
form, of sensation, of thought, of dispositions, and, lastly, of
understanding. That which men call the ego when they say ‘I
am’ is not an entity behind the attributes; it originates by their
co-operation. There is mind; there is sensation and thought,
and there is truth; and truth is mind when it walks in the path of
righteousness
. But there is no separate ego-soul outside or
behind the thought of man. He who believes that the ego is a
distinct being has no correct conception of things. The very
search for the atman is wrong; it is a wrong start and it will lead
you in a false direction. 6″ Unquote

Quran says:

[1:6] Guide us in the right path —
[1:7] The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.

One Response to “Buddha: Truth- mind when it walks in the path of righteousness”

  1. Hank Kimball Says:

    Yes, man doesn’t possess a soul; according to our Bible, man IS a soul. Genesis 2:7 states : “…………. to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul.” Levitcus 17:14 “For the soul of every sort of flesh is its blood by the soul in it.” Genesis 9:4 “Only flesh with its soul—its blood—YOU​ must not eat.”
    The ego amounts to the actions and thinking that dominate a human because of the desire to belong. Ego is what we think others think of us. Self -esteem is what we think of ourselves.
    It is when we place the value of what others think of us before the needs of others or even ourselves that we become ego-centered or self-centered. Some argue that there is such a thing as a ‘healthy’ ego. I just don’t believe it is the ego they are referring to. When a man can place character building before comfort he has come a long way in true christian conduct.
