Live your life. Do the dishes. Do the laundry. Take your kids to kindergarten. Raise your children and your grandchildren. Take care of the community in which you live. Make all of that your path, and follow your path with heart.

— Dipa Ma

The most vibrant Dipa Ma quotes that are simple and will have a huge impact on you

It is important to distinguish between sense-pleasure and sense-desire.

There is nothing wrong with sense-pleasure. Pleasure and pain are part of our human experience. Sense-desire, on the other hand, is the grasping at pleasure or the avoidance of pain. This is what creates suffering-grasping and avoidance.


If everything is noted, all your emotional difficulties will disappear.

When you feel happy, don't get involved in happiness. When you feel sad, don't get involved with it. Whatever comes, don't worry, just be aware of it.


The whole path of mindfulness is this: Whatever you are doing, be aware of it.
