Buddha Meditation Journal

The text in this journal is a modernized version of very ancient verses originally attributed to the Buddha. The Buddha didn't mince words when telling people what they needed to know to reach happiness and these simple verses are very dear to the hearts of Buddhists everywhere.

How to Use this Journal

Of course, you can use this journal any way you like! You can scribble limericks, keep grocery lists, or review old television shows.

But! You can use each page as a “thought for the day” and then ignore the quotes and use the lined pages as a record of your daily journey.

You can doodle on the left page under the quote or you can cut pictures out of magazines and glue them there.
You can use the quotes as writing prompts.

The Buddha once said “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. ... Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. ... But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

You have permission to argue with the quotes. You can analyze them and see how they fit with your life or not. You can modify them into something more suitable to you.

You can do a mix of all of the above.

This is your book.
