The teachings of Buddha in one sentence

“The Buddha once said that the core message of all his teachings could be summed up in one sentence. On the off chance that that is so, it might not be a bad idea to commit that sentence to memory. You never know when it might come in handy, when it might make sense to you, even though it didn’t the moment before. That sentence is: ‘Nothing is to be clung to as I, me, or mine.’ In other words, NO ATTACHMENTS – especially to fixed ideas of yourself and who you are.”

~ from Arriving at your own Door by Jon Kabat-Zinn
