Eastern philosophy originated almost simultaneously with the philosophy of Ancient Greece and represents a large layer of world philosophy. No wonder they say: the East is a delicate matter. This is reflected in everything: in the way of life, mentality, culture, spiritual values. We have collected pearls of oriental wisdom, as ancient as pearls and as expensive as a diamond.
A word that is plucked from the heart goes straight to the heart, and that slips from the tongue does not go further than the ears.

Anyone who studies astrology will sink into heresy; one who practices alchemy will be mired in poverty; and the one who studies law will be mired in a lie.
The word that you have retained is your servant; the word that has escaped you is your master.

Those who can blush cannot have a black heart.
Victory over the weak is like defeat.

There can be no greater happiness than bringing happiness to the unhappy.

Appetite comes with the first bite, and quarrels come with the first word.
The only good thing is that anxiety, thanks to which we subsequently find peace.

Consider a true friend the person who removes stones and thorns from your path.
In the morning when the sun rises, let it rise in you too.
Take care of people, after meeting with whom something light and joyful settles in your soul.
There is a beauty over which years have no power – this is the beauty of the heart.
What we nourish blooms in us, this is the eternal law of nature.
