Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

This sentence is about itself, but since there is no such thing as independent self-existence, this sentence is also about everything else, or from another perspective perhaps about nothing whatsoever; in addition, it is certainly a very long sentence, and thus poorly constructed, like most or perhaps all things empty of self.

Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2.
Hamlet, in this soliloquy, is asking a rhetorical question of himself and the audience. Essentially, he is saying, "Is it better to face one's problems and issues head-on, or simply lie down and let nature take its course?" This soliloquy is one of the most memorable in all of Shakespeare.

So hm!

The quote actually isn't from the nunnery soliloquy ("To be or not to be", etc...), which appears in Act 3, Scene 1. This quote is from a dialog between Hamlet and Polonius.

“I have lots of things to teach you now, in case we ever meet, concerning the message that was transmitted to me under a pine tree in North Carolina on a cold winter moonlit night. It said that Nothing Ever Happened, so don't worry. It's all like a dream. Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don't know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever. Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, which was taught in immense milky way soft cloud innumerable worlds long ago and not even at all. It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity. It is perfect. We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea. That which passes into everything is one thing. It's a dream already ended. There's nothing to be afraid of and nothing to be glad about. I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space. Do you think the emptiness of space will ever crumble away? Mountains will crumble, but the emptiness of space, which is the one universal essence of mind, the vast awakenerhood, empty and awake, will never crumble away because it was never born.”
-Jack Kerouac

Eh, pretty good there, Ti Jean. A little heavy on the One Mind, but alright.
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”

The Supreme Way is not difficult
If only you do not pick and choose.
Neither love nor hate,
And you will clearly understand.
Be off by a hair,
And you are as far apart
As heaven from earth.

The other people on this thread have been polite, so I’ll say it; you're *** . Would you say what you just said to someone boarding a train to auschwitz in the 1940s? Then don’t say it here. Take your *** elsewhere.
