Results from the Quotations of Joseph Campbell
- "All life is sorrowful" is the first Buddhist saying, and so it is. It wouldn’t be life if there weren’t temporality involved, which is sorrow – loss, loss, loss. You’ve got to say yes to life and see it as magnificent this way; for this is surely the way God intended it
- In the Buddhist view, that is to say, what is keeping us out of the garden is not the jealousy or wrath of any god, but our own instinctive attachment to what we take to be our lives.
- Mythology is not a lie; mythology is poetry, it is metaphorical. It has been well said that mythology is the penultimate truth –– penultimate because the ultimate cannot be put into words. It is beyond words, beyond images, beyond that bounding rim of the Buddhist Wheel of Becoming. Mythology pitches the mind beyond that rim, to what can be known but not told.
- Nirvāṇa literally means “blown out”; the image is that once one has realized one’s unity with what is called the Buddha mind — this is the Buddhist conception of Brahman — then one’s individual ego is extinguished like a candle flame, and one becomes one with the great solar light.
- One characteristic of Buddhism, in contrast to Christianity, is that Buddhism does not eliminate deities. Rather, they are seen as manifestations of Buddha-consciousness in the mode of a given culture and are kept. When the MacArthur people took a census of religious beliefs in Japan, they found that there were more religious believers than there were people, because everyone was both a Shinto and a Buddhist.
- There is one phrase in Finnegans Wake that seems to me to epitomize the whole sense of Joyce. He says, "Oh Lord, heap mysteries upon us, but entwine our work with laughter low." And this is the sense of the Buddhist bodhisattva: joyful participation in the sorrows of the world.
