"Other matters, profound, hard to see, hard to understand, peaceful, excellent, beyond mere thought, subtle, to be understood only by the wise... about which those who would praise me would rightly speak"

Ratings and Reviews

Very suspicious. Not trustworthy. Don’t download


I was going to get this But every time I hit free trail or anything it says “cannot connect to App Store” it will literally force you to do the payment options. However. It’s not trustworthy to even try that.

I also wanted to point out my friend got this and she showed me it before she deleted it. It’s DEFINITELY not worth the how much they want you to pay. It’s just simple quotes and stuff you can easily get online or on another app for free.
And the fact they are even making you pay is absolutely wrong and disrespectful to the teachings of Buddha, especially with how EXPENSIVE they have it. I agree with the other reviews on here. It’s horrible. You can easily find other ways to keep the app alive like OTHER apps do.

Also the $7 a week is why my friend deleted and she also hated that she couldn’t just cancel it so easily. Even after deleting and cancling in the App Store Settings it charged her. She had to go through her bank to get it stopped.

Honestly it seems like a scam. Just like the rest of their apps. But if it’s not then they REALLY need to find a better way in doing this. Cause no one is gonna join unless they are absolutely stupid.

Being charged when I deleted it!!!!


I’m so annoyed to find I’m being charged $7.99 for an app that I accidentally, and apparently purchased!!!! I deleted it after looking at it and realizing it is nothing at all that I am interested in PAYING for. I’ve looked and can’t seem to find a convenient place to delete this membership or whatever is allowing this scammer company to continually charge my bank account. There’s a place to contact them, and I entered the address....nothing comes up!! DO NOT EVEN LOAD THIS CRAP APP ONTO YOUR PHONE! It’s apparently a SCAM!! I’ve reported it to Apple. I want OUT!!! I want this canceled immediately, yet they make it near impossible to do so. I don’t want to give it any stars but that’s not an option....I had to give at least one. So annoyed.....

Dear fellow Buddhist, We are very sorry - for future reference, for any iOS app, simply deleting it from a device does not cancel subscriptions (for example because users may want to keep them on another device), only unsubscribing through Settings does. Contact us at buddhism [at] and we can provide a step-by-step guide. Best, Buddha Quotes App Team

This is not what my master taught me.


As most know, the Buddha did not charge for spiritual instruction - he took voluntary donations. He also didn't favour established religious centres, perhaps because he knew the worldly corruption that it can bring. In the modern world it is difficult to follow that example - but it can be done if we are not following our egos and trying to build a religious empire or a cosy life for ourselves. The front rooms of our houses can be used as many Christian groups do. I also believe the exchange of money - as a charge - damages the spiritual connection between teacher and pupil and at the very least causes the student to doubt the sincerity of the teaching in a capitalist world. A free teaching, given as a gift, is a powerful thing and can often reach people.

Dear fellow Buddhist, thank you for your feedback - the paid subscriptions have been necessary for us to keep the app ad free, research & add new daily quotes, and to promote it. Buddhism is a relatively niche interest as compared to music or games, so with fewer subscribers, prices have to be higher to be sustainable. We are sorry you found this unsatisfactory and thank you for your feedback - we will definitely be mindful of it in planning our future improvements as we work to make the app more affordable. We agree with your views on donations, but unfortunately accepting donations via in-app-purchases is not currently allowed. Best - Buddha Quotes Team
