Gautam Buddha quotes
Gautama Buddha was the founder of Buddhism
Gautama Buddha was the founder of Buddhism, also called as the rebel child of Hinduism. Founded on the four noble truths, the religion endeavored to root out the sufferings from human life. Growing up as a royal prince, Buddha renounced the world in trying to find the way out of sufferings for all men. Through a rigorous life of penance and self-enquiry, Buddha, the enlightened one, evolved one of the greatest philosophical systems on the earth. Here we see some interesting Gautam Buddha quotes that can serve as the rudders to sail the boat of life.
The mind is the sum total of a human being. What you think you become.
As much as anybody else on the earth will need your love and affection, you too deserve your own.
It is always better to travel well than to arrive at the destination.
Peace only comes from within you. It is a vain attempt to seek it outside of you.
Caring for your health is your bounden duty. You can never nurture a strong and clear mind in an unhealthy body.
The importance of morals in life
As you would unearth treasures, you must bring out virtues through good deeds. A pure and peaceful mind is the seat of wisdom. The guidance of virtues and the light of wisdom can together walk a man safely through his life.
Bereft of health, life is a state of languor and suffering. It is nothing better than an image of death.
You will not be punished for your anger; you will rather be punished by your anger. Holding on to your anger is in no way better than consuming poison expecting the other person to die.
Pain is certain, but suffering is optional.
If you do not look after others during a dire need, who will look after you when you need help?
The mark of true love for you is not hurting any other life on the earth.
The end of life is happiness
There is no separate path leading to happiness. Happiness itself is the path.
You are born anew every morning. What you are today matters the most than anything else.
The ultimate secret of health is not to brood over the past or to worry about the future. It is to live in the present moment in an earnest and wise manner.
The ultimate purpose of life is to find your purpose. You must give your heart and soul to achieve this end.
Rely on your power of reason
Never believe in anything, irrespective of from where you read it and from whom you hear it, no matter even if I had said it. Use your power of reason and common sense to check whether it agrees with your belief and findings.
