Simple Yet Elegant teaching of Gautam Buddha

Buddha, meaning 'one who is awake' in the sense of having 'woken up to reality' was the title first given to Lord Buddha.

Siddhartha Gautama was born in 563 BCE in Lumbini, Nepal as a son of Shuddhodhana, the king of Kapilavastu and his Queen, Mayadevi.


Key Buddha teaching:-

Physical charms attract the eyes, Goodness attract the mind.

                                            *****

Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your unguarded thoughts.

                                            *****

If you light a lamp for somebody, It will also brighten your path.

                                            *****

Buddha was asked: "What have you gained from meditation"
He replied : Nothing, However Buddha said: Let me tell you what I lost: Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, fear of old age and death.

                                            *****

Three things cannot be hidden for long : Sun, Moon & Truth.

                                            *****

It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

                                            *****

No one save us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.

                                            *****

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.

                                            *****

Thank you!
