Gautam Buddha was an enlightened person, free from all the sorrows and pain. He was not only the founder of Buddhism but also a great teacher.
Buddha Purnima marks the birth anniversary of Gautam Buddha. It is also believed that Lord Buddha attained enlightenment on this day.
Let us have a look at some of the best quotes by buddha to attain some beautiful life lessons.
Top 5 Quotes By Gautam Buddha On Life, Peace, And Mindfulness
Don’t Compare Yourself With Others
We spend half of the time comparing ourselves with others. It not only makes us feel insecure and inferior but also affects our mental peace.
Budhha has a perfect saying for such situations. “Don’t Compare Your Life To Others. There Is No Comparison Between The Sun And The Moon. They Shine When Its Their Time’.
So next time you feel bad, just remember that you are one of a kind. There is no one like you and you are perfect in every manner.
Nothing Lasts Forever
It is hard for us to believe that nothing lasts forever. Whenever something beautiful ends, we start questioning ourselves, fate, or God ignoring that everything happens for a reason.
Whether it be darkness or light, sorrows or happiness, hate or love, everything has an end.
Endings are inevitable.
Thus, we should remember that “Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Make your peace with that and all will be well.”
Be Content With The Least
There is a common saying, “The Grass Is Greener On The Other Side.” We think that others are achieving more than us. This leads to dissatisfaction.
We all are so busy achieving more, that we forget to appreciate what we have.
It is never wrong to be ambitious, but it is also important to celebrate our small wins. Buddha has said it right, “He has the most who is most content with the least.”
Be grateful for what you have today and see magical changes in your life.
Every Morning We Are Born Again
Mostly we forget to be grateful for a new day and new opportunities. During tough times, it is hard to remember that every morning is a new beginning of life.
If you are also having a bad day then keep in mind this quote by Gautam Budhha. “Every Morning Is We Are Born Again, What We Do Today Is What Matters The Most.”
So, let go of all the guilt, regret, and suffering of the past and make the best use of today.
Light A Lamp For Others To Brighten Your Path
Gautam Budhha once said, “If you Light The Lamp For Somebody, It Will Also Brighten Your Path.”
If you are kind and do something good for others, it will always return to you. So, on your path of life, never forget to help people who need it.
Gautam Budhha’s lessons always provide peace of mind. Hope these quotes help you in solving the obstacles of your life.
Wishing you all a Happy Budhha Purnima!
