Buddha means “the Awakened One”. Here are the teachings of Lord Buddha that can truly transform your life for better.

  1. “The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help you are freed.” — Buddha
  2. “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” — Buddha
  3. “Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it.” — Buddha
  4. “Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” — Buddha
  5. “Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.” — Buddha
  6. “Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds” — Buddha
  7. “A good friend who points out mistakes and imperfections and rebukes evil is to be respected as if he reveals a secret of hidden treasure.” — Buddha
  8. “It is wrong to think that misfortunes come from the east or from the west; they originate within one’s own mind. Therefore, it is foolish to guard against misfortunes from the external world and leave the inner mind uncontrolled.” — Buddha
  9. “Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.” — Buddha
  10. “All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.” — Buddha
  11. “Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” — Buddha
  12. “The stages of the Noble Path are: Right View, Right Thought, Right Speech, Right Behavior, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness and Right Concentration.” — Buddha
  13. “There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.” — Buddha
  14. “You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger.” — Buddha
  15. “Fashion your life as a garland of beautiful deeds.” — Buddha
  16. “To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.” — Buddha
  17. “A wise man, recognizing that the world is but an illusion, does not act as if it is real, so he escapes the suffering.” — Buddha
  18. “Friendship is the only cure for hatred, the only guarantee of peace.” — Buddha
  19. “Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.” — Buddha
  20. “An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.” — Buddha
  21. “The good shine from afar like the snowy Himalayas. The bad don’t appear even when near, like arrows, shot into the night.” — Buddha
  22. “The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground.” — Buddha
  23. “You cannot travel the path until you have become the path itself” — Buddha
  24. “In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.” — Buddha
  25. “When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.” — Buddha
  26. “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” — Buddha
  27. “An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.” — Buddha
