Stop doubting start trusting:

“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.”

But also keep in mind:

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” ~ Buddha

Did you know?

His father did not want Siddhartha to learn about human hardships and sufferings as he was afraid that such knowledge might propel the boy towards spirituality.
Having spent all of his life confined to his palace, young Siddhartha grew curious and asked a charioteer to take him on a tour of the city. While travelling through the city he came across an old crippled man, a sick man, a dead man, and a holy man with no home.

These sights shocked him as he had no prior knowledge about the concepts of sickness, old age, death, and asceticism. The charioteer explained to him that sickness, aging and death were a part and parcel of life, and that some people renounce their worldly life in order to seek answers to questions on human sufferings.

What you do matter most:

“A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.” ~ Buddha

“A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.”


Mind your words:

“Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.” ~ Buddha

Be kind to others:

“Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike; each has their suffering. Some suffer too much, others too little.”

“Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.” ~ Buddha

“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”

Walk in your own path:

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” ~ Buddha


Know yourself for enlightenment your life:

“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.”


Did you know?

After meditating for 49 days, he finally realized the answer to the questions of suffering that he had sought for so many years. He found pure enlightenment, and in that moment of enlightenment, Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha (“he who is awake”).

Buddha went to the Deer Park in Isipatana where he found the five companions who had earlier abandoned him. He preached his first sermon to them and the others who had gathered there. In his sermon, he focused on the Four Noble Truths: Dukkha (suffering), Samudaya (cause for suffering), Nirodha (state of mind free from suffering) and Marga (way to end suffering).

Be admiring eliminating jealousy:

“Do not be jealous of others’ good qualities, but out of admiration adopt them yourself.”

Be wise when choosing your friends:

“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.”

“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.”


Live fully at present to become healthy:

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” ~ Buddha




Truth can’t be hidden:

“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”

Give up your labels:

“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.”

Let go of fear:

“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 are you freed.”
