Compassionate-Prophet Buddha

Compassionate Buddha
(568-488 B.C.E.)


"Just as a mother would protect her only child at the risk of her own life, even so, cultivate a boundless heart towards all beings. Let your thoughts of boundless love pervade the whole world."

"Consider others as yourself."

"What we think, we become."

"Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind."

"Hatred does not ever cease in this world by hating, but by love; this is an eternal truth... Overcome anger by love, Overcome evil by good. overcome the miser by giving, overcome the liar by truth."

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

"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."

"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned."

"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."

"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful."

"Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten."

"One who acts on truth is happy, in this world and beyond."

"If you do not tend to one another then who is there to tend to you? Whoever who would tend me, he should tend the sick."

"With the relinquishing of all thought and egotism, the enlightened one is liberated through not clinging."

"By becoming attached to names and forms, not realising that they have no more basis than the activities of the mind itself, error rises, and the way to emancipation is blocked."
