Teachings Of Buddha

The wise man never changes in face of happiness or sorrow, even as a mountain shakes not, being blown against by fierce gusts of wind.

He who destroyed craving has overcome all sorrow. Conquer your desires or they will conquer you.

A wise man blows off the impurities of his self, as a smith blows off the impurities of silver one by one, little by little and from time to time.

Blessed are they who earn their livelihood in a way that brings hurt or danger to no living thing.

Rude speech is the sharp sword. Greed and lust are the repulsive poison.

If you see certainty in that which is uncertain, you are bound to suffer.

Your body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care. 

Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love, this is the eternal rule. 

Nothing is, everything is becoming. There is no present - only change.

Hatred is the great blazing fire. Ignorance is the deepest darkness.

No one and nothing can free you but your own understanding.

Death appears unlovely only to those attached to earthly things.

Patience is the strong armour. Wisdom is the sharp weapon.

Of all mindfulness meditations, that on death is supreme. 

Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others. 

He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind. 

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. 

From what is dear to us, suffering arises.

Joyful is the accumulation of good work. 

All things are transient and void of self.
