Lord Buddha's Sayings

Whoever harasses an innocent man, a man pure, without blemish; the evil comes right back to the fool like fine dust thrown against the wind. ~The Buddha ~

“If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path.” ~ Buddhist Wisdom ~

All the water of sea can't sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly negativity of world can't put us down unless we allow it to get inside us. ~ Buddhist Wisdom ~ 

These two people are hard to find in the world. Which two? The one who is first to do a kindness, and The one who is grateful and thankful for any kindness done.
~ The Buddha ~ [Anguttara Nikāya 2.118]

The one who is very attached to the cave of the body, that one finds detachment very difficult. Those who constantly crave for pleasure are hard to liberate and certainly cannot be liberated by others, only by themselves. Sometimes it is only death that brings a realization of endings, and then the sensual person, deeply immersed in the body, will shout: "What will happen to me after death?" The way toward liberation is to train yourself to live in the present without any wanting to become anything. Give up becoming this or that, live without cravings, and experience this present moment with full attention. Then you will not cringe at death nor seek for repeated birth. ~ The Buddha ~ [Sutta Nipata]

How should a MONK practice contentment...?
Lord Buddha : This is how a MONK should practice contentment..
He takes food only to ease his hunger.
When he travels takes only the robe with him.
He lives in seclusion like, shade of a tree, near a water fall, in a cave, at a grave yard, etc..
Should meditate whenever he can..

The greatest impurity is ignorance.
Free yourself from it. ~ The Buddha ~

I can not pick you up from the suffering world.
I can not give my wisdom or my compassion to you.
But I can show you the path toward enlightenment.
~ The Buddha ~

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” ~ Buddhist Wisdom ~

A mind which is not protected by mindfulness is as helpless as a blind man walking over uneven ground without a guide. ~The Buddha ~

A man once asked the Budda,
" I want happiness"
The Budda replied,
First remove 'I' that's EGO,
Then remove ' want ' that's DESIRE,
And now all you're left with is HAPPINESS.

"The man who has no evil cannot be hurt by evil." ~ The Buddha ~

"To be free from suffering, free yourself from attachment." ~The Buddha~

"There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting."  ~ Buddhist Wisdom ~

"The secret of happiness lies in the mind's release from worldly ties." ~ The Buddha ~

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 ~ Gautama Buddha 

Overcome the angry man by love.
Overcome the ill-natured man by goodness.
Overcome the miser with generosity.
Overcome the liar with truth.
~The Buddha~

"The trouble is, you think you have time." ~Buddha

If you want wisdom, empty your heart from ignorance;
if you want contentment, empty your heart from greed;
if you want serenity, empty your heart from ill will.
~ Buddhist Wisdom ~

If you want to understand the causes that existed in the past, look at the results as they are manifested in the present. And if you want to understand what results will be manifested in the future, look at the causes that exist in the present. ~ The Buddha ~

If somebody meditates with a wholesome attitude, with right attention and mindfulness, then whether he has expectations or not he will gain insight. It's like filling a bowl with oil seeds
and pressing them or milking a cow by pulling the udder or filling a jar with cream and churning it. It's the right method. ~ The Buddha ~ [Majjhima Nikaya]

Having put aside violence against beings fearful or firm, he neither kills nor gets others to kill: he's what I call a holy man. ~ The Buddha ~

The whole world we travel with our thoughts,
Finding nowhere anyone as precious as one's own self.
Since each and every person is so precious to themselves
Let the self-respecting harm no other being.
~ The Buddha ~ [Samyutta Nikaya]

To the mind that is still the whole universe surrenders. ~ The Buddha ~

The rule of friendship means there should be mutual sympathy between them, each supplying what the other lacks and trying to benefit the other, always using friendly and sincere words.  ~ Buddhist Wisdom ~

Problems do not cause suffering. The cause is how we choose to react to the problems.
~ Buddhist Wisdom ~

“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.” ~Buddha
