Enlightening Message of Lord Buddha

​Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
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.
Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
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.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
The mind is everything. What you think you become.

  1. Why the postings are attributed directly to Buddha, when they can not be found in or referenced to his sutras?
    Even if – generally – they may represent Buddha’s message, they are not Buddha’s quotes. It would be helpful to reference each “quote” to the particular sutra or other specific source.
