13 Words of Wisdom from Buddha That’ll Make You Feel Lighter

 

As far as organised religions go, Buddhism seems to me to make the most sense. Basic Buddhist teaching emphasises that nothing is permanent, change is always possible, you should always avoid violence, reject dogma and that all actions have consequences. Awareness of the realities of the world, kindness towards your fellow man and accumulating wisdom is the aim of the game with the ultimate winning move being the achievement of Enlightenment.

Over 2500 years ago, Buddha, or Siddhartha Gautama sat under a Bodhi tree and vowed to stay there until the ultimate meaning of life came to him. And, so the story goes, it did. Here ‘The Enlightened One’ shares 11 words of wisdom that will instantly make you feel lighter.
