50 Powerful Buddha Quotes

Gautama Buddha was a spiritual teacher who lived in India between the sixth and fourth centuries BC.

 

After many years spent in deep meditation, he realized that attachment and desiring lead to unhappiness. It was this life philosophy that lead to the creation of Buddhism, the world's fourth-largest religion with over 520 million followers.

 

Buddha believed that enlightenment, or “Nirvana “, was achieved when one’s mind is compassionate, free of attachment and focused on the present moment.
