Buddhism has been around for 2600 years and is a very genuine, peaceful, spiritual and fair way of life of about 470 million followers and scholars around the world. Buddha quotes which I will be sharing here encompass the philosophy of Gautama Buddha’s (founder of Buddhism) teachings and about Buddhism.
Siddhartha Gautama , the historical founder of Buddhism left the palace where he had grown up at the age of 35. He experimented with different teachings for years, and found none of them acceptable. Sitting under a Bodhi tree and meditating, he finally got the answer to the questions of suffering that he had been seeking for so many years. In that moment of pure enlightenment, Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha (“he who is awake”).
