+100 Buddha Phrases about Life, Love and More

I leave you the best buddha quotes, about love, life, happiness, attachment, pain and many more. With them you will receive the knowledge that Siddhartha Gautama obtained in his path of search for wisdom and enlightenment.

“Buddha” means “the awakened one” or “the enlightened one”. Contrary to what is believed in the West, Buddha is not a God nor was he considered as such; it was a normal person named Siddhartha Gautama, who bequeathed to enlightenment and whose teachings are still taught today.

Buddha was born in Lumbini, Nepal, in 567 BC. He was the son of a king, raised in wealth, married and had a son. At the age of 29 he changed his life when on a walk outside his palace he observed an old person, later an old man and finally a corpse. He was impressed and reasoned that even if he were rich he too would go through sickness, old age and death.

After the event, he decided to give up his privileged life and begin a spiritual search. He found various teachers and practiced asceticism with long fasts. He thought that this kind of punishment helped to get closer to enlightenment and that wisdom was achieved with the proximity of death.

As the story goes, after learning from his teachers he wanted to continue seeking wisdom. He spent a whole night meditating under a tree and finally received all the answers he was looking for, among them that to achieve happiness it is necessary to have mental discipline. From that moment of enlightenment he became the Buddha, the enlightened one.
