Brief Biography

Gautama Buddha was a spiritual teacher from the Indian subcontinent, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. The word Buddha is a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha of our age, "Buddha" meaning "awakened one" or "the enlightened one." Gautama Buddha may also be referred to as Sakyamuni. The Buddha found a Middle Way that ameliorated the extreme asceticism found in the Sramana religions. - Wikipedia

                      What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday and our present thoughts build our life tomorrow. Our life is the creation of our mind.

                        To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.

                          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.

                                An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.

                                      I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.

                                        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.
