My Guide- Gautama The Buddha

Filed under: spiritual wisdom — Kaveeta Oberoi Kaul @ 4:40 pm

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.

What we think, we become.

Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.

Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds.

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.

Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.

Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten.

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned.



  1. Dear Kaveeta, I have been coming in here, and reading this piece from Buddha every day for weeks!!

    So now, must say thankyou to you Kaveet; for the opportunity to read these words; by posting it here for others to absorb!

    I am satiated from His Internal Wisdom.

  2. Oh North , that is so heartening to hear. I had to share what I had read of him.. it felt as if it would not work for me if I didn’t..
    We can all be happy together, never as a single entity.

    I shall be doing this time and again.

  5. Philosophies of great people always inspire us to live a meaningful and happyful life. But we should be pragmatic in approach towards our life.What was true hundreds of years ago, may be irrevelant in today’s context.
