20 Inspiring and Motivational Buddha Quotes


Buddha was born as Siddharta Gautama into a royal family in Nepal. During his younger years, he was incredibly smart and compassionate. Belonging to what’s considered as a Warrior caste, he was predicted and expected to become a great king or an exceptional spiritual leader.

However, Buddha decided to leave the palace secretly and abandon his responsibilities to search for full enlightenment. A week before he turned 35, he reached that state.

For 45 years, Buddha taught constantly until his death. His teachings and non-dogmatic attitude are what characterize today’s Buddhism.
