57 most influential quotes of Lord Buddha

By | January 12, 2019

Buddha or Gautama Buddha was an ordinary person named as Siddhartha Gautama. He was a son of an emperor and had all the luxury in his early days. One day he left his crown and went into the jungle to find some answers to his questions.

Who is God and where he lives? Why humans are unhappy all the time? Why there is so much hate in the world? Why people are fighting with each other? Such questions arise in Buddha’s mind 2500 years ago.

He left all his luxury to find the real truth about life. When he found all the answer, he spreads all his knowledge to the world and creates a new religion called Buddhism. Here are his most influential quotes.
