gautama buddha

We all have days in life when nothing seems to go right. For children, life's rainy days could dishearten them easily. It is during these times that parents play an important role in shaping their attitudes.

Powerful sayings can go a long way in turning a bad day around. Here are some simple, yet profound teachings from Lord Buddha that could inspire both, our kids and us, to be the best versions of ourselves.

What we think, we become.

If you think you can conquer the world, you can. The power of the mind is immense.

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 burnt.

Anger is a natural emotion, but hanging onto it for long may cloud our ability to think rationally. For every minute that you’re angry, you lose a minute of peace of mind.

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

Respect yourself, be your own best friend. Only then, will you be respected by others.

The tongue is like a sharp knife… kills without drawing blood.

Words once spoken, cannot be taken back. Choose what you utter, carefully.

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Make life a celebration. Gift someone a smile, laugh out loud and share your joy.

gautama buddha

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

Allow wonderment to flow through you. When you are in awe of life, each moment is a ‘wow’ experience.

Three things cannot hide for long: the Moon, the Sun and the Truth.

Try to be honest, particularly to yourself. Remember, the truth may hurt only for a while, a lie can hurt forever.

Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.

Shed the past like the snake sheds its skin. Focus on the present, pave way for the future.

Nothing is forever except change.

We all know this one, don’t we? Accepting change is the only way to be flexible in life.

Life is a river always flowing. Do not hold onto things. Work hard.

Holding onto the past only adds to the baggage of suffering. Let your hard work speak and flow with the river of life.
