“We are shaped by our thoughts.
We become what we think. when the mind is pure,
joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”
Siddhartha Gautama, the person known as Buddha, 563 BCE-483 BCE, was a world renowned spiritual teacher and the central figure of Buddhism. It is said that, he was a Prince, shielded trom human suttering, and provided with everything he could want.
Compelled to find deeper meaning in life, he renounced his wealth and embarked on a journey of spiritual
discovery, that ultimately led to attaining “Enlightenment”. Buddha taught that the nature and cause of human suffering
is ignorance, that a path of moderation, called the Middle Way, is the solution and that there is a state of supreme
liberation called Nirvana, that is possible tor any being to achieve.
