101 Motivational Buddha Quotes About Life, Love, Peace, and Happiness – Woman's DayRelationship
These sayings — both from Buddha and those inspired by his teachings — focus on happiness, peace, and gratitude.
Gautama Buddha was the influential teacher, philosopher, and spiritual leader who founded Buddhism between 6th to 4th century B.C. (
Scholars continue to debate the specific timeframes and events that occurred around Buddha’s life.) He was considered by many "the enlightened one" who, through his meditation, found peace and answers to many of life’s hardest questions. He’d then try to teach the clarity he had gained to others. Buddha is associated with focusing on kindness, patience, and generosity, and his words have been interpreted over the years to help those who follow the religion, and even those who don’t, find understanding in their lives.
In honor of his teachings, we rounded up the most powerful quotes from Buddha and those inspired by his teachings about life, love, peace, and happiness. We also encourage you to learn more about Buddha and Buddhism through The Buddhist Society.
