Gautam Buddha Quotes for Students

Summing:

Buddha, also known as the “enlightened (or awakened) one,” was the spiritual leader and founder of Buddhism. Gautam was born in the fifth century BC into the royal family of Lumbini (Nepal). He grew up in the lap of luxury.

During his childhood, some saints predicted that he would become a famous spiritual leader or a noble king. Despite losing his mother at a young age, his father kept him away from worldly miseries. He grew up and had a happy family life until he came across a corpse, a hermit, an old man, and a sick person on one of his city walks. This exposed him to the world’s sorrows and sufferings. Thus began a journey of self-discovery.

Gautam Buddha was a very calm, peaceful, and fairway of life and these Gautam Buddha Quotes encompass the philosophy of Buddha’s teachings.
