Sayings of Buddha
Title: Sayings of Buddha
Summary: "Let a wise man blow off the impurities of his self, as a smith blows off the impurities of silver, one by one, little by little, and from time to time."
Detail: Buddha is not a god or a man carrying from heaven a supernatural revelation, to be accepted on faith. He does not speak of a God, a Creator. He does not tell why we live, but how to live. He teaches a way of life, a way to rise above the troubles of life, and finally a way to achieve the ultimate happiness of Nirvana, in which a state of blissful, untroubled peace accompanies the complete opening of understanding.
This anthology of the Buddha's thoughts and sayings provide us with much food for thought. It gives us an opportunity to improve our minds, our lives and the thoughts and lives of those around us.
