Buddha Quotes On Love And Life To Enlighten Your Mind

Buddha Quotes

Buddha (born Siddhartha Gautama), one of history’s most important spiritual figures, was a philosopher and prolific speaker on the subjects of love, life, peace, happiness, and death. The meaning of the name Buddha—”one who is awakened” or “the enlightened one”—speaks volumes about the lessons he imparted to others. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that people appreciate reading and emulating Buddha quotes.
