Gautama Buddha Quotes

Gautama Buddha

Nothing brings suffering as does the untamed, uncontrolled unattended and unrestrained heart. That heart brings suffering. Nothing brings joy as does a tamed, controlled, attended and restrained heart. This heart brings joy.

Sensual passions are your first enemy. Your second is called Discontent. Your third is Hunger & Thirst. Your fourth is called Craving. Fifth is Sloth & Drowsiness. Sixth is called Terror. Your seventh is Uncertainty. Hypocrisy & Stubbornness, your eighth. Gains, Offerings, Fame, & Status wrongly gained, and whoever would praise self & disparage others.
