The Buddha denies the existence of any permanent entity either physical or mental. We call this theory about self as Anatmavada.

Don’t be a Fool

Fools wait for a lucky day.

But every day is a lucky day
for an industrious man.

Gautama Buddha

The long way

Long is the night to him who is awake.
Long is a mile to him who is tired.
Long is life to the foolish who do not know the true law.

Gautama Buddha


Purity or impurity depends on oneself,
no one can purify another.

Gautama Buddha

Conquer yourself

Greater in battle than the man who would conquer a thousand-thousand men,
is he who would conquer just one —

Better to conquer yourself than others.
When you’ve trained yourself,
living in constant self-control,
neither a deva nor gandhabba,
nor a Mara banded with Brahmas,
could turn that triumph
back into defeat.

Gautama Buddha

The joy of freedom

There is no fire like greed,
no crime like hatred,
no sorrow like separation,
no sickness like hunger of heart,
and no joy like the joy of freedom.


Cannot be hidden

Three things cannot be long hidden:
The sun, the moon, and the truth.

Gautama Buddha
