The Buddha

Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness.

Conquer the liar with truth

Letting go gives us freedom,
and freedom is the only condition for happiness.

If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions
– we cannot be free.

but only by love; this is the eternal rule.


Gautama Buddha

The only reason why we are still here,
is because we believe there is a reason to be here.

So why are we still swimming in the sea of samsara?

Man suffers only because he takes seriously
what the gods made for fun.
