Conquer. . .

Born in Nepal in the 6th century B.C., Siddhartha Gautama, who would later become known as Buddha, was a spiritual leader and undoubtedly one of the most influential figures of all times.

It is said that the “awakened one” was the son of a king who wanted to keep him away from seeing the world’s suffering and hardship, so Buddha was raised in opulence in a palace that was built especially for him. It was only in his late 20s that Buddha decided to leave the palace and confront the reality outside the protective walls. After 49 days of deep meditation, Buddha attained enlightenment and found all the answers he had been seeking for. He spent the rest of his life traveling and teaching the Dharma to all those who wanted to follow the path of enlightenment.

My personal favorite summation of his teachings are in this quote: Conquer the angry one by not getting angry; conquer the wicked by goodness; conquer the stingy by generosity, and the liar by speaking the truth. – The Buddha
