There are a lot of Buddha quotes going around the world, but not all of them were actually said by him. The Buddhist tradition is vast, but there are some general texts that many people agree as accurately reflecting his teachings. One of these is the “Dhammapada”.
This is a book of the basic sayings of the Buddha. The “Dhammapada” is especially favored in the Theravada Buddhist tradition, which is prevalent in Sri Lanka and South-East Asia. However, you don’t have to be a Buddhist in order to learn from its wisdom. Many lay people have also turned to it in order to find guidance.
Personally, I have read through the book several times, highlighting passages that speak to me. It’s a fast read, but every time I read it, I get a different perspective on things. If you are facing some sort of a problem in life, often you can find a solution there.
Look up a copy, invest in its and use it when needed. It can provide light and understanding that is incredibly resilient and flexible regardless of the times.
Peace and Love, Jim
