Buddha

A great and prime personality of my neighbor country has twitted to me.  I am quoting his golden words as under:

“Buddha gave to the world a complete system of morality; he was a great teacher of equality.”

Buddha

Penal Pencil Sketch of Buddha

Buddhism started with the Buddha. The word ‘Buddha’ is a title, which means ‘one who is awake’ — in the sense of having ‘woken up to reality’. The Buddha was born as Siddhartha Gautama in Nepal around 2,500 years ago. He did not claim to be a god or a prophet. He was a human being who became Enlightened, understanding life in the deepest way possible.

Siddhartha was born into the royal family of a small kingdom on the Indian-Nepalese border. According to the traditional story he had a privileged upbringing, but was jolted out of his sheltered life on realizing that life includes the harsh facts of old age, sickness, and death.

But he still hadn’t solved the mystery of life and death. True understanding seemed as far away as ever. So he abandoned this way and looked into his own heart and mind; he decided to trust his intuition and learn from direct experience. He sat down beneath a pipal tree and vowed to stay there until he’d gained Enlightenment. After 40 days, on the full moon in May, Siddhartha finally attained ultimate Freedom.

Whenever the Buddha went, he won the hearts of the people because he dealt with their true feelings. He advised them not to accept his words on blind faith, but to decide for themselves whether his teachings are right or wrong, then follow them. He encouraged everyone to have compassion for each other and develop their own virtue, “You should do your own work, for I can teach only the way.”

He never became angry or impatient or spoke harshly to anyone, not even to those who opposed him. He always taught in such a way that everyone could understand. Each person thought the Buddha was speaking especially for him. The Buddha told his followers to help each other on the Way. Following is a story of the Buddha living as an example to his disciples.

Once the Buddha and Ananda visited a monastery where a monk was suffering from a contagious disease. The poor man lay in a mess with no one looking after him. The Buddha himself washed the sick monk and placed him on a new bed. Afterwards, he admonished the other monks. “Monks, you have neither mother nor father to look after you. If you do not look after each other, who will look after you? Whoever serves the sick and suffering, serves me.”

People who practice Buddhism are called Buddhists, and they are divided into two groups: ordained monks and lay-people. The ordained monks practice their religion with extreme dedication and teach others about Buddhism while the lay-people have families, work for a living and live their lives according to Buddhist teachings.

Buddhism is based on the teachings of Buddha, who was seen as an enlightened teacher. He taught people not to look to gods to end their suffering, but that when individuals do bad things, the result will be bad. When individuals choose to do good and eliminate greed, hatred and ignorance, they enter into peace and an end of suffering.

Nadeem Baig Sahib came from his upper portion and entered into his Drawing Room, where I along with my family members were sitting.  He entered into the room with his “ever green” smile and shake hands with all of us.
