Gautam Buddha or ‘The Enlightened One’ is not only the founder of Buddhism but one of the most incredible people that roamed the surface of this earth. His teachings and quotes have spread all over the globe, and people turn to them to find some inner peace.
Buddha was born into an aristocratic family. One day he stepped out of his home and witnessed human suffering, which led him to abandon his rich life. Post this, he meditated for many years, and when he woke up, he realized why people were stuck in the circle of rebirth.
The rest of his life was spent telling people about his knowledge and spreading the wings of Buddhism.
Buddha implies being the Enlightened One, and he taught people for nearly 45 years, thus getting a large following. He explained to his followers the way to follow a spiritual life. His method of teaching included training in ethics and meditative practices.

However, we feel peaceful when someone tells us that all such bad things would end, eventually leading to a beautiful result.
Apart from that, we also need to know that love has many forms; compassion and forgiveness are necessary to attain salvation. Once we get to understand these facts of life, we can see the happiness, peace, inspiration and find some reasons to smile.
