Buddha Stories

Once upon a time, Buddha was walking through the forest on his own meditating when suddenly he was confronted by a bandit called Angulimal.

After he had seen that Buddha did not have any possessions, he wanted to kill him.

And so Buddha said: “Then be good enough to fulfill my dying wish,”

“Cut off the branch of that tree.”

One slash of the sword and it was done!

“What now?” asked the bandit.

“Put it back again,” said Buddha.

The bandit laughed: “You must be crazy to think anyone can do that.”

“On the contrary, it is you who are crazy to think that you are mighty because you can wound and destroy. That is the task of children. The mighty know how to create and heal.”

At once Angulimal understood and immediately went to his knees before buddha and begged for his forgiveness.


You see in life…

It is easy to hurt, to destroy, to wound, to hurt each other whether it is physical or emotional.

It takes courage and heart to build, to heal and to protect.

The real warrior inside you must have these virtues because even a child can destroy and hurt.

So always try to be the best version of yourself and let go of unnecessary anger.
