The song inspired Gautama Buddha:

The song inspired Gautama Buddha Fair goes the dancing when the Sitar is tuned, Tune us the Sitar neither low nor high, And we will dance away the hearts of men. The string overstretched breaks, the music dies, The string over slack is dumb and the music dies, Tune us the Sitar neither low nor high."

What is right understanding:

What is right understanding If change was the fact of life, one must not stick to One’s longings. One must understand that happiness could not come from outside. I would come from inside by knowing it clearly that all things were transient in world One must not crave for happiness

Purpose of Life:

Purpose of Life Man must have purpose in life. The purpose of life cannot be anything else than to attain liberation from cravings that lead to acquire more. Consequently it results in sorrow

Right Purpose of Life:

Right Purpose of Life Practice right purpose in life which can lead one to Right action Right occupation Right speech If your purpose in life is correct, it will lead one to choose right profession

Our mission of Life:

Our mission of Life Man’s mission in life should not be to satisfy his own selfish ends but to help others. Do remember all living beings love life and all creatures desire to shun pain

Be Kind and Good:

Be Kind and Good WHATEVER, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings; believe and cling to that doctrine, and take it as your guide.

Who is a Good Friend:

Who is a Good Friend A man is not to be considered a good man just because he is an able talker. A GOOD friend who points out mistakes and imperfections and rebukes evil is to be respected as if he reveals a secret of hidden treasure.

Your are the creator of Your Happiness:

Your are the creator of Your Happiness Happiness can be the outcome of doing good. We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.

Your words create your world:

Your words create your world One had better refrain from incorrect speech. The words we utter should be chosen with care, for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.

What is Best Dharma:

What is Best Dharma Dharma ( duty ) of human being is not harm anyone but to protect and help everyone. To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance

Learn to concentrate:

Learn to concentrate One is to cultivate the seven factors of enlightenment: mindfulness, investigation into phenomena, energy, bliss, tranquillity, concentration, and equanimity.

Creating a better Rebirth:

Creating a better Rebirth Death is not to be feared so much by one who has lived wisely. Living well favours a serene death and rebirth in a happy state.

Ignorance creates Arrogance:

Ignorance creates Arrogance In the ignorance of the whole truth, each person maintains his own arrogant point of view. If that is your case, try to make the best out of it anyway.

Path to Wisdom:

Path to Wisdom Lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom. By taking what is not given (stealing) one seldom reaches great freedom from animosity.

Face the realities with serenity:

Face the realities with serenity Let us try to face reality squarely, exactly as it is. Nothing is permanent . It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

Escape from suffering:

Escape from suffering You should free yourself from sufferings while there is time left. You should seek to escape becoming a corrupt corpse while living .

Creating a Best Family:

Creating a Best Family A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.

Believe to suit consciousness:

Believe to suit consciousness Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

You are creator of your Destiny:

You are creator of your Destiny All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him . If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

Escape the suffering:

Escape the suffering A wise man, recognizing that the world is but an illusion, does not act as if it is real, so he escapes the suffering. Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

Concentrate on present:

Concentrate on present Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds.

Be contented :

Be contented Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.

Life is guided by wheel of Fortune:

Life is guided by wheel of Fortune His success may be great, but be it ever so great the wheel of fortune may turn again and bring him down into the dust Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.

Life is Mixture of Good and Evil:

Life is Mixture of Good and Evil Wherever there is light, there is shadow; wherever there is length, there is shortness; wherever there is white, there is black. Just like these, as the self-nature of things can not exist alone, they are called non-substantial .

Best Victory:

Best Victory It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

What is the Best:

What is the Best Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship. If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

Make life easier:

Make life easier Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.

Best Prayer is Patience:

Best Prayer is Patience The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows. The greatest prayer is patience Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.
