Gautam Buddha quote 1

1. Quote

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.


Children, our inner self, like our thoughts and emotions, define our happiness. Small things like, whether you have a new toy or not shouldn’t matter. It merely makes us want that even more.


Gautam Buddha quote 2

2. Quote

Health is the greatest gift, contentment, the greatest wealth, faithfulness, the best relationship.



Children, if God has given us good health, He has given us the best gift. With a healthy body, we can overcome any difficulty. True happiness and peace are the greatest wealth we can ever have. While money can buy things, it can never buy happiness because happiness comes from within. Having faith in God is the purest relationship we can have because God helps us in every situation. So, we should always thank God for what He has given us and remain content with it.

3. Quote

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, and concentrate the mind on the present moment.


Children, the past is over and the future is unpredictable. It is only in the present that we can act to make positive changes in our lives. So, we should not think about the past or worry about the future. For example, if we did not score well in our previous exam, we should not stress about future exams. Instead, we should focus on studying now, so we don't waste our precious time.

4. Quote

If you truly loved yourself, you would never harm another.


Children, harming someone intentionally is impossible for a person who has truly loved themselves first. When we love ourselves, we start loving others for the same goodness we see in ourselves. Harming someone, like not listening to our parents or hurting our friends means that we have never loved ourselves. So, we should always try not to harm others in any way.

Three things cannot be long hidden: the Sun, the Moon, and the truth.



Children, no matter how hard we try to hide it, just like the Sun and the Moon, the truth always comes out. Like, if you lie to your parents, it will never make you happy and will always be a burden on you. And one or the other day they will get to know the truth. So, we should always be honest and truthful with everyone.
