Buddha or Buddha Gautama, also known as Shakyamuni Buddha, was a great spiritual master from ancient India. Born as Prince Siddhārtha Gautama in 5th century BC. The prince one day left the palace life in search of spiritual knowledge. After years of contemplative seeking, the Buddha attained great enlightenment under the Bodhi tree. Today we would like to share with you the sage doctrine of the Buddha in the holy Tipitaka, excerpted from the Cula-dukkhakkhandha Sutta – The Lesser Mass of Stress. “I have heard that on one occasion the Buddha was staying among the Sakyans at Kapilavatthu in the Banyan Park. Then Mahanama the Sakyan went to the Blessed One. Mahanama said to the Buddha, ‘What mental quality is unabandoned within me so that there are times when the mental quality of greed invades my mind and remains, when the mental quality of aversion, the mental quality of delusion invades my mind and remains?’ ‘Mahanama, that very mental quality is what is unabandoned within you so that there are times when the mental quality of greed, the mental quality of aversion, the mental quality of delusion invades your mind and remains. For if that mental quality were abandoned in you, you would not live the household life and would not partake of sensuality.’”
