– CW 8: Buddha’s message to the world
The life of Buddha has an especial appeal. All my life I have been very fond of Buddha… I have more veneration for that character than for any other — that boldness, that fearlessness, and that tremendous love!
He was born for the good of men. Others may seek God, others may seek truth for themselves; he did not even care to know truth for himself. He sought truth because people were in misery. How to help them, that was his only concern. Throughout his life he never had a thought for himself. How can we ignorant, selfish, narrow-minded human beings ever understand the greatness of this man?
