Normally the right-sided people are extremely thin, but Buddha is very fat. Normally the right-sided people are extremely serious ... but Buddha is laughing all the time with both His hands like this, enjoying Himself. See the contrast.... Buddha is the one who is realized, the one who is the enlightened one ... who was compassion, who was knowledge, who was joy. In His life He never criticized anyone.... He is the one who has taught us so many beautiful things by His own life. And if we have to really imbibe His spirit within ourselves, we have to have that detachment from within.... In the light of Buddha, you can see your ego very clearly. And He is the killer of your ego. He is the one who finishes off your ego.... Now Buddha told three things which are very important, which are very useful for Sahaja Yogis to follow. He said, “Buddham Sharanam Gachami – I surrender myself to the enlightened one....” The second is “Dhammam Sharanam Gachami.” at is dharma. Our dharma is Vishwa Nirmala Dharma. That means now we have become universal beings.... At the end, He said, “Sangham Sharanam Gachami.” This is a very important one also. It is the most important thing.... Surrender yourself to the collectivity. (Shri Buddha Puja 1991 | SHRI MAHAKALI Shri Mahakali Pujas 1990 & 1989)
Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha, or simply the Buddha, was an ascetic (śramaṇa) and sage on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. He is believed to have lived and taught mostly in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent sometime between the sixth and fourth centuries BCE.
Gautama taught a Middle Way between sensual indulgence and the severe asceticism found in the śramaṇa movement common in his region. He later taught throughout regions of eastern India such as Magadha and Kosala. (more)
