Buddhist Enlightenment





For a Buddhist Enlightenment is the goal of one’s life. Lord Buddha wished to be remembered as Awake. If he was awake, than all who are not Enlightened are sleeping. Enlightenment is the state of Self-Realization and is attained by transcending the ego.

It is a state of infinite bliss, peace, joy and love.


Buddhist Enlightenment



In modern times the path to Enlightenment is not only for Buddhists. Our attainment of this state is our true nature. The ego keeps us separated from reality and in a perpetual illusion.

Lord Buddha sought the meaning of life after noticing human suffering for the first time as an adult. Lord Buddha was a prince and heir to a royal kingdom. This however did not stop him from his quest and he gave up his pampered life.

The Buddha’s mission was to discover the meaning of life. What is the point of being born, living for a while, suffering, and then dying?

Lord Buddha discovered that the whole point of life is to evolve into our true nature. We are all conscious souls. We are the pure conscious awareness that lights up and animates our physical bodies.

Suffering is overcome when one becomes enlightened because of the awareness that one is not the body, or the mind. It is the ego that causes suffering.

We are all one. Seeking the truth and raising your level of consciousness is the greatest gift you can give to yourself, and to all of existence.

Enlightening Lotus

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
(Siddhartha Gautama)
(The Buddha)
