The Buddha was a
pioneer as a lover of men, and a philosophic genius rolled into
a single vigorous and radiant personality. He had things to say
that no man or woman, after 2500 years of bustling and hustling
and chattering round the fountain of knowledge, can afford to ignore.
Greater perhaps than his wisdom was the example he set.
Moni Bagghee ,“Our Buddha”
does not speak of sin
Serenity of spirit
and love for all sentient creation are enjoined by the Buddha. He
does not speak of sin, but only of ignorance and foolishness which
could be cured by enlightenment and sympathy.
Radhakrisnan ,“Gautama The Buddha”
is like a physician
The Buddha is like
a physician. Just as a doctor must know the diagnosis of the different
kinds of illness, their causes, the antidotes and remedies, and
must be able to apply them, so also the Buddha has taught the Four
Holy Truths which indicate the range of suffering, its origin, its
cessation, and the way which lead to its cessation.
