Light a Lamp and Brighten the path


“If you light a lamp for someone else, it will also brighten your own path.”

Buddhist theme

When Buddha was departing his deciples asked to who will be their teacher now? Who will guide them? How will we achieve enlightenment without Buddha’s help? 

The Buddha’s last famous words were, “Be your own light.” 

The truth is the light.

This quote is not directly from Buddha but related to the theme of Light, and everyone has the light within us.

With the Light we all have power to use our abilities to help others and every time we do so we are helping ourselves.

Looking after oneself, one looks after others.
Looking after others, one looks after oneself

Let us bring our Light to help and make a difference.

I commit to doing what I can! By being postive, by sharing, motiving, inspiring, encouraging others & helping in any way.
