Character Sketch of Gautam Buddha
“A great tree grows from two soft leaves to spread its shade after.”
Rightly writes Edwin Arnold in his book ‘Light of Asia’ for Gautam buddha an apostle whose sacrifices can never be forgotten. Gautam Buddha was born 563B.C. in a royal family of northern India but was less fortunate, He couldn’t enjoy his princehood more than twenty years.
Very sensitive by nature, he renounced the world of luxury coming across human suffering, sickness, old age and death. His strong willpower couldn’t shake him to leave his princely life and family which he loved a lot. He attained enlightenment after undergoing a long period of renunciation and hardships. He wandered for seven long years and finally sat down under a peepal tree in mediation and finally came to be known as the Buddha.
He was a selfless soul who shared even his wisdom and enlightenment to eliminate human suffering.
He had a deep psychological insight. He handled Kisa Gotami’s grief not only by uttering words of wisdom but by making her realise the reality of birth and death by letting her experience personally.
When he asked her for mustard seeds, he added, “ The mustard seed must be taken from a house where no one has lost a child husband, parent or friend.”
Thus the life of Gautam Buddha teaches us how to recognize – the ‘self ’ & never hesitate to leave our weaknesses and worldly pleasures on the path of human services.
