Buddha's Message of Light
It is said that these were the last words of Gautama Buddha before he closed his eyes on his final day more than 2,500 years ago. Whether folklore, mythology or fact, there is as much relevance to Buddha's message today as there always was. His sacrifice to attain enlightenment through hours, days and years of peaceful meditation is as inspiring as his commitment to impart his timeless message to all who would listen. What resonates most however is his conviction that the heaven we seek is within us. When we look within, we will see the light. We are the light that we seek. Namaste.
