Buddha's Message Explained to a Child

Buddha's Message Explained to a Child

“People do all sorts of crazy things in their lives because they’re so afraid of growing old and sick and dying, even though there’s really nothing we can do to avoid it.

Buddha saw that and wasn’t happy about it. He was also really afraid of death and suffering, and he wanted to find a way to live a life that wasn’t completely controlled by that fear. He wanted to live happy, and for him that meant finding a way to live without fear.”
