Disclaimer - there are few facts copied from internet ... as I wanted to convey preaching as it is
After couple of days I sat for meditation ...
Mannat was sleeping . Thought purification of mind and soul is much needed after so much negativity going on in my life ...

Did traditional offerings and cleaned my Altar ..
Best part I can offer whatever I have cooked there is no restrictions .; It concentrates on enlightenment of your own self ....

I am asking anyone to practice Buddhism but we can definetly inculcate his preaching in our life...

Three Universal truths some basic teachings of;The Buddha
1.;Nothing is lost in the Universe;:

The first universal truth of Buddha found was;nothing is lost;in this universe. Old solar systems disintegrate into cosmic rays. We are the child of our parents and we will be the parents of our children.

If we destroy something around us, we destroy ourselves. If we lie to another, we lie to ourselves. Learning and understanding these truths,;Lord Buddhaand his disciples never killed any animal.
2.;Everything changes;:

The second universal truth is;everything changes and keeps on changing continuously;. Dinosaurs, mammoth used to rule this planet but now we humans rule the planet. Life is like a river, it keeps on flowing, ever-changing.
3.;Law of Cause and effect:
";The kind of seed sown

will produce that kind of fruit.

Those who do good will reap good results.

Those who do evil will reap evil results.

If you carefully plant a good seed,

You will joyfully gather good fruit.;"

~ Dhammapada

It is mentioned in;Dhammapada;too, if we do some good things, then good things will come to us. If we do something evil, then evil things will happen to us. It is all due to cause and effect. This law of Cause and effect is known;Karma;.

Most religion strongly believes in Karma, so do;Buddhism;. Good karma results to good results and evil karma leads to bad results.

"There is happiness in life,;
