Buddha’s wisdom resonates throughout time, reminding us that true strength and confidence lies not in the external praise of others or the criticism of blame. Rather, it comes from within – an inner knowing and conviction that cannot be shaken by any external force. To have this kind of strength requires great courage and determination as we must confront our fears and doubts while also confronting those who may wish to see us fail. It is a difficult but important journey to take in order to become truly wise and strong. In the end, if we can find the courage to stay steady no matter what judgement is thrown our way, then we will find our own true peace and power – one that transcends all else. As Buddha said: “As a solid rock is not shaken by the wind, so wise men falter not amidst blame or praise.” May we all strive to become this kind of wise and strong person.
The message of Buddha’s wisdom can serve as a powerful reminder in our lives today. We must remember that true strength and courage come from within. When we find it within ourselves, no external force can shake us or make us falter. By embracing our own inner strength, we can rise above the noise of criticism and praise and stay rooted in our path towards wisdom and greatness. It is only then that we will find true peace and power – one that transcends beyond anything else. Heed the words of Buddha: “As a solid rock is not shaken by the wind so wise men falter not amidst blame or praise.” May you have the courage to stay steady and continue on your journey of self-discovery.
