The last words from buddha

The great Gautam Buddha

On the last days of his life the great Gautam Buddha arrived in kushinagar a small town in state uttar pradesh of india.He decided to leave his body(die) in Kushinagar then one of his fellow asked him to move to some bigger place but he repplied ”no this place is good”.
And when Buddha was about to give up his students requested him not to leave them alone.Then he showed them his body removing the cloth.His body was infected by Diseases and infection and said the following words.

These were the very last words Buddha spoke:

“Behold, O monks, this is my last advice to you. All component things in the world are changeable. They are not lasting. Work hard to gain your own salvation. Do your best.”
Then the Buddha lapsed into the Jhana stages or meditative absorption. Going from level to level, one after the other, ever deeper and deeper. Then he came out of the meditative absorption for the last time. After that he passed into Jhana a little way; and from this Jhana the Buddha passed into Nibbana leaving nothing whatever behind that can cause rebirth again in this or any other world.
The passing away of the Buddha occurred in 543 B.C. on a full-moon day in the month of May, known in the Indian calendar as Vesak.

    Thank you for the following of catnipoflife for in doing so, it brought me to your site. While each of us is dependent upon the families to which we are born, there is a time in life where decisions guide our paths toward awakening and enlightenment. I have not studied the ways or teachings of Buddha but have been exposed to his inspiring quotes throughout my life. I was not aware of his manner of passing and found this post to be most interesting.

    Thank you Arvind Yadav for following my blog. Nice to read about Buddha’s last words in your posting. I heard that during Buddha’s last few days, when his disciples were sad because of his impending end, Buddha said, “Do not grieve. All along when I have been here and pointed to the moon, you were worshipping my finger. Perhaps, when I am gone, you will look at the moon.” !

    You too would have heard of this.

    “Work hard to gain your salvation.” The line that separates Christianity from any other religion. It’s been said that getting to God is like climbing a mountain. There is more than one way up the mountain. Right? But Man doesn’t have the ability to climb that mountain, if it is bases on our works…we fail every time. The only way we can make it up the mountain, is if God intercedes and climbs that mountain for us. I’d like to introduce you to Jesus!

    Great post, I found it very interesting.

    can i suggest you read the great translation of Rubayyat of Umar Khyyam which moved me throughout my life, by Edward Fitzgerald – and present for us relevant quotes as for othe other mystics – he was also a great persian mystic poet – the moving finger writes and having written moves on etc – he comp[ares in the translation to Gibran and Rumi and in my view out does them.
