114 Buddha Affirmations For Peace And Zen

The teachings of Buddha have benefited countless followers for thousands of years, and one of the most important lessons that one can take away is from this quote:

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. What we think, we become”

Gautama Buddha

It tells us of the power of our minds.

These wise words are closely related to the use of positive affirmations, where we aim to replace negative and self-limiting thoughts with positive and empowering ones. Thoughts that spur us to take action and manifest our goals and dreams.

They are also the perfect accompaniment to building up self-confidence and finding peace within oneself.

In this post, you will find a list of Buddha affirmations that will help you achieve that. Use them to form your own Buddhist mantras that you can use to achieve your goals and dreams.

How can Buddha affirmations benefit you?

You do not necessarily need to be a Buddhist or even religious to practice affirmations. Anyone can do it, and different people do so for many different reasons.

Some of us want more positivity in our lives, some need focus and discipline to achieve a goal, while others might be searching for inner peace, zen, and spirituality.

The list of Buddha affirmations below (some influenced by modern-day practitioners such as Tibetan Buddhist nun Ani Trime Lhamo) are scripted to mimic its teachings and are especially effective while meditating.

As you advance your practice, you improve your ability to visualize, relax, and improve your life potential.

How to use affirmations effectively?

  • Identify the negative thoughts that you wish to get rid of or something that you wish to manifest. Affirmations work in both scenarios, but you need to be clear about what you want. This post about learning how to write affirmations might help you out.
  • Use the following list as a source of inspiration and guidance. You may use any affirmation as it is, or modify it to make it your own. The key thing here is that the affirmations MUST resonate with you and is a statement you truly believe in.
  • Pick out at least 2 affirmations and start using them. 
  • Begin a routine of practicing at least twice a day of reciting the affirmations with each session lasting 3-5 minutes. Repeat each one 10-15 times daily. You can do this in front of a mirror, speak out loud, or do it in your mind. Do not skip any sessions. I usually do this each morning when I wake and before I go to bed.
  • Download and print out your own affirmations worksheet below to use as a guide for manifestation. Stick it on your mirror/journal/vision board, or anywhere you can easily access it throughout the day so that it can serve as a constant reminder to you.
