Last Words: Buddha

There are various translations and recordings of the last words of the Buddha:

"All composite things pass away. Strive for your own liberation with diligence."

"All things are perishable, through vigilance awaken."

"Conditioned things are perishable; with vigilance strive to succeed."

-  Siddartha Gautama Buddha (c. 563 BCE or 623 BCE),
 regarded as the Supreme Buddha,
"Buddha" meaning "awakened one" or "the enlightened one."
