Gautama Buddha preached about peace and compassion. He gave a message of love and kindness to the world. And advised to live life in the moment without thinking about past or future. Since we can live happily only when we maintain compassion with ourselves as well as with others. We cannot make peace with past if we keep holding grudges in our heart.
