Buddhism


Dharmachakra. The eight spokes represent the Noble Eightfold Path of Buddhism Buddhism is a dharmic non-theistic religion that is focused on the teachings of Siddharta Gautama, known as "Gautama Buddha" who was born and lived in ancient India/Nepal around the 5th century BCE.

The religion subsequently spread widely in Asia and later spread around the world gaining adherents in all the continents.

Today, the largest Buddhist populations are found in the Indian subcontinent, China, Tibet, Japan and Southeast Asia. The exact number of Buddhists is unknown, but typical estimates range from between 230 and 500 million, making it the fourth-largest (by population) organized religion in the world (after Christianity, Islam and Hinduism). There are also many people who incorporate elements of Buddhism into their religious practices or beliefs - so if these too are classified as Buddhists, then there are perhaps more than 1.5 billion Buddhists in the world - making it the largest religion in the world.

Gautama Buddha: The word Buddha means " awakened one" or & quot; the enlightened one". & quot; Buddha " is also used as a title for the first awakened being in an era. In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (Pali sammāsambuddha, Sanskrit samyaksaṃbuddha) of our age. Gautama taught a Middle Way between sensual indulgence and the severe asceticism found in the Sramana (renunciation) movement, common in his region. The Four Noble Truths (Sanskrit: catvāri āryasatyāni; Pali: cattāri ariyasaccāni) are " ; the truths of the Noble Ones," which express the basic orientation of Buddhism: this worldly existence is fundamentally unsatisfactory, but there is a path to liberation from repeated worldly existence. The truths are as follows: The Truth of Dukkha is that all conditional phenomena and experiences are not ultimately satisfying; The Truth of the Origin of Dukkha is that craving for and clinging to what is pleasurable and aversion to what is not pleasurable result in becoming, rebirth, dissatisfaction, and redeath; The Truth of the Cessation of Dukkha is that putting an end to this craving and clinging also means that rebirth, dissatisfaction, and redeath can no longer arise; The Truth of the Path Of Liberation from Dukkha is that by following the Noble Eightfold Path-namely, behaving decently, cultivating discipline, and practicing mindfulness and meditation-an end can be put to craving, to clinging, to becoming, to rebirth, to dissatisfaction, and to redeath. The four truths provide a useful conceptual framework for making sense of Buddhist thought,
