Buddhism and the first of the Four Noble Truths

Posted by Jai Narayan on April 8, 2004, at 9:05:07

Buddha is "the awakened one".
There are "Four Noble Truths" on which Buddhism is based. Many forms: Theravada Buddhism, Zen, Pure Land Buddhism, Yogacara Buddhism and Vajrayana are all variations. These are all very different in form but they all work together and relate to the teachings of this one man know as the Buddha.
The key philosophy and teaching is that nothing is permanent. There will be happiness but there will always be sadness too.
This suffering is known as duhkha and the understanding of the term is the first step on the Buddhist path, the first of the Noble Truths.

Is this interesting? Do you want me to share any more?
