Buddhism By Mikahi McClaine

Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to the insight into reality

The founder of Buddhism was Siddhartha Shakaymuni who was born a prince in Lumbini in 624B.C.
Siddhartha lived as a prince until the age of 29 when he retired to the forests to follow the spiritual life of meditation.
The main beliefs in Buddhism are the four noble truths, reincarnation, and the three trainings.
Reincarnation is being reborn after death. The four noble truths explore human suffering The three trainings are sila(virtue, morality, and good conduct),Samadhi(mental development and concentration and meditation), andprajna(where enlightenment emerges in the calm and pure mind)
The Tripitaka, The Mahayana Sutras, and The Tibetan Book of the Dead are the important texts in Buddhism.
The Tripitaka is one life the earliest compilations of the Buddha teachings, the Mahayana Sutras were the concepts of the Mahayans, and the Tibetan Book of the Dead was the stages of death through the Tibetan point of view
Buddhism had influenced many to believe as living creatures to care about other living creatures. Buddhism impact on the world promoted education and inspired art, literature, architecture, and changes in Indian society. Buddhism spread very peacefully and was modified to fit the local mentality without diverting from the main points and wisdom.
