2. An Introduction To Buddhism
An Introduction to buddhism*. I encourage all of you to become familiar with buddhism, and I humbly suggest that these pages are a good place to begin!
An Introduction to Buddhism* To do no evil; To cultivate good; To purify one's mind: This is the teaching of the Buddhas. The Dhammapada The Buddha was born Siddhartha Gautama, a prince of the Sakya tribe of Nepal, in approximately 566 BC. When he was twentynine years old, he left the comforts of his home to seek the meaning of the suffering he saw around him. After six years of arduous yogic training, he abandoned the way of self-mortification and instead sat in mindful meditation beneath a bodhi tree. On the full moon of May, with the rising of the morning star, Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha, the enlightened one. The Buddha wandered the plains of northeastern India for 45 years more, teaching the path or Dharma he had realized in that moment. Around him developed a community or Sangha of monks and, later, nuns, drawn from every tribe and caste, devoted to practicing this path. In approximately 486 BC, at the age of 80, the Buddha died. His last words are said to be... Impermanent are all created things; Strive on with awareness.

Buddhism originated in India in the 6th century BC. It consists of the teachings of the Buddha, Gautama Siddhartha. Of the main branches of Buddhism, it is the Mahayana or "Greater Vehicle" Buddhism which found its way to Japan. Buddhism was imported to Japan via China and Korea in form of a present from the friendly Korean kingdom of Kudara (Paikche) in the 6th century . While Buddhism was welcomed by the ruling nobles as Japan's new state religion, it did not initially spread among the common people due to its complex theories. There were also a few initial conflicts with Shinto , Japan's native religion, but the two religions were soon able to co-exist harmonically and even complemented each other.

8. ThaiBuddhism
THAIbuddhism. The three greatest religions in the world is buddhism, Christianity and Mohammedanism. buddhism, however, is the oldest of the three. It was founded 2 500 years ago by Lord Buddha. Buddha was a son of an Indian king. Thus the seeds of buddhism were sown and began to spread far
Like other Indian Princes, Siddhattha married Princess Yasohara Bimba, also a daughter of the King of a neighboring state, who had soon afterwards born him a son named Rahula. But unlike them, instead of allowing himself to be chained all his life to his wife and son, Siddythatha broke up all these worldly fetters. At the age of twenty-nine, he stole out of his palace one night, set out on a long solitary journey, and left all his possessions behind. The Indian king who did most in patronizing Buddhism and spreading it into foreign lands was King Asoka. Thanks to this great king, Buddhism came to be established in Suwannadhumi, where it was finally embraced by the Thai people, and under the benevolent rule of King Ramkhamhaeng of Sukhothai, Buddhism became the Thai state religion. Ever since the foundation of the Kingdom of Sukhothai, Thailand has been a stronghold of Buddhism, which has, no doubt, a great influence over the Thai people. Under its good influence, the Thais have become peace- loving nation, with unrivalled tolerance and hospitality to the people of different races and creeds. It is not too much to say that, in the past, this admirable characteristic of our nation helped a great deal in preserving our national independence while the neighboring countries all around us were losing theirs.

12. SPIRAL - Ethics: Previous Weeks - JUDAISM And BUDDHISM
A brief explanation of the view that the moral dimension does not exist in buddhism. From the Spiral Institute for Kabbalah.
PREVIOUS WEEKS JUDAISM and BUDDHISM "Whosoever has these three attributes is of the disciples of Avraham our forefather, but whosoever has three other attributes is of the disciples of Bilaam the wicked. A good eye, a humble ruah - spirit, and a lowly nefesh - disposition are the tokens of the disciples of Avraham our forefather; an evil eye, a haughty ruah , and a proud disposition are the signs of the disciples of Bilaam the wicked" (Avot 5) In the history of mankind, the matriarchate ends and the patriarchate begins with Avraham, the first of the forefathers. With Avraham, a new dimension, the fifth dimension which is the moral dimension, is added to the world. This comes with neshama - the intellectual soul, the mind which enables us to distinguish between good and bad. It comes with the ability to differentiate between that which is light and that which is dark. The Sefer Yetzirah revealed to Avraham Avinu adds the moral dimension to world thinking as taught in the Asian religions dominated by Buddhism. Since Buddha achieves purity through spirituality by detaching himself from that which is corporeal, the moral dimension does not exist in Buddhism. Judaism recognises that the body with all its sensuous failings is essential to life, and provides the discipline to harness that which is potentially evil to good purpose. This may be done with the ability to differentiate between that which is good and that which is bad.

17. Common Misconceptions About Buddhism
Examines misconceptions about reincarnation, prayer, paganism, and so forth.
Some Common Misconceptions
About Buddhism in America
"Buddhism is a 'pagan' religion"
"Paganism" is usually used to refer to belief in a god or gods other than the normally accepted Christian God. However, Buddhists don't concern themselves about God or god(s). Buddhists concern themselves with the Dharma, which is not a god or gods. It is "truth" or "reality." Thus, when sad or tragic events occur in our lives or the lives of our loved ones - as they inevitably will - Buddhists don't have to ask "Why did this happen?" This is because Buddhists don't hold onto the belief that there is a god "looking out" for his or her welfare. Buddhism is really an attitude of accepting the inevitable changes or impermanence of life, and of being grateful for every moment we are alive.
"All Buddhists believe in reincarnation"
This misconception is understandable, given that Tibetan Buddhists (such as the Dalai Lama), who do believe in a form of reincarnation, are perhaps the most "visible" of the many sects of Buddhism. Also, watching recent movies like Little Buddha

Buddhism's View on The Wheel of Rebirth
A Speech by Venerable Master Hsing Yun
on November 21, 1982
at The CKS Cultural Center, Kaohsiung, Taiwan Back Dear Venerable and Guardian Faithful, Today, I am going to discuss with you a very important, but difficult to affirm, question. When we talk about rebirth or reincarnation, some people laugh at the idea. They consider such belief is passe and obsolete. Others may think such question is in arena of religion. After all, it concerns what is after death. It is not practical and very distant. There is a saying, 'If I don't even know about living, why ask about dying?' Thus, this question should not be an urgent concern. To be sincere, the setting of a grand lecture hall is not very suitable to talk about the subject of rebirth. If we could discuss this question on a battle field, where death confront us, then we can all sincerely and solemnly discuss our next stop upon death. ¡@Most young people today slight and look down on the question of rebirth. These disbelievers of rebirth are not necessary living in a higher level. They are actually shallow and ignorant. Denying the existing of rebirth does not obstruct others, it only limits our own life. Without rebirth, there is no past and there is no future. A life without future, existence is so short and vain. The future is so hopeless. When we face a great obstacle, we can encourage ourselves, 'It is okay, another ten years then it will be my turn.' Even when criminal steps on the execution chair, they can still say, 'Another twenty years, there will be another tough man'. With rebirth, human existence has maneuvering rooms. With rebirth, pledge and wish can eventually be fulfilled. With rebirth, life has the next train available.
