Questions And Answers On Buddhism
Yew Han Hee
The following questions and answers have been especially formulated with the newcomer to Buddhism in mind. Q: Who was the Buddha?
The Buddha was a man who lived some 2,600 years ago and who revolutionised religious thought in India. This way of thought spread throughout the Eastern world and has now found its way to the West. Q: What does the word 'Buddha' mean?
The word 'Buddha' stands for the Awakened State (literally it means awakened), so it is used in relation to waking up to truth, to becoming enlightened. Q: What did the Buddha teach? A: His teaching was extensive. However, it is commonly agreed among all traditions throughout the Buddhist world, that fundamentally the teaching of the Buddha is contained in just four truths - the Four Noble Truths. Q: What are these truths?
They are: the truth of suffering; the truth of regarding the cause of suffering; the truth regarding the cessation of suffering; and the path, the way leading to the cessation of that suffering. We suffer when life does not go our way, when our hopes are dashed, and when disappointment or tragedy strikes. We also suffered when life does go our way. Why? Becausewe fear loss - loss of pleasure, wealth, family or friends. This is the truth of suffering.

84. Buddhism In A Nutshell - Rebirth
Article by Narada Thera on karma, rebirth and ignorance.
Rebirth As long as this kammic force exists there is rebirth, for beings are merely the visible manifestation of this invisible kammic force. Death is nothing but the temporary end of this temporary phenomenon. It is not the complete annihilation of this so-called being. The organic life has ceased, but the kammic force which hitherto actuated it has not been destroyed. As the kammic force remains entirely undisturbed by the disintegration of the fleeting body, the passing away of the present dying thought-moment only conditions a fresh consciousness in another birth.
It is kamma, rooted in ignorance and craving, that conditions rebirth. Past kamma conditions the present birth; and present kamma, in combination with past kamma, conditions the future. The present is the offspring of the past, and becomes, in turn, the parent of the future.
If we postulate a past, present, and a future life, then we are at once faced with the alleged mysterious problem "What is the ultimate origin of life?"

The entire THREE SUTRAS of Pure Land Buddhism
Jodo Shinshu Buddhism , or Shin Buddhism, is based upon the teachings and writings of Shinran Shonin (1173-1262). Shinran expounded the "True Pure Land Way", or the path whose "practice" is total faith in and reliance upon Amida Buddha, the Buddha of Infinite Light and Life. The Collected Works of Shinran include poems, letters, and his great treatise, Kyo Gyo Shin Sho . Outwardly, this faith is expressed by the grateful recitation of the Nembutsu, pronounced "Namu Amida Butsu" in Japanese. For a summary of Shinran's teachings, see the Tannisho , a short book composed by his follower Yuienbo with key quotes directly from Shinran. Tannisho represents Jodo Shinshu Buddhism in perhaps its most distilled and yet most simple and accessible form. Jodo Shinshu Buddhism teaches that faith in Amida Buddha cuts the bonds to our negative karma from the infinite past and into the infinite future. It is the faith behind the Nembutsu that is a person's link to Amida Buddha, who the Larger Sutra says created a "Pure Land" of infinite positivity and zero negativity where people go after they die, wherein they will realize full enlightenment (nirvana) and buddhahood. Amida Buddha was revealed to the world in three great Mahayana sutras attributed to the historical Buddha, Shakyamuni, who lived and taught in India ca. 563-483 BCE. See the links to these sutras above.

Dhammapada , XIV, 5
Buddhism largely consists of the doing of good action, the avoidance of bad action, and mental training. The aim of these practices is to put an end to suffering and achieve enlightenment; either for oneself, or for all beings. Enlightenment leads to touching or abiding in (Sanskrit: "Extinguishing.") Buddhist morality is guided by principles of harmlessness and moderation. Buddhists frequently use meditation to try to gain insight into the fundamental operations of human psychology and the causal processes of the world.

    precepts. In recent years Western visitors to Thailand have displayed an increasing interest in our national religion, buddhism.
    We pay homage to the Buddha for revealing to us the eternal truths of liberation We pay homage to the Dhamma (the teaching of the Buddha) for making known to us the nature of existence We pay homage to the Sangha (the order of monks) for preserving the teaching and practicing its precepts.
    In recent years Western visitors to Thailand have displayed an increasing interest in our national religion, Buddhism. “Who was the Buddha?” “What did he teach?” “What do Buddhists believe about life after death, good and evil and the beginning of the world?” To answer these and similar questions the present writing is intended.
    The Buddha’s teachings can be understood on two distinct levels. One is logical and conceptual and is concerned with an intellectual comprehension of man and the external universe. It is on this level that the above questions are more easily answered. The second level is empirical, experiential and psychological. It concerns the ever-present and inescapable phenomena of everyday human experience love and hate, fear and sorrow, pride and passion, frustration and elation. And most important, it explains the origins of such states of mind and prescribes the means for cultivating those states which are rewarding and wholesome and of diminishing those which are unsatisfactory and unwholesome. It was to this second level that the Buddha gave greater emphasis and importance. For its truth is demonstrable within the realm of everyday human existence, and its validity is independent of any world view or belief about life after death.

    Nyingma ('The Ancient Ones' )
    This is the oldest school of Tibetan Buddhism. It is based on a lineage of teachings and traditions introduced during the reigns of the Buddhist Kings of the Yarlong Dynasty in the eighth and ninth century by Padmasambhava, Shantarakshita, Vilalamitra, and others.
    Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava) Return to top
    Kagyu ( 'Oral Lineage' )
    The particular feature of the Kagyu lineage is that the teacher, after having mastered the teachings, clears away defects - relating to intellectual understanding, meditational experience, and the various levels of realisation. Upon completion of the process, the teacher is able to point out and introduce mahamudra to the disciple. The Kagyu teachings have been transmitted and preserved this way, in an unbroken line, until the present time. Shangpa Kagyu, was founded by Khyungpo Nyaljor (978-1079).
