budh , "to wake up"), was born to a royal Ks.atriya family. At his birth there was a prophecy that either he would become a world conqueror, or he would "conquer" the world by renouncing it and becoming a Buddha. His father preferred the more tangible kind of conquest and tried to shield Siddhartha from all the evils of life that might tempt him into spiritual reflection. This strategy backfired; for when, about age thirty, Siddhartha finally did experience evils, by encountering a sick man, an old man, a dead man, and a wandering ascetic, he determined immediately to renounce the world and seek enlightenment like the ascetic. This violated Siddhartha's duty as a householder, since his wife had just given birth to their first child, but Vedic duties and the traditional four stages of life were no longer of interest to him. After years of fasting and other ascetic practices, during which he supposedly subsisted on as little as one grain of rice a day, Siddhartha felt that he had achieved nothing. He ceased his fasting, but then sat down under a tree with the determination not to arise until he had achieved enlightenment. The tree became the

Last updated: May 27,2004 A lthough born and peaked in India, today (1999) Buddhism is more popular outside India than within. We know very little of history of Buddhism till the reign of emperor Ashoka , who transformed Buddhism into a great world religion. In the following pictures, two distinct aspects of Buddhism in India can be seen: one ancient (Ashokan and subsequent) and the other the Buddhism as practiced and advocated by the Tibetans (now in India as refugees). The contribution of Buddhist teachings on the Hinduism (sixth century B.C. onwards) was great and led to several reforms of Hinduism. Some Hindus believe that Buddha was one of the avatars of Lord Vishnu himself. The contribution of arts inspired by Buddha was also great and can be seen in the caves of Ajanta and many other edicts spread across India. Indeed, the lions of Sarnath became the emblem of free India. Table of Contents

    Preparing a woman for ritual intercourse, Rajasthani, 18th century. At first sight nothing seems more alien to the oldest form of Buddhism, Theravada, than Tantric Buddhism. Where Theravada urges us to reflect on the repulsiveness of the body, Tantric Buddhism tells us to revere it as a temple and to indulge its most sensual impulses. Theravada preaches the renunciation of all desires: Tantric Buddhism their over-fulfillment. These are very real and significant differences. If we regard nirvana as an ultimate reality which is revered as virtually divine, then most Mahayana schools of Buddhism are pantheisms of the world-rejecting and world-denying varieties (see Varieties of Pantheism ). Tantric Buddhism is a pantheism of the world-accepting variety which sees nirvana in the midst of sense-phenomena. Tantric Buddhism also laid great emphasis on mantras (incantations), on

The upanishadic view was ultimately negative and was further complicated by the now fully developed belief that there was an endless cycle of existence ( Samsara ), "of rebirth, redeath and rebirth" (Wolpert p. 47) "Desire, deeds, `action' (Karma) of any sort came now to be considered hindrances, snares, delusory traps in the souls search for moksha and the Law of Karma emerges linked to the concept of Samsara as a distinguishing axiom of India civilization." (ibid). The law posited that every action good and evil had repercussions or consequences of like kind at some future date. According to Horner Good Karma and bad Karma which are at once the result of previous deeds and the causes of new effects; work independently of each other and are not to be balanced the one against the other in any kind of scales" (I.B.

    As a child, Siddhartha the Buddha, was troubled by some of the same thoughts that children today have. They wonder about birth and death. They wonder why they get sick and why grandfather died. They wonder why their wishes do not come true. Children also wonder about happiness and the beauty in nature. Because the Buddha knew what was in the hearts of children and human kind, he taught everyone how to live a happy and peaceful life. Buddhism is not learning about strange beliefs from faraway lands. It is about looking at and thinking about our own lives. It shows us how to understand ourselves and how to cope with our daily problems. UNIT 1
    THE LIFE OF THE BUDDHA Life in the Palace
    Buddhism is one of the major religions in the world. It began around 2,500 years ago in India when Siddhartha Gautama discovered how to bring happiness into the world. He was born around 566 BC, in the small kingdom of Kapilavastu. His father was King Suddhodana and his mother was Queen Maya. Soon after Prince Siddhartha was born, the wise men predicted that he would become a Buddha. When the king heard this, he was deeply disturbed, for he wanted his son to become a mighty ruler. He told Queen Maya, "I will make life in the palace so pleasant that our son will never want to leave."

    Buddhism and Its Spread Along the Silk Road
    "There one sees a structure of an elevation prodigious in height; it is supported by gigantic pillars and covered with paintings of all the birds created by God. In the interior are two immense idols carved in the rock and rising from the foot of the mountains to the summit....One cannot see anything comparable to these statues in the whole world."
    -Yakut describing Bamiyan in his geographical dictionary in 1218
    Besides silk, paper and other goods, the Silk Road carried another commodity which was equally significant in world history. Along with trade and migration, the world's oldest international highway was the vehicle which spread Buddhism through Central Asia. The transmission was launched from northwestern India to modern Pakistan, Afghanistan, Central Asia, Xinjiang (Chinese Turkistan), China, Korea and Japan. Buddhism not only affected the lives and cultures on those regions but also left us with a world of wonders in arts and literature. (Figure on the right: Princes from Central Asian states in Lamentation, Dunhuang Cave 158. After Sakyamuni entered nirvana, princes of different Central Asian states gathered to express their grief, crying, beating their chests, piercing themselves with swords or knives, or cutting off their noses or ears. This painting not only depicts their devotions to Buddha, but also accurately presents the appearances, garments and customs of different nations along the Silk Road and the history of cultural exchange between them.)

    HOME TIME AND SPACE PREHISTORY MESOPOTAMIA ... Cool Links Buddhism Buddhists look within themselves to find peace; they believe they can find the path to Nirvana through meditation and karma. Karma can be defined as the rewards or punishments a person faces because of their thoughts, words, and actions. A happy person who treats others with kindness and respect creates good karma. A person who mistreats others will in turn be mistreated. This is bad karma. The Buddha did not want his teachings to replace other faiths, but today over three hundred million Buddhists in all parts of the world adhere to his philosophy . His ideas traveled to China, Korea, Japan, and Southeast Asia. Buddhism lost its influence in India by the 8th century, partly because its ideas were absorbed into Hinduism, and partly due to the rise of Islam. Buddhism is a major religious and moral force in the world, but it has been all but unknown in India for over one thousand years.
