To start with Buddhists believe in the Four Noble Truths . All life is suffering (Dukkha): All aspect of life are essentially unsatisfactory and cause some degree of suffe…ring and pain. Now this ... is the noble truth of suffering: birth is suffering, aging is suffering, illness is suffering, death is suffering; union with what is displeasing is suffering; separation from what is pleasing is suffering; not to get what one wants is suffering; . Suffering has its origin in desire. This includes craving, seeking delight here and there, craving for sensual pleasures, craving for existence, craving for extermination. . There is an end to suffering by extinguishing desire. . This cessation of suffering can be achieved by the Noble Eightfold Path; that is, right view, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, right concentration. The Noble Eightfold Path has its elements divided into three basic categories as follows: . Wisdom . 1. Right view 2. Right intention . Ethical conduct . 3. Right speech 4. Right action 5. Right livelihood . Mental discipline . 6. Right effort 7. Right mindfulness 8. Right concentration . Buddha believes that if he is bad and when he dies he goes to hell in my case but he actually believes that he is reborn as a worm
He believed that: . All life contains suffering or unsatisfactoriness . That this undesirable condition is called by desire . That there is an escape form desire and suffe…ring . That this route is contained in the Eightfold Path . These points are called the Four Noble Truths
The question is a little vague. Most Buddhists don't believe in Buddha in the same way that Christians believe in Jesus. Gautama Siddharta, the historical Buddha, was me…rely the person who delivered the teachings of enlightenment to the world. Unlike Christianity, the veneration of the Buddha is not central to the religion. He taught that he was simply a man, not to be worshiped, and that innumerable Buddhas existed before and will exist after him. Buddhists believe in the teachings of Buddha, that through the elimination of desires an individual can alleviate suffering and ultimately reach enlightenment. Those that follow the Dharma (the teachings of Buddha) do so because it offers peace and understanding without the judgments and restrictions that many other religions place on their adherents. Also unlike most world religions, Buddhism does not teach that one must be a Buddhist or suffer the consequences. In fact many Buddhists also engage in Confucianism, Taoism, and Shinto. However, like any religion, the reasons people follow it are as various as the followers themselves. "There is no wealth like knowledge, and no poverty like ignorance." -The Buddha
"Faith healing" is not really a Buddhist tradition, neither is walking around with festering sores that can be treated with antibiotics. As an example HH the Dalai Lama was re…cently hospitalized and received medical treatment. Like many parts of Buddhist practice the use and acceptance of needful things (food, comfort etc.) is viewed as acceptable. The pursuit of things beyond physical need is a form of lust. In the case of medicine or medical attention, the proper treatment of disease is a physical need, the need for (as an example) cosmetic surgery for a straighter nose, bigger breasts or a flatter stomach would be hard to justify.
Buddha believed: . All life contains suffering . All suffering is caused by desire . There is a way to escape suffering by eliminating desire . The Eightfold Path is the …way . Buddha believed it is in every person to achieve the goal of enlightenment following these four noble truths. No deity is required to achieve this. So Buddha believed in every person. He did not believe in a god(s)
Buddishists do not belive in one god because they have more than one symbol Answer: Buddhists believe in Buddha in the same way that Americans "believe" in George Washington…" , not in the way that Christians "believe" in Jesus. The Buddha is a historic figure who solved the problem of suffering and proposed a route to enlightenment. He is, however, a man not a god.
Yes, I do believe in Buddha, because Buddha Ji was born in my Country Nepal. It is very easy to believe in actual historic figures like Buddha, Richard the Lion Heart, Mao Z…edong, and Alexander the Great as they have a wealth of contemporary information as proof of their existence.
Buddhists are quite varied in their beliefs because "belief" is not required to be a Buddhist. Buddhism teaches that we need to be clear on the difference between what we can …know with relative certainty and what we can only speculate about. So some Buddhists whose lives have led them to feel they "know God" may well believe in one God, but in general, most Buddhists do not hold a belief in one God.
The Buddha believed that each person should find their own truth, a truth that brings themselves closer to oneness with everything, that allows them to accept the world around… them for what it is.
Chinese should not believe in Buddha: I have learned when I was grade 6th that a person that made peace through the world. Jesus was the one who created him and Chinese had c…reated Budha to be the God. I hate the way they imagined Budha to be the god except how the way they invented things. Almost every items is created by China. Jesus has created those things and China just made it more special they should believe in Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit. I am not fighting who do they believe I am just saying... It is like the movie name "Clash Of the Titans" there is no Sun of the God and every character that is God. Its just a fable.... Do you believe Santa Claus? Do you believe Sun of the God? Do you believe Sea of the God? And every impossible things that we can't do so every God have to do it? If you answer "no".......then..... There is only one God that we know it is Jesus! Comment to the bottom (Don't destroy the comment up): No we don't. I am Chinese and I don't have to believe in Buddha and I don't believe in him. - Yolanda Shen
The texts tell us that the Buddha discovered that our own; thoughts words and deeds are the primary cause of our own suffering. Suffering generally is the result of 'ignorance…' of the laws of cause and effect. Suffering is the result of our attachment and aversion to composite phenomena, things that do not last.
Buddhism in general (with exception to certain Buddhist branch's) takes an indifferent stance on the existence of a heaven or hell,as most believe that we create a heaven or h…ell on earth based on our actions. Buddha spoke of different realms of existence where Karma is re-payed, some realms being hellish, others being heavenly, however Buddha spoke of both as being a negative since freeing yourself from the cycle of rebirth is the ultimate goal in Buddhism.
Buddha, which is a title that means "Enlightened One", was a spiritual teacher who is believed to have lived 2,500 - 2,600 years ago in South Asia. Buddhism is a religion that… is largely based on his teachings, which incorporate familiar concepts such as meditation, karma, rebirth, nirvana, yoga, zen, and philosophy. Answer: About 500,000,000 people in the world are Buddhist according to generally accepted estimates. Potentially this number is much higher. By this definition these people would believe in the historic Buddha.
People who believe in Buddha are commonly called Buddhists. They practice Buddhism
Probably because they have not been exposed to his teachings. For me, once I had been exposed to his teachings in a open minded manner, his teachings made a lot of sense to me… and I converted to be a follower.
