Thanks for the feedback!
some Filipinos do believe that and some are Muslims too! but mostl Filipinos are christians Filipino buddhists do believe in Buddha of course. There are Buddhist Temples her…e Some buy images of Buddha and display it in their houses although they are not buddhists. They think that it is good luck and Filipinos are also influenced by the Chinese culture. There is even a place in Manila called China Town because many Chinese businessmen established their businesses there and you can buy many Buddha images there of different colors and sizes.
He had passed to nirvana
The Buddha was a hindu sant/satguru(enlightened and blessd soul),not a god or a prophet, who lived two thoushand five thoushand years ago in acient India. A very famous king o…f India called King Ashok believed in him and spread his messages all the way across India and Asia through missoneries, causing the followers of the Buddha's to grow to such an extenient that it split of Hinduism and became a separate religion called Buddhism! Before Christanity and Islam, Buddhism was the worlds largest religion, almost the whole of Asia was Buddhist. Still Buddhism is the worlds largest religion after Christanity and Islam. So I suppose you could say tha tthe Buddha was the founder of the Buddhism! Buddha was born in Hindu family in Lumbini, Nepal into a royal family where he was a prince. He was the one who figured out a way in which people could do to be freed from suffering and sorrow. His birth name was Siddhartha Gautama A grateful and hopeful man who taught us how to live in peace and harmony, a great man who deserves for everyone to know his name, Buddha.
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
Buddhist believe in Buddha because he was a real person. He worked very hard to find out a way that people can escape suffering. When he did this, rather than keep it …for himself or share it with a close community of friends, he spread the information to as many people as he could.
Buddha only idenitifed the way to enlightenment. There is nothing to stop a person from independently reaching the same conclusions, in which case he or she could strive f…or enlightenment without ever hearing of the Buddha. Unlike Christianity where Jesus is necessary for salvation, the Buddha is not a required belief for enlightenment in Buddhism. As Zen Biddhists put it,"If you meet the Buddha on the road- kill him.".
The Buddha grew up a prince in India. Until he was a young man, hehad never encountered aging or death. When he happened to hear astory of a servant's death, he became very di…sillusioned about hisposh life. Leaving the palace and his princely lifestyle, he beganhis historic journey towards enlightenment. He tried all themethods of worship, but in vain. At last, He sat below 'A bodhitree' for 6 days and attained enlightenment. Thus was born Buddhismor Buddhadhamma. Taking on 5 disciples, called the Bodhisattva, Heaided others on the path of enlightenment. His highest teachingsare that any that seeks enlightenment is a Buddhist. His intentionwas not to be worshipped or idolized in any way. Only to follow hisexample and that was all He desired for any creature seeking theplace He had attained. A majestic object of awesomeness
Siddartha Gutma (the Buddha) believed he would reach Nirvana, the Buddist version of heaven, because he was Enlightened.
It is a title given to a human person, saying he/she is "Fully Awakened". Meaning that that person has seen through the illusion of having an Ego. All human beings are inheren…tly buddhas and originally of the buddha-nature, so you also can wake up and see the true reallity. Then you will relax and smile and drop anger, craving, angst and worrying about life-&death. Imagine: you wake up one more time to day, just as radically as you woke up this morning, and you will learn that what you ordinaryly call "awake" is just another type of dream. So ... you are (a) buddha.
buddha didnt claim to be anyone other than who he was ... a man,he never claimed to be a god or have powers,he teaches a way of becoming happy and fulfilled.
He believed most strongly in finding inner peace.
The Buddha believed the only way to find truth was by looking at it without warping your view with attachments (hopes, fears or assumptions). The rest of Buddhism is methods …of weakening and overcoming those attachments.
attachment to the things of this world
He started a whole new religion. I believe that this is a good religion.
This question should be (who is Buddha?) because Buddha is one person that is founder of Buddhism. He Born in Lumbini, Nepal. Answer: All enlightened beings are Buddhas. All …sentient beings can become enlightened, Therefore all sentient beings can become Buddhas given enough time.
