His followers and disciples wrote down his oral (spoken) sermons, lessons and teachings after his death. His teachings were also transmitted orally from teacher to student, in… the various lineages of Buddhism.
In a nutshell the Buddha's teachings were this: The Four Noble Truths, which are: 1) There is suffering (discontentment, unhappiness) in the world 2) There are specific …causes of this suffering, our desires and our need to see the world and ourselves as never changing (called seeking ground to stand on). 3) There is a state (a mindset, a way of life) where suffering ceases. 4) There is a path (actions, practices) to attain this state of freedom from suffering. The Buddha laid out the Eightfold Path as what he described as "the Middle Way" to reach enlightenment. This method is less severe than the path that The Buddha followed and avoids the extremes that he tried and failed at to reach enlightenment. The eightfold path consists of: 1. Right View 2. Right Intention (thought) 3. Right Speech 4. Right Action 5. Right Livelihood 6. Right Effort 7. Right Mindfulness 8. Right Concentration.
His teachings lived on and spread through different countries that all people are equal

four noble truths
Some of the Buddha's teachings were the eightfold path and the four noble truths. The eightfold path's main teaching were right understanding, right purpose, right speech, rig…ht action, right way to earn a living, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration. The teachings of the 4 noble truths were suffering is present in all things, and nothing lasts forever, suffering is caused by cravings, the way to end suffering is to give up all cravings, the way to give up all cravings is to live life according to the Eightfold Path.
The Buddha's teachings spread around to China and other surroundingdynasties and countries.
The four Noble Truths.
There was no Hinduism in the Buddha's day, but there were Brahmins who followed teachings found in the Vedas. Here are some ways the Buddha's teachings disagreed with other… teacher's views in his day (doctrines that would lead to what we call Hinduism): 1. He pointed out that, try as we might, we can find no "atman" -- no eternal, changeless, separate "self" that moves from life to life -- whereas those who followed the Vedas believed there was an "atman". 2. Many Brahmins of his day believed that "karma" was about what you do in rituals -- how well you performed them in order to get the universe to give you what you wanted. The Buddha redefined karma to be about the intentions behind our actions, and so when we reap the consequences of karma, we do so because of how we think about things, not just because of how we do things. 3. He taught self-reliance, whereas other religions teach that we can ask for intervention in our lives from deities.
Compassion, wisdom and ethical conduct.
Buddha's teachings agreed with Hinduism because like Hindus, he believed that people should act morally and treat others well. Buddha also did not reject the teaching of reinc…arnation, which is the process of rebirth.
We generally think of the fundamental teachings of Buddhism to be the four noble truths. These ideas would be taught to and understood by most people who regard themselves as …Buddhist: 1.The truth of suffering, where we are now 2.The truth regarding the beginning or origin of suffering 3.The truth connected to the cessation of suffering 4.The truth of an end to suffering through an eight fold path You might like to think of the teachings as embracing the concept of cause and effect.
