Buddhism is mostly practice in china now it is practice all over the world
Prince Siddhartha was born about 500 B.C. and the teachings of Buddhism were created in one lifetime.
Seddartha founded Buddism because he wanted to find the end of all human suffering. He realized that the cause of all human suffering is diseire. Wanting something is the cause of suffering, because if you don't get it or if it doesnt come to you, you suffer yourself. -Hope this is better help to y…ou then the other answers. (MORE)

buddism is a religion that is practiced in china . Buddism is a religion in China practiced by buddist monks. Buddah is a real person, a prince! I'm not trying to be rasict but in America lots of people dont care for Buddism because its in China! -Lon3wo1f Actually, Buddah is the son of a prince.… He believed he had found the meaning of life. Buddah is not his real name either. (Although I forgot his real name!) He knew that in life there was much suffering and wanting things created suffering. He believed you should not ask for much and be at peace with yourself and you won't suffer so much in life. And many Americans believe in Buddism. -Mary A More correct answer to your question is this: In the year 534 BCE, a young Indian prince named Siddhartha Gautama (age 29) was deeply troubled about the fact that so many people suffer. So he left his wife and child and renounced his throne to find out the answer to why there was suffering. Now it should be noted when Buddhists speak of suffering this includes dissatisfaction (unhappiness) with the way things are. Siddhartha went to study with various gurus to try to find the answer to his question. Theses gurus had him do various types of yoga and meditation to try to help him with his quest. None of them seem to have an answer to his question though. Siddhartha left these various gurus and joined in with a group of ascetics. Asceticism is a path in which you deprive the body in order to conquer and control the mind. He practiced asceticism fiercely, almost to the point of death. At that point he realized that giving in to pleasure, as he did when he was a prince, nor trying to punish the body, was the proper path to finding the answer. So he sat down and meditated under a pi-pal tree. During this meditation he discovered the root of all suffering and the path to how to overcome suffering and became enlightened. After his enlightenment he meets up with his ascetic friends, who by now were critical of him for leaving the path of asceticism. But he explains to them what he had discovered and they were instantly converted. From there The Buddha taught for 45 years until his death at 85 converting many to his teachings and now Buddhism is the 4 th largest religion in the world practiced in all continents. (MORE)

There is no god of Buddhism. However, there are some Buddhists who believe in a variety of gods or goddesses. There are no requirements, either way, though in general it does not acknowledge a "Creator" god, such as Jehovah/Yahweh/Allah. Buddha himself, or Siddartha Guatama, did not claim to be a g…od, or accept worship. (MORE)

Gods do not exist in Buddhism wherein God means a 'creator', 'destroyer' or a 'supreme being'. That way, Buddhism is Atheistic. The personified images and statues that are worshiped are those of Buddha and/or the Bodhisattva. Buddha means the perfected human spirit who has attained enlightenme…nt ( Bodh ) and Bodhisattva, the one who qualifies as a Buddha but put this attainment on hold to help the other souls in their journey of self-exploration and enlightenment Buddhism teaches to focus and meditate on oneself and not the imaginary God or the heavens.

Theravada is closest to the original teachinsg of the buddha and uses the Pali language, which is closest to the language the Buddha spoke.. Mahayana came several centuries or so later, and places the bodhisattva vow to deliver all sentient beings to enlightenment before oneself gains enligtenment.… In theravada ones own enligtenment is the primary focus. Both emphasise compassion for and the universal suffering of all beings however. (MORE)

In 2010, it is the year 2553 for Buddhists. To convert the Western calendar to the Buddhist one, simply add 543 years. Answer: Buddhists do not have separate year total like Christian, Jewish or ancient Romans. This is due, in part, to the lack of specific date (year) for the Buddha's birth and …in part as the need to pin down ephemeral matters such as a accurate count of the passage of years is not a high priority. Instead they use the year as used in the location in which they live. As the most common system is the "Common Era" notation most Buddhists would refer to it. This is 2010 CE (MORE)

Duhka is everywhere *greed and selfishness causes suffering *greed and selfishness can be overcome *greed and selfishness can be ended by following the eight fold path
There is no such thing as fate or destiny in Buddhism. Fate and destiny is connected with something being predestined by a God or other force. In Buddhism there is nothing to believe in. Buddhism has karma which mean all actions has a cause and an effect. What you have done in the past will give you… a specific result at the present or in the future. Nothing more and nothing less. Sometimes people have forgotten past actions or do not understand the consequences of their actions. Therefore the result can be felt as it was predestined by some outer force. But it is merely a lack of understanding of how things actually are. (MORE)
Buddhism began when a former prince named Siddartha Gautama became enlightened after meditating for many years, and developed knowledge about the universe that he shared with everyone.
If brief they are this: The Four Noble Truths, which are: 1) There is suffering (discontentment, unhappiness) in the world 2) There are specific causes of this suffering. 3) There is a state (a mindset, a way of life) where suffering ceases. 4) There is a path (actions, practices) to atta…in 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. (MORE)

With the cosmopolitan nature of the world today it is likely that Buddhism is practiced almost everywhere. The main bloc of adherents continues to be in Asia.
The traditional starting beliefs are the Four Noble Truths, which are; . Suffering exists . Suffering arises from attachment to desires . Suffering ceases when attachment to desire ceases . Freedom from suffering is possible by practicing the Eightfold Path The Eightfold path connects with th…ree qualities, Wisdom, Morality, and Meditation. Each of these three qualities then have paths connected with their effects. Wisdom has two paths. The first is Right View. Right view is the direct experience, rather than an indirect experience. It is your view and not something you have borrowed from others. The second path of Wisdom is the path of Right Thought. This is the non-dual experience where both sides can win and there will be no losers. The next noble eightfold path is connected with the quality of Morality and it has three more paths. Right Speech, Right Action and Right Livelihood. These three paths integrate understanding into the interconnected web of all life. The last three paths are associated with the quality of Meditation, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, and Right contemplation. These achieve deep harmony where nothing is left out. (MORE)

They believe in reincarnation. Their religion is quite similar to Hinduism when it come to the afterlife. Buddhists believe that when you do the right things throughout your life after you die you reincarnate to the higher social status. You continue to reincarnate until you finally make it to the h…ighest status and then finally nirvana, aka heaven. They worship Buddha, but surprisingly when Buddha was alive he told his followers he was not a god, simply a teacher. (MORE)
I would suggest that a principal similarity between these three traditions is that they are all non-theistic (i.e., they do not make any assertion one way or another about God, in contrast to atheism, which asserts that there is no God). While each of these traditions has deities (divine figures, ar…chetypes or persons), these deities are not regarded as the Creator. Instead, the entire Cosmos (including the illusion of time) is regarded as beginningless. (MORE)

Buddhism teaches morals such as avoiding killing any creature, stealing, adultery, lying, corrupt speech, freed, anger and ignorance it is rooted in the teaching of a man who never claimed to be God (or a god) nor did he claim to be a prophet of God.
I would have to say the Four Noble Truths, which are: 1) There is suffering (discontentment, unhappiness) in the world 2) There are specific causes of this suffering. 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.

It depends on which religion you are talking about. Buddism is more of a belief system and does not worship a God.
Buddhism doesn't have ten commandments or any for that matter. Its principles are not based on command and control but on suggestions on how to lead one's life more skillfully to avoid pain and suffering of all types. The Eightfold Path is a numerical list of these suggestions but a Buddhist is not …required to live by them. (MORE)

I answer this question in view of ordinary good Buddhist in Thailand which is Hinayana Buddhism and not as a buddhism expert, the Buddhism does not have rigid class or race like India .In general we respect people in our society by seniority both in our social life and in temple, secondly we respect… people who has higher "seela" or morality for example we respect monks and religious persons than normal people. In the past only men who had passed his monkshood would be granted for marriage or would be regarded as full adult. In the temple the monk will respect each other and even respect seniority in years of monkshood than ages, and in this case there is hierarchy of position of monk same as in Christianity in order to take care all the monks and Buddhism according to the principles of Buddhism and present social life.

God Buddha is the creator of the Buddhism religion but he was a Gayman! He spent his days in the forest away from people wanking all day & when any one would try and speak with him he would folds his legs and pretend to meditate to avoid confrontation.
Sometimes when I'm asked to describe the Buddhist beliefs, I say this: (1) Everything is connected; (2) Nothing lasts; (3) You are not alone. These first three are really just a restatement of the traditional Three Marks of Existence: non-self, impermanence, and suffering. The fact that we a…ll suffer means we are all in the same boat, and that's what allows us to feel compassion. (4) Life is full of suffering (5) Suffering exists because of our desires and aversions. (6) There is a state of mind in which suffering ends ( enlightenment ). (7) There is a path to attain this state; That path is called the Eight Fold Path. Items 4 - 7 are the Four Noble Truths. (8) Bodichitta (Loving- Kindness / Compassion) is the first step to enlightenment ( and to solving the world's problems ) (9) The 5 Precepts concisely describe a moral life The 5 precepts are: (1) not to take the life of any sentient being, (2) not to take anything not freely given, (3) to abstain from sexual misconduct and sensual overindulgence, (4) to refrain from untrue speech, and gossip, and (5) to avoid intoxication, which leads to losing mindfulness. (10) Mindfulness of thoughts and actions are the key to wisdom and therefore to the path of enlightenment. Lastly, followers of the Buddha are typicality called Buddhists. (MORE)
There is none. Unlike many Christian churches, in which there is a hierarchy of responsibility and control, Buddhism has no overall structure or central church. There are different Buddhist traditions, called lineages, such as Tibetan Buddhism, or Theravada Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, etc, but each lin…eage might or might not have a Lineage Master (like the Dalai Lama, who is the Lineage Master for the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism). To explain this you need to understand how Buddhism is taught. Buddhist masters are monks who have learned the teachings sufficiently and has the ability to speak authoritatively about the teachings. They have received permission to do this from their master. This permission is called being given transmission . The monk could then go to another area, open a monastery and then teach others. If one of his monks then learns the teachings sufficiently, the new master could give transmission to his student, and the cycle continues. Please note that learning the teachings of the Buddha is not memorization, these masters must completely understand and be able to explain the teachings in their own words. So Buddhism has a very diffuse structure. (MORE)
