Buddhists can be miners. Before Buddhism came to Tibet the aniministic religion called Bon prevailed. People believed that spirits inhabited every aspect of the world, and that mining could disturb those spirits in some situations so it was not allowed. After Buddhism became established in Tibet peo…ple realized that it was not a good idea to harm or kill any sentient beings, and some people refused to dig in the earth because they would inevitably harm or kill insects that lived in the soil. People who have to dig in the soil to grow crops or nomads who have to slaughter animals for meat consider it to be part of their karma to have been born into a situation in which they have to kill to eat.

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. ( Full Answer )

Gautam Buddha(real name Siddhartha Gautama) was born in Lumbini,Nepal. He was prince of Shakya kingdom. As part of kingdom he was forbidden to go out. Later when he reached adulthood he left the palace to explore the world. By that time he was curious about life and everything. He then sat under a t…ree to meditate and self-knowledge the questions that arise on his mind. It is believed that a birth light glew on back of his head when he meditated. He taught people what he learnt from meditation and always taught people to follow the path of peace. This way Buddhism was born and his followers were called Buddhists. Buddhism spread throughout oriental Asia and some buddhists tend to medidate the way he did, e.g- through stages like not eating water,food for years to concentrate on meditation. For your question those who pass Gautam Buddha's levels and follow people the path of peace become self Buddha but there will be only one Original Buddha and he is Gautam Buddha. ( Full Answer )
Well... He was a prince. He must have lived a very privileged, very lonely childhood
The most important day for Buddhist is Wesak Day when we remember His birth, His enlightenment and His death. Wesak Day is around the 15 day of the 4th moon in lunar calender. However, in lunar calender there is possible leap month, i.e. we may have two consecutive 4th moon (4th month) or two 9th mo…nth, and so on. Should we have a double 4th month, then Wesak Day will be commonly observed during the month of May (universal calender). For example, if the first 4th month falls within the month of May, then we do not observe the 2nd 4th month(possibly late May or early June). I found different years cited as Buddha's birth year. They were 560, 563, 564, 623 and 624 BCE. Almost all sources cited the full moon of May as the birth date, although 2 sources cited April 8.. The May full moons for these years are: May 7, May 11, May 21, May 14 and May 25. April 8 was a full moon in 560 BCE.. The Cambridge and Oxford histories of India accept 483 B.C as the date of Buddha's nirvana. He was 80 years old when he died, so this puts his birth year at 563 BCE.. If we accept 563 BCE as Buddha's birth year, his birth date would be May 11.. However, in January 2006 an Indian historian challenged the historical assertion that Buddha was born between 560-624 BCE. He cites evidence that Buddha was born in 1887 BCE. Assuming he was born on the May full moon, his date of birth would be May 8, 1887 BCE. . from http://www.buddhistchannel.tv/index.php?id=10,2190,0,0,1,0:. "author Kota Nityananda Sastry in his latest book 'Age of Lord Buddha' makes a critical appreciation of available data compiled by Western historians who, he thinks, made a mess of Indian history.. Sastry quotes his father Kota Venkatachelam's treatise 'Age of Buddha, Mililnda & Amtiyoka', which establishes that Buddha lived between 1887 B.C and 1807 B.C.. Venkatachelam's book 'The Plot in Indian Chronology' had gone into the history and the missing links in the chronology of events in Indian history.. Sastry states that Western scholars arbitrarily skipped 12 centuries of Indian history because their 'hypothesis' about Alexander's invasion did not match with centuries-old Indian chronology.". And in my opinion, this sounds like just the sort of thing that eurocentric British historians would do.. "The author asserts that Buddha was the contemporary of Kshemajit, Bimbisara and Ajatasatru, the 31st, 32nd and 33rd kings of Magadh respectively. This has been corroborated by the Puranic as well as Buddhist historical evidence, he adds.. Ultimately, Dr Sastry quoting evidences comes to the conviction that Lord Buddha was born in 1887 B.C and attained Nirvana in 1807 B.C.". see http://www.buddhistchannel.tv/index.php?id=10,2190,0,0,1,0.

The study of these writings provides a step up for people seeking understanding of the "Big Questions". People of all types study Buddhism. If they like w…hat they see and use it, they are technically Buddhiists Joining Buddhism is not to be confused with shaving one's head and donning saffron robes in a lamasery. It is an a incorporation of the four noble truths and the remedies for desire into your life. The Dalai Lama advises people interested in Buddhism to examine it, take the parts that are useful and leave the rest. Nothing in Buddhist belief prevents a person from dual citizenship with other religions. Buddhism encourages kindness, compassion, moderation and sobriety. It discourages greed, egoism, cruelty, and laziness. All of the above are laid out with the approach that a person can take control of his own life and make it better. There are many types of Buddhist: . Some people are born into it. . Some people dismiss the idea of a supreme supernatural being (God(s)) and all the trappings of religion such as souls and eternal life. They may be attracted to Buddhism as a guideline for proper response to problems and life issues, without accepting the life after death or reincarnation considerations. .

Buddha' s religion was Buddhist. A way that you can remember that is: Take away the "ist" And add a small "a", Now you have the word Buddha And that's that for today! More information: The founder of Buddhism. Lord Buddha was a prince, who forsook the comforts of a palace to seek enlightenment. He r…ealised the essential unreality of the world, in the bliss of nirvana and spent the remainder of his life teaching others how to escape the endless cycle of birth and death. Buddha was born approximately 400 BC. He was a noble prince and it is said his father sought to shield the young prince Siddharta from the pain and suffering of the world. However, at one point, Buddha sought to find a greater meaning to life. So, in disguise, he left the Palace and wandered around the Kingdom. Here, Siddhartha came across, death, old age, illness and suffering. This showed him the transitory nature of life, so he resolved to seek the meaning of life. Siddhartha left the Palace, including his wife and child, and travelled into the forests to spend his time meditating with other ascetics. In his quest for enlightenment, the Buddha fasted excessively so his body wasted away; however, enlightenment remained a far cry. At one point, a passing women gave him some food to eat and the Buddha realised it was a mistake to seek enlightenment by torturing the body. He regained his strength and resolved to follow a 'middle path' of avoiding excesses of fasting and feasting. On one day, the Buddha decided to sit under a Buddha tree until he attained enlightenment. For several days, he sat in meditation seeking nirvana. He was tested by various forces which tried to prevent him realising the goal. However, the Buddha was successful and entered in the blissful consciousness of nirvana for several days. On returning to normal consciousness, The Buddha made the decision to spend the remainder of his life teaching others how to escape the inherent suffering of life. For many years, the Buddha travelled around India, especially around the Ganges plain and in Nepal, teaching his philosophy of liberation. His teachings were transmitted orally and not written down until many years after his death. ( Full Answer )

His question was "How can sentient beings be cured of suffering?" His answer was: (1) That we need to first understand the source of the suffering, which is primarily that we have an incorrect understanding of the world which leads us to cling to our views of the world and things in it as (A) …permanent, (B) able to satisfy us, and (C) our mistaken belief that we as individuals have a permanent self (2) We need to learn to let go of these mistaken beliefs (3) In letting go, we will realize the cessation of our suffering and (4) We need to cultivate a path that he outlines to get there, one that offers solid guidance on living a moral life filled with lovingkindness, a life of practice of concentration and mindfulness, a practice which develops wisdom and insight.

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. ( Full Answer )
