The history of buddhism l.jpg
The History of Buddhism

  • It was all started by Buddha, who was a prince in Lumbini, 2500 years ago.

  • He was very unhappy in his royal life, so he set off on a 6 year journey, exploring other religions.

  • After his long journey and much meditation he was finally “enlightened”.

  • He found the middle path, the key to human happiness. For the rest of his life he wandered Asia, preaching his new religion.

What are the four noble truths l.jpg
What are the Four Noble Truths?

  • The first was that life is suffering

    • You can’t live without death, frustration, etc.

  • The second is that suffering is caused by craving and aversion

    • Getting what you want doesn’t guarantee happiness, it deprives you of it

  • The third is that suffering can be overcome, and true happiness attained

    • If we stop craving useless things, and live each day at a time (not living in the future) we will be happy and free.

  • The fourth is that the Noble eight fold path leads to the end of all suffering
