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”.

What are the Four Noble Truths?
  • The first was that life is suffering
      • You can’t live without death, frustration, etc.

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