Van Milligen Buddhism PowerPoint

Transcript: Buddhism By: Isabella Van Milligen Buddhism is a religion that focuses on personal spiritual development. The Buddhism faith does not worship a God (which makes some scholars question if it is a religion), and is practiced through meditation. The main goal of the Buddhism faith is to achieve kindness, awareness, and wisdom. What is Buddhism? What is Buddhism Buddhism originated in Northern India in mid-sixth to mid-fourth centuary BCE, by the teachings of Buddha. Buddha was considered the awakened one, who formed the entire foundation for the religion. History History The main goal of Buddhism is to achieve peace, also known as Nirvana. To do this, you must be accepting, self loving, and at peace with yourself and the world. It can take Buddhists years to achieve this, and once they achieve Nirvana they are fully fullfilled. Many Buddhists have attempted to describe Nirvana, but many say the feeling is truly unexplainable. Element #1~ Experiential Topic 2 The history of Buddhism is centered around the story of Buddha himself. Buddha was a man of wealth, until one day he came into contact with the old, poor, and sick. He then felt bad about having so much when these people had so little, so he entered extreme poverty. After almost dying due to starvation, he realized there needed to be a middle part, where you are neither rich nor poor, simply in the middle. This began the religion of Buddhism. Element 2~ Mythic/Historic Topic 3 The first main doctrine of Buddhism is the middle way; to make sure you are neither rich nor poor, simply in the middle. The second doctrine is that every human needs to experience suffering in order to be human. The last main doctrine is made up of four noble truths: live to suffer, suffering is caused by desire, suffering can be brought by cessatation, and finally suffuring is the eightfold path. Element #3~ Doctrinal Topic 4 There are five main ethical rules to Buddhism; do not take life, do not take what is not given, do not engage in sensuos misconduct, do not use false speech, and do not drink intoxicants. This applies to all Buddhists, however there are more rules for monks and nuns. Element #4~ Ethical Topic 4 Because there are so many different types of Buddhism, there are many different rituals. Some rituals can include; worship and prayers to Buddha, or ritually chant mandala's. However the main ritual across all Buddhism is meditation, because it is the center of the religion. Element #5~ Ritual Topic 4 One of the aspects of Buddhism is helping those around you, and enlightening them. It is encouraged to help share advice and teachings to fellow Buddhists, so today there are many meetings where Buddhists come together to share and learn about eachothers experiences and troubles. Element #6~ Social Topic 4 Some material aspects of Buddhism include; mandala's, bodhi trees, tibet (their homeland) and dalai lama (the Buddhists leader) Element #7~ Material Topic 4
