Transcript of BUDDHISM

life and legend
the Dharma/Dhamma
three turnings
"He will deliver by the boat of knowledge the distressed world."
the four noble truths
1 - life is suffering (dissatisfaction, anxiety, etc.) (dukkah)
2 - dukkah is caused by craving, the condition of ignorance
3 - dukkah can be overcome OR suffering will end when craving and clinging cease
4 - the way to overcome suffering is the Eightfold Path
"dhama has nothing to do with the dogma that the world is eternal; and it has nothing to do with the other dogma that the world is not eternal. For whether the world is eternal or otherwise, birth, old age, death, sorrow, pain, misery, grief, and despair exist. I am concerned with the extinction of these."
