Buddhism gives great importance to a control of greed , hatred and delusion . Buddhists also claim that the strength of the will is created by mindfulness . Wise men say :” Know thyself.” Contemplation and mindfulness help a man in identifying what is happening inside his mind .Buddhists claim that ignorance and sufferings are destroyed by understanding the concept of anatman , impermanence and Ultimate Reality . Buddhists say that mindfulness is created by remembering the teaching given by buddha. _____________________________ 8 Meditation :- Meditation is done by buddhists with aim to get insight .
The bhikkhu is one person who sets the right path for people to follow. The bhikkhu shows the people what virtues are positive and wholesome. The bhikkhu gives and receives from society and strives to cultivate the kind of mental state as prescribe by the Buddha.
The text refers to the attainment of wisdom as enlightenment. “Thus ignorance is declared to be the root of this great trunk of pain by all the wise; therefore it is to be stopped by those who seek liberation,” states the Buddha (The Buddhakarita of Asvaghosha 154.62). The image of pain as a tree suggests its inevitable place within the world. “Those who seek liberation” are those, like the Buddha, who want to escape the roots of pain. A wise man can overcome pain’s grip on their life by accepting this pain as an inescapable part of life on earth.
The Four Noble Truths of Buddhism capture ethos of the spirituality and its teachings. By just these four lessons, Buddha preaches the principles of tranquility within meditation of mere concentration. From these truths he developed a guidance referred to as the Eightfold Path, a series of principles that lead to awakening when practiced and understood. He preaches that inevitable suffering comes from desire, however he concludes with a solution to a life lived in nirvana. The first two of the Four Noble Truths are Dukha and Avidya, focusing on the primitive presence of suffering within day to day life.
He also reiterates that suffering can be found in every aspect of life. Furthermore, the Buddha introduces the theory of becoming enlightened. By properly dispelling the nonexistent self he leads his Bhikkhus and the reader towards the pathway of the well-taught noble disciple.
In this way, Buddhism turns in on itself, negating the existence of its own essence. I also pay special attention to the training of the bodhisattva, who has gained superior insight, and therefore practices the perfection of wisdom in a particular way. The Heart Sutra can be divided into different parts. Following the work of Lordo, I parse it into four main parts. The first section is the Introduction, consisting of two phrases that constitute a dedication, a declaration and a demonstration of dependency.
The objective of this truth is to promote a realistic view of the world and the human condition. The second truth explains the causes of suffering and explains how they are different for each individual person. The causes of suffering include cravings, self-desire, anger, envy, greed, etc. (Samovar et al., 2010).The Buddha’s teachings encourage his followers to see the world around them for what it is and not to mistake falsehoods as truth. The third truth informs Buddhists that because their suffering as an identifiable cause, it also has a solution (Samovar et al., 2010).
Thus, the realization of truth is also depends on his own. The freedom of thought of an individual allowed by the Buddha is unheard in other religions. Even though there is a big difference between Buddhism and other religious, the Buddha showed his embracement and peaceful mind. He thinks that one should not condemn other religions but should help all the others to grow. Then, the book addresses that Buddhism encourages people realizing the truth by seeing, knowing, understanding but not on faith or belief.
Those who have perceived this ultimate reality inherent in their own lives truly know themselves, they are Buddhas. (Introduction to Buddhism) The basic teaching of Buddha is formulated in the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. Preceding from the premise that suffering exists and that a release from it must be found, Buddha constructed his system. The First Noble Truth is to be understood, the universality of suffering. The Second Truth is to be abandoned, the desire to have and control things that cause suffering.
I believe that their worldview is plausible and is commonly accepted because every human being should strive to do the right thing by not being selfish, respecting others, not doing harm to others, being charitable, not lying etc. As far as existential viability, their worldview does a great job on assisting one in navigating through life. By assisting individuals to develop mental and moral purification, Buddhist are guiding one to be able to reach full enlightenment and live a life like the Buddha.
