Introduction to Buddhism in India: Buddhism in India
Two of the most prominent qualities associated with Buddhism are compassion and loving-kindness. It is important to cultivate these qualities and integrate them into one's daily life.
The no 7 article explores the two main Buddhist approaches to meditation - samatha (calm) and vipassana (insight), with particular emphasis on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness.
The sixth in this series of ten articles introduces some key Buddhist concepts. These are
impermanence, suffering, not-self and dependent origination. This fifth in a series of ten articles looks at the five precepts, the bedrock of the Buddhist moral code. It also touches on two specific moral issues - abortion and voluntary euthanasia. This fourth in a series of ten articles examines two key concepts: karma and rebirth. Both are very important to understanding Buddhism's moral dimension. The essence of the Buddha's teaching is encapsulated in the Four Noble Truths: the Noble Truth of Suffering, the Noble Truth of the Origin of Suffering, the Noble Truth of the Extinction of Suffering, and the Noble Truth of the Path that leads to the Extinction of Suffering. This second in a series of articles explores the life of the Buddha.
