Basics of Buddhism – Buddhism is a major global religion with a complex history and system of beliefs. The following is intended only to introduce Buddhism’s history and fundamental tenets, and by no means covers the religion exhaustively.
Life of the Buddha – According to tradition, the historical Buddha lived from 563 to 483 B.C., although scholars postulate that he may have lived as much as a century later. He was born to the rulers of the Shakya clan, hence his appellation Shakyamuni, which means “sage of the Shakya clan.”
Who Was the Buddha? – “Buddha” means “one who is awake.” The Buddha who lived 2,600 years ago was not a god. He was an ordinary person, named Siddhartha Gautama, whose profound insights inspired the world.
