Buddhism was born and thrived in India for 1700 years. Between the 5th century B.C. and 12th century A.D. the whole of India was rich with the culture of Buddhist life that spread to other parts of the world.

Buddhist India

Buddha gave his first discourse on four noble truths at Sarnath, India.

1. Suffering (Unsatisfaction)
2. The origin of suffering (craving for selfish desire).
3. The cessation of suffering (Nirvana).
4. The way leading to cessation of suffering (The noble eight fold path).

Suffering is Birth, Diseases, Old age, Death, not getting what one desires or getting what one does not desires. The origin of suffering is however craving (selfish desires) which is a result of ignorance. Nirvana (Cessation of Suffering) can be achieved by extinction of craving, greed, hate and delusion & consummation in peace and understanding. To achieve this he suggested 'the noble eight fold path.' These are understanding, thought, speech, action, livelihood, action, mindfulness, concentration.

If we wish to have inner peace, if we wish to live in a peaceful world, here and now & in the future, we must abandon the causes of suffering and cultivate love and understanding.
He also preached five percepts or rules of conduct:
1. Abstain from intentionally harming living beings.
2. Abstain from taking what is not given.
3. Abstain from sexual misconduct.
4. Abstain from lying & unkind speech.
5. Abstain from intoxiting drinks and drugs.
Loving Kindness Meditation May I be well and happy, May you be well and happy, May all beings be well and happy Peace, Peace, Peace.
