• What is Buddhism? Buddhism is a religion to about 300 million people around the world. The word comes from 'budhi', 'to awaken'. It has its origins about 2,500 years ago when Siddhartha Gotama, known as the Buddha, was himself awakened (enlightened) at the age of 35. • Is Buddhism a Religion?

Oṃ maṇi padme hūṃ [ 1 ] ( Sanskrit : ओं मणिपद्मे हूं , IPA: [õːː məɳipəd̪meː ɦũː] ) is the six-syllabled Sanskrit mantra particularly associated with the four-armed Shadakshari form of Avalokiteshvara (Tibetan Chenrezig , Chinese Guanyin ), the bodhisattva of compassion. Mani means "jewel" or "bead" and Padma means "the lotus flower ", the Buddhist Sacred Flower. It is commonly carved onto rocks or written on paper which is inserted into prayer wheels , said to increase the mantra's effects. [ edit ] Transliterations In English the mantra is variously transliterated , depending on the schools of Buddhism as well as individual teachers. Most authorities consider maṇipadme to be one compound word rather than two simple words. [ 2 ] Sanskrit writing does not have capital letters leaving capitalisation of transliterated mantras varying irrationally from all caps, to initial caps, to no caps.

In 386 the Northern Wei dynasty was declared by the Tuoba, a nomadic people from the north. As it consolidated power in north China during the fifth century, this non-Han dynasty found it beneficial to associate themselves with the burgeoning popularity of Buddhism. Despite this, the Northern Wei emperor Taiwu (r. 424-452) was persuaded by Daoist and Confucian officials at court to curb the Buddhist church.

Buddhism is a religion indigenous to the Indian subcontinent that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and practices largely based on teachings attributed to Siddhartha Gautama , who is commonly known as the Buddha (meaning "the awakened one" in Sanskrit and Pāli ). The Buddha lived and taught in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE. [ 1 ] He is recognized by Buddhists as an awakened or enlightened teacher who shared his insights to help sentient beings end suffering ( dukkha ) through eliminating ignorance ( avidyā ) by way of understanding and seeing dependent origination ( pratītyasamutpāda ) and eliminating craving ( taṇhā ), and thus attain the cessation of all suffering, the sublime state of nirvāņa . [ 2 ] Two major branches of Buddhism are generally recognized: Theravada ("The School of the Elders") and Mahayana ("The Great Vehicle").
Hi Stumblers! Please see my spiritual newsletter My focus is not on rituals, symbolism or gods, but on the path that Buddhism points to and its vision on the nature of our every day "reality".
