to live with Buddhas principles, living and learning
reality without Dukkha - not suffering too much.
Welcome is any comment, additional data or needed correction on
this site or the
which has been compiled ex wikipedia and other internet sides as contributed by many most learned
It is so
hard to mindfully consolidate Buddhist scriptures, in which Buddha
denounced his wealth and rejected materialism, gold and money but people in
his honour plaster gold on his crazy huge statues and temples making temples
humongous buildings instead of making nature their temple as he did while
living under a tree.
in all of human history is by far the most warmongering source of conflicts,
causing dead and
despair for many many millions and extreme suffering. Many religions have
been kidnapped by parasites who found it a way to obtain a good
regular salary and social status, not unknown trying to cover-up big crimes,
atrocities and criminals. Large institutions have been created with empire
like organizations, control and buildings meanwhile compiling enormous
wealth without effective or good objectives to use.
should only be defined as a designated for all humans to live by in harmony,
social cultural system for human behaviour which most unfortunately have
never been accomplished.
believe dictates that there exists no God and worship should be focused on
your own personal inner seeking of non-material growth to the ideal state of
nirvana, living in peace and harmony with all humans and nature.
Letís all only do that for the benefit of all humans and this planet.

The time of
Gautama's birth and death are uncertain
or invented. No actual written
word by Buddha himself has never been found, so all his words are "hearsay"
needing to most critically consider Buddhism what it really is and what it needs to
be for you.
Teachings should not be accepted unless they are borne
out by our experience and are praised by the wise.
Kalama Sutta for
anitya): That all things that come to be have
That nothing which comes to be is ultimately
anātman): That nothing in the realm of
experience can really be said to be "I" or "mine".
According to tradition,
the Buddha emphasized ethics and correct understanding.
He questioned everyday notions of divinity and salvation. He stated that there is
no intermediary between mankind and the
distant gods are subjected to
themselves in decaying heavens; and the Buddha is only a guide and teacher for beings who must tread the path of
Nibbāna) themselves to attain the spiritual
understand reality. The Buddhist system of insight and
meditation practice is
not claimed to have been divinely revealed, but to spring from an understanding
of the true nature of the mind, which must be discovered by treading the path
guided by the Buddha's teachings.
As writing was
uncommon in India at the time Gautama lived, everything we know about him was
carefully memorized and passed on orally until it was written down, probably
during the first century BCE.

Factors of Enlightenment
So if the contents of the
knowledge is correct, why does Buddhism
in the world drift so far away from what Gautama Buddha
? Why making Buddha a god despite that he said there are no gods.
Similar as with other religions and beliefs, it looks like his (early)
followers, took possession of the principles and created a god with matching
rules, attributes and ceremonies supporting monks and temples is that what Buddha
has taught ?
Why are so many temples not reflecting the humble most modest living
of Buddha, but are temples extravagant and competing with each other in
What is true spirit of Gautama Buddha ?
