Siddhartha Gautama also known as the “The

Siddhartha Gautama also known as the “The Enlightened One” recognized that money and belongings do not give us true happiness in life, he then decided to explore what really is religion and philosophy to help him define what true happiness is and what is the key to attain this. Through many years of meditation and studying, he was enlightened. He then spent the rest of his life teaching or what you call dharma. Basically, Buddhism is about having compassion while having the right wisdom in which you do meditate a lot to help one to be mindful of others and to be aware.
Buddhism teaches about karma which refers to the actions that come from the personal intentions and bring about a consequence or result from that action. It teaches us that the things we do or have done in the past can affect our future. Every time a person acts there is a corresponding consequence or effect based on the intentions of the doer of the action in which Buddhism have two types of karma which is good karma and bad karma. Application of this concept can somehow make a change through our world today because only if we have good intentions in our actions we could have been living peacefully. Our mind will be constantly reminded that in every action that we make there is a consequence that comes after it.
The main goal in Buddhism is attaining Nirvana, which means “Awakening” or “Enlightenment” and also Buddhists consider someone who achieve this state a Buddha. Basically, in this concept any form of suffering, craving for earthly desires is gone or extinct. If we apply this on our lives, we should aim to be free from hate, greed and delusion which our world is filled with.
In conclusion, Buddhism has great concepts to begin with because they value having ethical conducts which is helpful in our world full of sufferings. We live in world which is nothing permanent because all of us constantly change; all of our actions have definite consequences because what we sow is what we reap; and change is inevitable. Buddha or Siddhartha Gautama explored and study to develop wisdom in order for him to help other people realise what they should do to have a happy life which is enlightened. Buddhist value compassion because they believe that wisdom comes from compassion. Compassion for other people can help us understand not only ourselves but other people as well, with wisdom. They really keep track their actions because they think of the karma that comes with it. But this can only be effective if people only have good intentions in mind because we know that we form our future from our thoughts, actions and words. But many of us do not know that we compile positive and negative impressions from our actions but if you know this, we could control how our lives should be because we can choose to do good things rather than bad things. Buddhism values “No Self” because for them valuing others rather than yourself is better. Because everybody has problems and with the right meditation and with the combination of compassion and wisdom you will value others too. Buddhism has a very interesting and life changing concepts which can really have an effect our world today.
