Siddhartha Gautama
(Buddha, approx. 500 B.C.)

This is the true modern Buddhism. It is not a religion, but above all a learned philosophy to live happier and with more satisfaction.

Through modern Buddhism, every human gets a deep understanding of the things of the world, as well as the resulting actions. Every effect has a natural cause. This leads after some time to great serenity, partial mental superiority, and inevitably then also to the individually desired life success (luck).

Buddha was not a god, a saint or a prophet, and we not pray to him.

Meditating Buddhists are still misinterpreted as prayers. But in true Buddhism, however, there are no supernatural beings (god, gods, etc.) with directly influence of the peoples life. Everything depends only on the actions of each individual, and rests solely upon pure cause and effect. There are no divine rewards or penalties, sins, or forgiveness, or other similar things.

Buddhism and Hinduism.

Buddha himself was originally Hindu, and so his own Hindu beliefs of rebirth were partially integrated by him. However not as in the original as a wandering of the soul, but according to the Buddha, only the stored good and bad essence information of a human (karma) is passed on. Similar to modern genetics.

The goal of traditional Buddhists is to achieve a great spiritual maturity (awakening, enlightenment) in order to prevent a renewed spread of karma. This is the only way to make it possible to go after dead to Nirvana with the own existing essence (karma). Nirvana is very difficult to translate, and is even more difficult to describe. It means absolutely nothing. A place of absolute bliss where all earthly needs are extinguished. According to Siddhartha Gautama, he had succeeded in awakening during his lifetime. Buddha (literally "Awakened") is a title of honor, referring to this event..

In real Buddhism (in contrast to Hinduism), the debate around the death is not very important. It was much more important for Buddha to defeat suffering in his normal life. His goal was to help all people to live a happier life. Other ideas which also make people happy, e.g. a divine paradise, to whose admission a merciful God invites the good people, are therefore also absolutely tolerated in Buddhism.

Buddhism in combination with other religions.

Since there is no supernatural (religious, divine) component in Buddhism itself, Buddha's doctrine appears in connection with other religions or beliefs. This is due to the need of human beings to pray to a higher being or a god for protection and assistance. In real everyday Buddhism in Asia these are the Hindu / Indian gods, as well as the people belief in diverse spirits and demons. Buddhist temples are therefore decorated with pictures or sculptures of various gods and spiritual beings of other faiths.

Even as a believing Christian, Muslim or Jew, you can always become familiar with the pure Buddhist philosophy. There is not a single thing that would violate a commandment of your faith. On the contrary, you will learn more about the psyches and the behavior of the people, and you understand better why your god (e.g. Allah) has issued special rules (commandments and prohibitions) for the benefit of all.

Powerful meditation, but never worship.

So do not visit any Buddhist events where other divinities are additionally worshiped, or Buddha or other awakened in the prizip are equated with a God. Avoid special Buddhist rituals such as recitations or prayers. This especially if you do not understand the wording, often in a foreign language. Buddha was not a god, he was a human and is long time dead. Therefore, he can neither be promoted, nor sought for help. Do not follow the examples or teachings of any practicing groups doing these stupid things.
