Religion is the subject of controversial. Buddhism is the religion which helps individual to focus on direct internal observation of the condition of human. The founder of Buddhism religion is Gautama Buddha who is known as Siddhartha Gautama. Buddha is the Sanskrit or pali word which means “one who was awakened”. The main aim of Buddha behind this religion to reject all caste system and wanted to make everyone responsible for their own faith. The Buddha was son of the king and had all luxurious things with him. As he reached manhood, he was faced with sick man, an old man and a corpse. These all stages and conditions affected Buddha profoundly (Conze, 2013). He came to know after seeing this stages that no wealth, pleasure and power could prevent from illness, old age and death. Most of the time of his entire life, Buddha spend in self-reflection or meditation to free themselves from opinion of inadequacy. What he had seen it reflecting on him and he practiced the trance like meditation and taught for 45 years and in the resulted his teaching touched issues in the conduct of life of human (Lopez Jr, 2015).
Buddhism is one of the largest religions in the world. It is the religion that leads people in the spiritualization rather than teachings of religious. It is believe of Buddhist that suffering is a vital part of the existence of life. On account of the temporary time spent in human life, suffering is considered as inescapable from the origin to the end of one’s life. Buddhism tried to end that suffering by developing the teaching of Noble truths. There are four noble truths first is frustrating, second noble truth is suffering, third noble truth is that reason of suffering can be finished and the fourth noble truth is the way to finish the reason of suffering (Known, 2013). Along with that, Buddhist accepts the eightfold way of wisdom (intention, liberation, opinion and knowledge), ethical conduct and concentration. These ways can be achieved through an individually or together. The religion of Buddhism is peaceful which tries to maintain ethical conduct in order to obtaining spiritual nirvana. It is the religion which focuses to bring in the pure mind and picking the correct actions so that corruption or harm could not survive in the environment (Jackson and Makransky, 2013).
In the religion of Buddhism, Buddhist does not pray any deities rather that they worship to get peace from inner soul. It has been concluded that inner peace is higher than the temporary peace. There are so many people who have heard of Nirvana. It is equivalent with eastern version of Heaven. Nirvana refers cessation that includes aggression, passion and the cessation of the struggle to show the dignity of our existence to the world so that one can survive. Buddhism teaches that for living there is no need to survive. All people have survived already. The struggle was considered as an extra complication that people add on in their lives because they had lost believes and confidence in the way things is.
