Buddhist Culture

The Trace of Life

Buddhism originated around the sixth to fifth century BC. After Prince Siddhartha Gautama of Kapilavastu in ancient India (Nepal) left his family, became enlightened, and attained Buddhahood, he educated his disciples, and his teachings gradually developed into a religion. The objective of Buddhist cultivation is to thoroughly understand the truth of life and the universe. Buddhists want to cultivate themselves according to the Dharma to sever all their worries and sufferings, transcend the cycle of life and death, and attain ultimate emancipation.
