Oh hello. I didn't see you there. I hope I wasn't bothering you; I was just practicing Buddhism. You want an overview of it? You got it! Let's go!
You see, Buddhism is considered one of the larger religions. It is practiced by around 470 million people around the world!
The people who practice it don’t acknowledge a supreme god or deity. They instead focus on achieving enlightenment—a state of inner peace and wisdom.
Buddhism is a faith that was founded by Siddhartha Gautama (“the Buddha”) more than 2,500 years ago in India. Its practice has historically been most prominent in East and Southeast Asia, but its influence is growing in the West. Many Buddhist ideas and philosophies overlap with those of other faiths.
The path to enlightenment is attained by utilizing morality, meditation and wisdom. Buddhists often meditate because they believe it helps awaken truth.
Well, that's it for now; I have to get home. Hope you learned a thing or two about Buddhism!
