|The Religion of Buddha: The religion of Buddha began in 563 B.C. If you believe in Buddha, you are called a Buddhist. Buddhists believe in karma and rebirth. Karma determines in which form a person is reborn and rebirth is a second birth. Also, Buddhists believe in the Three Universal Truths.|
First, everything in life is constantly changing and impermanent. Second, everything is unsatisfactory in life because everything is impermanent. Finally, there is the Third Universal Truth which means that there is no eternal soul. What is called the "self "is just a bunch of changing characteristics.
Buddha was a real person who taught this religion. He lived to the age of 80. Buddha was a prince, better known as Sidhatta Gotama. The young prince taught many things. One of which are The Four Noble Truths. The Four Noble Truths are along the same lines as the Three Universal Truths. Buddha's life ended in about 483 B.C., though Buddhism is still continued today.
