Project #75017 - Buddhism - 150 words per question (5 questions)

WRITE WITH OWN WORDS, NO DEFINITION 

easy project, easy money.

  1. Explain the meaning of the four noble truths.  Do not react to them but rather try to make sense of them from the point of view of a Buddhist.

  2. We know that the goal of Buddhism is enlightenment.  Consider the principle or nirvana.  What exactly does it mean?  Why is it so important to Buddhism?  How do you reconcile nirvana with individual identity?

  3. Let us consider the differences between Theravada and Mahayana Buddhism.  One difference that is important in understanding how Buddhism changes when it is absorbed by Chinese societies is the concept of the afterlife.  In foundational Buddhism there is no afterlife.  However by the time Buddhism arrives in China there is a Buddhist heaven and hell.  How is this the case?  What are other differences between the two schools of Buddhism?

  4. A problematic principle of Buddhism is happiness or perhaps more precisely the pursuit of happiness.  It is much more likely that a Buddhist would use the idea of contentment over happiness.  Why is happiness such a trap to Buddhists?  What might the appeal for the idea of contentment?

  5. Now that you have thought a little more about Buddhism and its characteristics, what do you think are the most important things necessary to know in understanding this religion?  Review this website http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/buddhism/.  Describe some aspect of Buddhism from this website that strikes you as important.
