What is the sound of one hand clapping?

Born as a Himalayan prince-a special person decided-at the age of 29-to leave his comfort, to explore the world for the "truth", especially in regard to his fellow man's suffering.

Around 500 b.c.e., Siddartha Gautama realized that his new found severe aesthetic life was not leading him to the truth or to the Nirvana he sought after. After many days of fasting, his personal awakening came when he realized that the middle way was the key to man's enlightenment.

Although Buddhists don't believe in the concept of a "monotheistic G-D", Buddhism believes in an ultimate reality. A Causeless cause of all causes, unlimited and indefinable, and therefore non-discussionable as to the attributes of "THAT" which is.

The Buddha used reason and observation, over faith, to determine a path in which all people may attain "Buddhi Enlightenment".

It seems apparant. to this author, that the religions of Judaism and Christianity must have been deeply inflenced by the Buddha's teachings, especially in regards to mans' "right" conduct and moral living standards.

As with it's sister religion, Hinduism, the concepts of Karma, eternal soul, and reincarnation, play an important part of this religion/philosophy.

Buddhism is the world's 4th largest religion(6%),with a large following in the U.S.
