Buddhism was 2,500 years ago, in India. Buddhism is the dominant religion of the Far East, and is increasingly popular in the West. One general doctrine agreed upon by Buddhists is: "We do not believe that this world is created and ruled by a God." However, they are not considered atheistic. , Their primary purpose of life is to end suffering. The Buddha taught that humans suffer because we continually strive after things that do not give lasting happiness. We desperately try to hold on to things important to us, and cause us to suffer. Buddha’s teachings were focused entirely on this problem and its solution. (LR)
