Thread: Define Buddhism in 5 words or less

  1. #1

    Define Buddhism in 5 words or less

    Using 5 words or less answer one the following questions. How do you define Buddhism? What is its reason for its being? What attracts you to it? Why do continue to study Buddhism?, etc. Remember 5 words or less. The only rule is not to say "the end of suffering" which is way to obvious :-)

    My definition of Buddhism is "learning to just be"

    Love the answers. Sometimes it takes me a minute to understand the short answers. Once I do, I say to myself "Ohhh" then I smile and feel grateful.

    In The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a group of hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings demand to learn the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything from the supercomputer, Deep Thought, specially built for this purpose. It takes Deep Thought 7½ million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42. Deep Thought points out that the answer seems meaningless because the beings who instructed it never actually knew what the Question was.

    Le secret consiste donc seulement à dire "OUI" et à se jeter dans le vide. Dès lors, il n'y a plus de problème. Il s'agit d'être soi-même dans l'instant présent, toujours soi-même, sans s'accrocher à son vieux moi.
