Buddhism Philosophy & Teachings

Schools of Buddhism | Introduction

We will give next a general historical account of the chief branches of Buddhist thought in India such as Vaibhasikas, Sautrantikas, Yogacaras and Madhyamikas and briefly show their relation to the central teachings of the Buddha such as three fundamental principles of Impermanence (anitya), Sorrow (duhkha), and Non-self (anātman).

Dharma Theory. Introduction.

Dharma probably is the most significant term that we should understand, when we want to understand the Buddhist philosophy. You probably have seen statements like “Buddha dharma”, “go for a refuge to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha”, or if you love to read books, you may find that “all dharmas are empty”. What does it mean?

Nowadays many in the western countries believe in this or another way that reincarnation is a truth. But quite often I have had a feeling that an understanding, the way they use to think about it, is inappropriate.
