A Glance to Buddhism and Meditation

Buddhism is a teaching started by Siddhartha Gautam who was named Buddha after got enlightened, which means above intelligence. Buddhism is one of the oldest religions said to be formed before 500 BC. This religion believes that suffering exists, and human intelligence is the origin of suffering. Buddhism also believes that humans are capable of ending this suffering.

Buddhism says that survival was never a cause of human suffering. Humans had attained suffering after their survival was addressed. Buddhism believes that your thoughts and karma is a tool that will define your destination. You can not harvest happiness by sowing misery. The day humans got consciously aware of their thought process and action then only they can attain pleasure. Otherwise, life will be just an accident where you will have no control but, you have to bear that immense pain.

Buddhism is not a religion it is a medication, it is a method to get rid of suffering. According to Buddhism, if we will practice the eightfold path suggested by Lord Buddha we can alleviate suffering. They are Right Action, Right Resolve, Right Speech, Right Conduct, Right livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Concentration. The one who will practice this eightfold path will attain nirvana and get released from the cycle of birth and death, which is called samsara.

What is meditation? How to do it? Why meditation? These are the very fundamental queries that need to be addressed. Meditation is the practice of mindfulness and concentration to achieve perfect alignment of mind, body, and energy. Whether you are on the way to success or inner peace, meditation is the mandatory step. There is no certain way to do meditation. If you are aware you are meditative.
