Buddhism:-(Kingdoms of Republics)
1. In 563 B.C. the Buddha was born as prince Siddhartha in the Shakya tribe in Lumbani forest (Now in Nepal) near Kapilavastu. He left his home at the age of 30 and went into jungles for self mortification. The Buddha taught four noble truths, (i) There is suffering in the world,(ii) The suffering has a cause, (iii) The cause is desire, (iv) It is possible to put and end to suffering if desire is removed.
2. The Buddha stressed the importance of the ‘Middle Path’.
3. The Buddha rejected the authority of the Vedas.
4. He formed ‘Sanghas’ to spread Buddhism.
5. The monks and nuns made the ‘Doctrine of Panchsheel’ and ‘Ahimsa’ most popular. Buddhism spread over Central Asia, China, Tibbet, Japan, Korea, Sri Lanka. The Mauryan Emperor Ashoka helped to spread Buddhism widely in abroad.
6. Later on, the followers of the Buddha divided themselves into two sects, (1) Hinayana (2) Mahayana. The former school ( Hinayana ) laid emphasis on the salvation of the individual by directly observing the ‘Eight Fold Path’. The Mahayana school, on the other hand, started worshipping the Buddha as a god and stressed that salvation is open to all and not merely to monks and nuns.
7. Buddha died in 483 B.C. The event of death is known as ‘Mahaparinirvana’. After the death four Buddha Sangiti have taken place.
