"I believe that every human being has an innate desire for happiness and does not want to suffer. I also believe that the very purpose of life is to experience this happiness."
(The Dalai Lama)
Buddhism is one of the world's oldest and most widespread belief-systems. Virtually unknown outside Asia until the last century, it is now the fastest growing religion in the West and has nearly half a billion adherents throughout the world. What is it about Buddhism that is so attractive in an age when people seems to be turning away from organized religion?
The teachings of Buddhism are many and varied, and it has a well-developed philosophical and mystical dimension, but at its core is a simple set of propsitions and practices designed to meet the practical day-to-day concerns of ordianary people: how to live a compassionate, creative, wise and, above all, happy life.
