Buddhism Beliefs by Eternal Buddhism.
This Buddhism Beliefs page is written by a mere human being who is not Enlightened in any way, but knows the Dharma Way and how to get to Nibbana. He is a being who meditates on a frequent basis, knows and understands the origin of Buddha’s supernatural powers, is familiar with Out-Of-Body-Experiences (OOBE) aka Astral Traveling and the path to real Enlightenment.
I am not here to prove the Dharma, because that is not what the Dharma is about. If you wish to attain true enlightenment, I do not ask for your complete acceptance of the Dharma. Know about the Dharma, test these Buddhism core Beliefs for yourself and you will realize if the Dharma is true or false.
Knowledge is the first step before real Enlightenment. However, Enlightenment can only be obtained by the diligent people who practice the Dharma on a hardworking basis – someone who is able to give up worldly attachments to the Material and Immaterial… Someone who is able to give up the sense of attachment to even the concept of Enlightenment itself. I am not one of them. However, there is one famous being who has accomplished it.
Buddha was freed from everything that wasn’t Nothing. It is an extremely hard task to do, especially in this modern urban age. Why so? That is because Enlightenment involves a profound understanding of the Nothing. It is the act of releasing all “ties” with everything you know, see, hear, desire. It is the release of your Ego. You no longer have a sense of “Yourself”, because you become One with the universe.
Even deities could not compete with the Buddha’s profound knowledge, because Buddha had the ability to completely go into absolute Nothingness (Nibbana) – a place of absolutely nothing… such that even Brahma (a God) is unable to find him.
As stated earlier, I am not an Enlightened being. You should only believe and trust whatever works for you when you practice – all I can offer are guidelines. You are to only trust yourself instead of religious texts, bibles, scriptures, rumors, and not even me. Certainly, I can give you an idea of the real Dharma, but I cannot force you to understand it. You need to understand it yourself.

This library will be expanded for a lifetime. Since the Internet is the fastest probable way of propagating information, this is the most effective way since writings in books. I hope that these interpretations can help to shape your understanding in the world as the Buddha did…
Let me put in a famous quote and an explanation behind it.
“Don’t blindly believe what I say. Don’t believe me, nor another, based on how others convince you with words. Don’t believe anything you read or hear, whether of tradition, authority, religious teachers or texts…..” (This is telling you that everything that is truthful in the world is impermanent – and that you should not trust any source… even this source.)
“…….Neither should you speculate, nor rely on logic alone…….” (Ironic, because some of these interpretations on the site are built on by little speculation… but if you understand the Truth, Buddha is telling you to seek the truth yourself in reality.)
“……Don’t be deceived by appearances. Find out for yourself what is true and virtuous. Abandon those things that lead to pain and suffering.” (All attachments are arbitary and deceiving. Concepts, thoughts, desires and immaterial things are the source of attachment, and only with the total relief of these unimportant things will you achieve Enlightenment.)
This quote was taken from the Anguttara Nikaya, Kalama Sutta, said by the Buddha.
Decay is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence.
