4: "Renunciation is not getting rid of the things of this world, but accepting that they pass away." - Aitken Roshi | Beliefs | a single force: Brahman | job of the self (atman) to seek this "ultimate reality" & join Brahman after death | reincarnation: rebirth of the soul in a new body | karma | dharma | ~ the concept that you are rewarded or punished according to your deeds | ~ natural laws provided by the cosmos

5: "A person consists of his faith. Whatever is his faith, even so is he." - Hindu proverb | The Four Noble Truths: | 1. dukhka - existence is suffering 2. trishna - the cause of suffering is craving & attachment 3. nirvana - freedom from suffering by achieving enlightenment 4. There is a path to enlightenment called | The "Eightfold Path" | which means you have the right: views, resolve, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness, and concentration... | and have deserved Nirvana.

The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self." -Hindu Proverb | Texts/Writings | All religious beliefs come from Vedas | Bhagavad Gita - India's great poem. | ~ a collection of hymns and religious ceremonies, passed down from earlier generations.

9: "Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity." - Buddha | Tripitaka | There is no "Buddha Bible." Instead, there are many writings and scripture. These are believed to be teachings of the historic Buddha or enlightened masters. | All sacred texts are thought of as "guidelines" to the path of truth, not truth itself. | ~ the earliest collection of Buddhist writing
