The cause of this Kamma, continues the Buddha, is avijja or ignorance of the Four Noble Truths. Ignorance is, therefore, the cause of birth and death; and its transmutation into knowingness or vijja is consequently their cessation.

Historians have done extensive research and found that before 1600s, nearly 100% of the Chinese population was Buddhist. This was due to minimal contact to the outside world. However, in the late 1800s and the early 1900s immigrants flock to China and Japan.Within the immigrants, millions were either Christian or Catholic.

Bao lâu Nghiệp Lực tồn tại thì còn luân hồi, vì con người chỉ là biểu tượng cụ thể của Nghiệp Lực (Kammic force) không trông thấy nầy. Chết không gì khác hơn là sự chấm dứt tạm thời của hiện tượng tạm bợ ấy, chứ không phải là sự hủy diệt hoàn toàn của con người đó. Cuộc sống hữu cơ kết thức, nhưng Nghiệp Lực tồn tại hoàn toàn không bị xáo trộn bởi sự tan rã của thân xác nhất thời nầy: sự chấm dứt chập tư tưởng (cuối cùng) của người chết hiện tại quyết định một thức mới trong kiếp sống sau.
In the middle of the fifteenth day of the second month at the time of the full moon, when Mahamaya was in retreat, the Lord Buddha entered her womb through the right side.

In the months to come, she had many other auspicious dreams, and experienced bliss and freedom from afflicting emotions

As a child, Siddhartha the Buddha, was troubled by some of the same thoughts that children today have. They wonder about birth and death. They wonder why they get sick and why grandfather died. They wonder why their wishes do not come true. Children also wonder about happiness and the beauty in nature. Because the Buddha knew what was in the hearts of children and human kind, he taught everyone how to live a happy and peaceful life. Buddhism is not learning about strange beliefs from faraway lands. It is about looking at and thinking about our own lives. It shows us how to understand ourselves and how to cope with our daily problems.

Over a long history of 2,500 years, the Buddha’s teaching is the timeless truth of Buddhism. His doctrine continues to provide the benefits to the Truth seekers with their various levels of understanding and spiritual maturity like a beautiful gem that is attracting people of diverse personalities. The question before me is, “What are the potential responses of Buddhism to modernity?” I believe that Buddhism itself has rich potential responses to eliminate suffering and promotes happiness for human beings in any time.
