nine aspects in Buddhism
Buddhism as religion
Buddhism as logical system
The profound knowledge (abhinhamma),especially "the text of saying" (kathavathupakarana) give the full essence of logcial science. Read it and you will see the meaning of the profound logic which concerns the ceasing of suffering.
These words of the Buddha were intended to convince the leaders of other groups who held extreme view. The sayings employ the logical form to persuade other leaders to accept the Buddha's teaching.
Buddhism as sociology
Sociology here means principles for living together. Buddhism provide a completely practical rule for peaceful coexistence. The set called "house holder's moral code" is especially useful. Very simply, all thing around us, such as, mother, father, relatives, friend, and even animals deserve loving kindness.
Buddhism as science
Science exposes reality beyond all doubt as evidently logical and understandable. In the same way , Buddhist doctrine exposes the nature of life. Understanding of reality is available to all, and once understood can never be doubted.
Four noble truths : if not practiced completely as well as believed, remain unilluminated philosophy. When practiced completely, the four noble truths (including the noble eightfold path) become a science which exposes reality; reality which can be directly perceived without any doubt. Therefore the four noble truths should be practiced until they become scientific method.
Buddhism as etymology
The tri-pitaka, uses a connection system and conjunction which make many word into one word which a particular meaning, word with a particular meaning. The Buddha himself, when speaking to an etymological system because he wanted his disciples to be learned and precise.
Buddhism as morality
Buddhism is concerned with society and the good joy of everyone. Living together peacefully is the main purpose of homerun society. The real point is universal love, universal loving kindness, and non-violence towards one another. If we all love one anther as we love ourselves-or even more so-we will have the foundations of morality.
Buddhism as health
Health is the soundness of physical and mental energies. Human
disease and pain reseat from and unhealthy or heedless mind, one which is ill
and worried. A person who has practiced buddhist teaching rightly will be of
good mind and body. Therefore, come to practice dhamma which bring the correct
behavior as follows:
1. Mindfulness and stable mind
2. Humility and unrecklessness
3. End of greed, hate and delusion
4. Cultivation of breathing in and out rithly.
Buddhism as philosphy
Those who study with reason only will not realize insight. But those who practice until they finally reach arahantship will understand all thing clearly. At this point Buddhism is not a philosophy anymore.
Buddhism as histopry and archeology
If foreigners want to know about the archeology of humanity, the government, economy, etc. of ancient india, all this can be learned from the tripitaka.
