Write a 1- to 2-paragraph response for each of the following.
1. Explain the basic Buddhist teachings including the three marks of reality, the Four Noble Truths, and the Noble Eightfold Path.
The Four Noble Truths are that you are aware that suffering exist and can happen. When you stop the suffering is when you don’t attach yourself from what you like and want. When you are free of this can achieve a self awaking. You can practice the eight fold path to achieve this plan, and also learn the basic practices of wisdom, ethical conduct and of course concentration. The three markings of Buddhist teaching are suffering, impermanence, and egolessness. Which they teach that you can be over suffering in the Four Noble Truths practice, and ego can be change with the Noble Eightfold Path which is a ethical conduct. Impermanence is when you are not liberated, but with the Buddhist teaching you can be liberated with the teaching like the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path.
2. Describe the three major Buddhist traditions—Theravada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana—and how each tradition developed from the early teachings.
I am not too sure if this is correct but there are 3 councils in the Buddhist tradition. The first one is the Theravadin School. This school was made about 100 years after Buddha passed away. The other ones are The Dharma, and the Vinaya which were created months after Buddha passed away. Buddhist have vehicles and all have the wisdom with the mind, and body. They all have ways of how to be pure and kind to yourself and others.
