Buddhism - Beliefs
The Buddhist Religion
This site from the BBC is comprehensive and outlines the moral beliefs of Buddhists.
Buddhism is a spiritual tradition that focuses on personal spiritual development and the attainment of a deep insight into the true nature of life.
There is no belief in a personal god. Buddhists believe that nothing is fixed or permanent and that change is always possible. The path to Enlightenment is through the practice and development of morality, meditation and wisdom.
