Know Buddhism in nutshell
Buddhism is the way of life or path of inner awakening or Dharma followed in many countries of eastern and central Asia based upon the teachings of Gautama Buddha with the assumption that suffering or strife or Dkkha is inherent in life and the prime purpose of human life is get liberated from desires or attain Nirvana.

The word Buddha means "Awakened One" - the one who has realised this state by realising four Noble Truths: Inherent Dukkha; desires as causal of Dukkha; awakeing by ending Dukkha by being desireless; and purity of process for Nirvana.

Purity of process is acquired by abstinence from killing of living beings; taking that which not given or stealing; sensual gratifications including sexual misconduct; false speech; intoxicants or drugs.

Here are the ABCs of Buddhism:

A: Ahimsa doctrine or non-violence

B: Being Boddhi or striving for spiritual development

C: Conducting a life of abstinence from lying, intoxication, sensual gratification, killing and stealing

D: Dhrama as living life with compassion and wisdom with least desires

E: Enlightenment as aim of light through spiritual awakening with profound insights in meaning and purpose of life
