What Is Buddhism?

Understanding World Religions

Over 360 million Buddhists practice the religion of Buddhism in countries all around the world. In this programme, students take a detailed look at this religion and its rich history of over 2,500 years. Students gain insight into this religion by investigating its history and learning about Siddhartha Gautama, known as the Buddha, whose teachings provide a basis for Buddhism. To develop respect for the worship practices of Buddhists, students follow a family as they visit a Buddhist temple and worship in their home shrine. Students also gain an understanding of Buddhist traditions and beliefs through interesting interviews with monks and nuns, the spiritual leaders of Buddhism.
