Buddhism: The Origin and Denominations of Buddhism

Buddhism was born around the 5th century BC by Gautama Siddhartha (Gautama Buddha).

This religion was born in the eastern part of India, Bodh Gaya.

It first spread to the Ganges basin and then spread throughout Asia.

Currently, Buddhism is one of the “three religions” in China. (The other two are Taoism and Confucianism)

Buddhists basically consider life to be painful.

However, it seems that it can be overcome by training.

Buddhism is divided into “Mahayana Buddhism” and “Theravada Buddhism”.

In particular, Mahayana Buddhism has spread to the Korean Peninsula and Japan via China.

Theravada Buddhism, on the other hand, was mainly introduced to Southeast Asia.
