Buddhism is a living spiritual tradition which has direct relevance to the way we live our lives now.It shows and teaches ways of developing confidence, energy, contentment and friendliness and kindness to others.
There are many Buddhist schools and traditions of practice. All recognise the Buddha as a spiritual teacher who attained enlightenment and then taught the path for others to follow and practice.
Following this path with sufficient dedication and effort will lead to attaining what the Buddha attained.
