Religious Devotion

I don’t have any sources to cite, but I heard on the news today that religious devotion in the United States is at a high. Nearly all people polled at least say they believe in God. Also, Americans now accept and like religion in politics much more than most other countries. Interesting.

Four Noble Truths

  1. Suffering exists
  2. Suffering arises from attachment to desires
  3. Suffering ceases when attachment to desire ceases
  4. Freedom from suffering is possible by practicing the Eightfold Path: Right View, Right Thought, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Contemplation
