Buddhism d Explain the origins of Buddhism. Describe Buddhism’s theological foundations and spiritual practices. ASSIGNMENTS 1. Read Ch. 5, 6, & 8 in Living Religions . 2. Discussion Question 1 e Due Date: Day 2 [ Main ] forum E Post your response to this question: How did the childhood experiences of Siddhartha Guatama (Buddha) lead to his questioning of the spiritual practices of his time? According to the “Four Sights” legend, the gods arranged for him to see the “four sights” that his father had tried to hide from him (a bent old man, a sick person, a dead person, and a monk seeking eternal rather than temporal pleasure). At the age of twenty-nine Siddhartha renounced his wealth, left his wife and newborn son (whom he named “Rahul,” or “fetter”), shaved his head, and donned the coarse robe of a wandering ascetic. He was later said to have adopted a very difficult goal: finding the way of total liberation from suffering.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
