Buddhist do not believe in God, focusing less on their internal beliefs and more so on their actions and good deeds to others. The task at the center of Buddhism is to eliminate suffering and its causes while nourishing vitality, joy and peace.
Buddhists believe in the Four Noble Truths about reality:
- All life is inevitably sorrowful
- Sorrow is the result of cravings
- Sorrow can only end when cravings are stifled or stopped
- Careful discipline and moral conduct are necessary to end cravings.
They practice being selfless through meditation and prayer.
