Today we are learning about the Four Noble Truths and why they are important to Buddhists.
Watch this short video to find out about them:
What are the Four Noble Truths?
Think about: Have there been times when you have wanted things which you don’t need. Did you always get them? What reasons were given? How did you feel?
Imagine that you had a number on your table at school. If you have number 1 they will have an extra 5 minutes play, Number 2 an extra 7 minutes play, Number 3, an extra 10 minutes play and Number 4 no minutes play.
Is this fair? How does it feel to have more or less than others?
- Buddha would say that if we always want what other people have, we will never be happy.
- We should always be happy with what we have even if you got no prize!
- You should always think about what other things you have and how lucky you are
- If all people did this the world would be happy.
