1 Title: Who was Buddha?  Do Now:  March is “National Sauce Month.” What is your favorite type of sauce? Be sure to include great descriptive words

2 Agenda  Do Now  Hinduism Review  Buddhism Lesson  Buddha Project

3 Objective  Students will create a picture mosaic of events from Buddha’s life surrounding the outline of Buddha to show comprehension of his life.

4 Hinduism Review  We learned a ton last week about Hinduism and I know it was confusing for some of you.  Today you are going to have a chance to review in your interactive notebooks.  You need to choose 2 sections to do from Hinduism:  Choose whichever topic you feel the LEAST comfortable with. This is a great way to get the information you may be struggling with  Hinduism (p. 83-84)  Beliefs of Hinduism (p. 86-87)  Spread of Hinduism (p. 89-90)

5 Hinduism Review  Now that we have had a short review time, we are going to create a only part of a Venn diagram about Hinduism and the religion we will learn this week: Buddhism.  We will finish this on Friday after you have had a complete lesson on it.  On the left side of your notebook, create a large Venn diagram. Buddhism

6 Vocabulary  Buddhism: a religion based on the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama  Ascetics: people who practice extreme self-denial as part of their religious live  Meditate: calm or empty the mind by focusing on a single subject  Enlightenment: a state of perfect wisdom

7 Siddhartha Guatama  Siddhartha was raised in luxury and wealth  “ I wore garments of silk, Night and day a white parasol (umbrella) was held over me so I might not be touched by heat or cold, dust, leaves or dew.”

8 Siddhartha Guatama  As he grew up his father protected him from anything unpleasant  He never saw anyone who was sick, sad or poor.  He married very young and eventually had a son

9 The Four Passing Sights  The legends say that one day he rode out of the palace without any guards.  He came upon the first of “the Four Passing Sights”  First, He saw an old man leaning on a stick  Second, He then saw a man shrunken by disease  Third, he saw a man who had died and his family was standing around crying  Fourth, he saw a wandering holy man who was homeless and had nothing but seemed content

10 The Four Passing Sights  That day he made a very difficult decision. He decided to leave his wealth, his comfort, his wife, and his newborn son, to become a monk  Siddhartha decided to search for the same serenity and calmness the holy man had shown.  That night he secretly left the palace and went into the forest.

11 The Search for Truth  He began his search by studying with Hindu gurus who taught him that life was an endless cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.  The gurus also taught that there was a path to salvation from the endless cycle but this did not satisfy him

12 The Path of Self-Denial  Siddhartha then joined a band of religious ascetics  This meant he denied himself of physical comforts  He wore scratchy clothes and didn’t take a bath!  He sat for days in one position while meditating  He began eating less and less and lost a lot of weight

13 The Path of Self-Denial  After 5 years, his body was very weak and he fainted.  When he woke up it was clear to him that this path was not the path to truth  When offered milk he drank it, this made the ascetics very angry and they deserted him.

14 The Great Enlightenment  A little while later while sitting under a fig tree meditating for 49 days.  The Legends say he was visited by Mara, the god of desire and death  She tried to tempt him to give up his search by giving him wealth and desirable things  When he denied her, she attacked him with rain and showers of rocks

15 The Great Enlightenment  He fell into a deeper meditation and saw his past lives  He understood the cycle of birth, death and rebirth  He then became aware that he had escaped that which tied him to the world and had achieved enlightenment  He became the Buddha which means “Enlightened One.”

16 Awakening the World  Buddha had freed himself from the cycle of rebirth and suffering but instead of being free, he chose to go back into the world to teach others  For the next 45 years he traveled across India, preaching the message of truth and hope

17 Awakening the World  Buddha’s purpose was to awaken the world to the true nature of life  Only with that understanding could people finally escape the cycle.  He attracted many followers and trained some of them to become teachers  When he died at about 80 his dying words to his followers were:  “ This is my last advice to you. All…things in the world are changeable. They are not lasting. Work hard to gain your own salvation.

18 Buddha’s Teachings  When Siddhartha Gautama gained enlightenment, he had a flash of understanding  These understandings formed the basis of his teachings

19 The Middle Way  Buddha began his teaching with the ascetics who had abandoned him earlier.  They tried to ignore him but he was so joyful they couldn’t  The Buddha gave what is called the Deer Park Sermon  He told the ascetics that they would avoid two extremes in seeking wisdom  1.a life given to pleasures  2. A life of painful self-denial

20 The Middle Way  He advised them to follow the middle way  “To keep the body in good health is a duty”  “For otherwise we shall not be able to…keep our minds strong and clear.

21 Buddha Project  I will give you an outline of Buddha  You need to color pictures and give a caption for important events in Buddha’s life…start in the top left and circle the pictures around clockwise in order of his life  This will be a very helpful study tool later on!
