Rules for moral conduct: The Four Noble Truths 1 Life is filed with suffering and sorrow 2 The cause of all suffering is people`s selfish desire for the temporary pleasures of this world. 3 The way to end all suffering is to end all desires. 4 The way to overcome such desires and attain enlightenment is to follow the Eightfold Path, which is called the Middle Way between desires and self-denial. Religious Texts: There really isint any, the Tibetan Buddhists have the Book of the Dead. But the only religious texts all Buddhists have in common is The Four Noble Truths, but since it only consists around 150 words it is not really a text.

Religious Holidays: Parinirvana (Death of the Buddha.) , Hanamatsuri (Buddha`s Birthday). Chunga Choepa (Butter Lamp Festival) Water festival. Rituals: Meditation, Mantras, Mudras. Gender Roles: None, Buddhism Teaches gender equality.

The Deer is a symbol of Buddhism because it is a direct reference to Buddha's first sermon.

Worship: Buddhist worship is called puja. People chant to show their love for the Buddha. They make offerings of flowers, candles, incense and pure water at a shrine. People thank Buddha for his teachings. When Buddhist worship alone they usually meditate and read from the Buddhist holy books.
