: One way to find out what Buddhism teaches is to read the Buddhist Sutras, since they are the foundational written/spoken teachings.
: To read Mahayana Sutras, you can check this site out: http://www.best.com/~mlee/
: To read Theravada (Hinayana) Sutras, you can look here: http://world.std.com/~metta/canon/index.html
: These should give you a very good idea of what Buddhism is about. But you may also like to know that Buddhism is NOT a way of thinking... a way of thought. Buddhism encompasses many more tools than just thought and to really know what Buddhism is about requires PRACTICE. Thinking about it is only the first step along the way.
