Buddhism

Buddhism is the doctrine preached by Buddha and its later developments that hold that suffering is inseparable from existence, but that extinction of worldly desire and self leads to enlightenment which transcends existence and suffering. Many sects of Buddhism have evolved that profess many forms of doctrinal interpretation and observance. In Japan both Zen (meditative) and Shingon (esoteric) Buddhist sects profoundly affected the development and teaching of the martial arts (bujitsu) and ways (Budo).
