The Origins of Buddhism: The Life of Buddha (Day 2)
Today's Learning Objective Know the life and moral teachings of the Buddha.
The Life of Buddha: Examining Multiple Sources Today we will continue read about the life of Siddhartha Gautama (The Buddha) and how Buddhism came to be. We will continue reading the version of the 'Story of the Buddha' created by the site buddha.net which you can find here, while recording key events from his life using the document Important Events in the Life of Siddhartha Gautama (The Buddha).
We will then compare this version of Buddha' life with excerpts about Buddha included in the Interactive Reading Guide of our Ancient Civilizations textbook below. We will also be watching recreations of parts of Buddha's life story featured in the the movie Little Buddha. Ultimately, our goal is to synthesize these three tellings of Buddha's life using our document Important Events in the Life of Siddhartha Gautama (The Buddha).
