Amazingly this religion is without a God. It was founded in India in the 6th century BC and some see it rather as a philosophy of life than a religion. Practiced by less than 10% of the world population, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, Buddhism is a religion to which one freely adheres and whose fundamental principle is to follow the example of Buddha in his detachment from self and mirages of the world.

Prayer wheels, lotus flowers, pagodas, sutras, meditation, cremation and resurrection of the soul are important parts of this religion which teaches that suffering comes from the desire to possess beings and things.

French narration with English subtitles.

Also available in French: Bouddhisme
