Modal Answer

Buddha was the greatest human being, explained the highest ideals, and incorporated them into the Buddhist religion.

Buddha’s Teaching:

  • He emphasizes peace, reason of sorrow i.e. Greediness.

  • He explained how to balance life, i.e. middle path.

  • His principles about non-violence, right speech, right thoughts, right action, right endeavor, etc.

 

Buddha’s Relevance:

  • Societal relevance:

    • Increasing intolerance around the world, increase in greediness, declining human values, increase in mistrust between the communities, etc. These issues can be solved by Buddha's teaching such as non-violence, right speech.

  • Economic relevance:

    • M.N.C must inculcate the principle of compassionate capitalism, proportionate profit, and always uphold human values.

  • Political relevance:

    • King,i.e ruling parties of government must be more compassionate, dedicated towards social service, and provide opportunities to the common people for upliftment.

  • Every human should uphold and practice the values such as peace, truth, non-violence, compassion, etc. Practicing these values will decrease the conflict in society and further strengthen the economy and polity around the world.

 

Solving the issues such as Increasing greediness, conflict in communities, and suicides due to unclear inculcation of value system require a stable orientation and ethical ecosystem which can be made by inhalation of Buddha’s values and principles.
