The 10 rules of Buddhism

Therules of Buddhism allow a person to respect themselves and those around them, to surpass themselves, to be at peace with herself and to know how to distinguish good from bad. They are a way of life, but not a cult. Several tips and spiritual guides emanate from these Buddhist rules. These are intended to improve a person's behavior and attitudes in daily life.

Have courage in life to achieve your goals

We know that life can be very difficult. Some impasses and failures can cause people to give up. Only, in order not to regret, you must never give up. Besides, you should know that regret causes suffering. So, in order not to suffer throughout your life, it is advisable to always have courage. The main thing is to learn from mistakes already made and not make them again to succeed in everything you do. Subsequently, having courage also allows you to flourish and be happy.

Moreover, it is essential to have goals to succeed in life. It is by having a spirit of intrepidity that we will be able to achieve them. The ideal is to write down small goals every month. It's much simpler than thinking about big goals.

Don't compare yourself to others

don't compare

One of the rules of Buddhism is also to have your own identity, your culture and even your belief. Indeed, we must avoid following and envying others. By doing this, one can be sure of not having peace of mind. Furthermore, we put ourselves in a negative state while betraying ourselves. What we can do is inspire the results of others to motivate ourselves to move forward. However, it is advisable to look back a little to the past so as not to make the same mistakes again.

To progress better in life, you must have your own values, your own convictions and above all always maintain your honor. The latter is the most valuable quality that every person should have. He inspires consideration and respect from others. By always defending honor, we can easily have values ​​that allow us to be unique.

Comparing yourself with others is a negative attitude according to the rules of Buddhism. This leads to competition and rivalry. This kind of behavior is prohibited in the Buddhist faith. Buddhists believe that each person has their own particularities, qualities and defects as well as intellectual abilities. Comparing them is not exhaustive and does not make complete sense.

However, the success of others can be inspiring to oneself. We can learn a lesson about positive results from other people's actions. It’s a way to succeed in your own project. We can therefore be inspired by the good works of other people, but we cannot compare. Comparing can harm your peace of mind. Human beings tend to be jealous of the success of others instead of taking note.

Choose your friends wisely

choose your friends

In the rules of Buddhism, it is imperative to select your friends carefully. It’s a great way to progress. It should be noted that there are friends who are unfriendly, encouraging people to do anything. Having a bad friend will also hurt the spirit. It can lead, for example, to taking mind-altering substances such as alcohol, drugs, tobacco and many others. The choice of friends depends mainly on the place you go. In private clubs, libraries or cultural places, one can find recommendable people to be good friends. The latter easily give better advice to accomplish objectives unlike bad friends who lead to failure.

The choice of partner and spouse is also included in this rule of Buddhism. It is important to choose your partners wisely not by their external beauty, but by their inner beauty. External beauty is only an artifice, an impermanent and superficial thing. If a person wants to follow a Buddhist way of life, he must carefully choose his intimate relationships through moral value.

Avoid selfishness

The 10 rules of Buddhism

One of the rules that Buddhist monks must also follow is to think of others. Indeed, you should not only think about yourself in life. Selfishness can hurt loved ones or those around you. If a person is selfish all the time, they end up losing friends or even lovers. To avoid no longer having a relationship, you should always do a good deed to serve others and above all expect nothing in return. Showing generosity without any particular reason can actually be a real joy for you. There are many opportunities to help. For some people, listening to them while showing interest can already be a great help. In addition, other ways to avoid selfishness are to learn to share, to let others put themselves first and above all to be happy for them when they succeed. Jealousy should not show itself in theBuddhism religion.

Feeling in another person’s shoes can change a person’s life. You can't actually be in another person's mind or body, but you can try to understand them by trying to put yourself in their shoes. Obviously, we must make the effort to think about those around us and identify their concerns and their suffering. When we identify their problem, we may have the ability to help them. The more we show empathy and curiosity for what others are going through, the quicker we understand them and we only think about helping and giving freely without expecting anything in return. This is the best technique to avoid selfishness.

Have self-confidence


It is necessary to have self-confidence in living life according to the prescribed rules of Buddhism. This can help in relationships with others and making important decisions. However, this kind of quality is acquired, not innate. Thus, you must learn to have total confidence in your potential and your values. To achieve this, you have to know yourself well, assert your personality and accept compliments from time to time.


To have self-confidence, the person must accept, without being egocentric, their value and their potential compared to others. She must admit that she is, for example, better in this type of area and that she publicly affirms. It is also important to demonstrate your talents and specialties without any embarrassment or shyness so that others are aware of your success, skills and potential. Once we have gained the trust of others, we logically trust ourselves.

Don’t put too much importance on objects

In the Buddhism religion, objects do not take up much space. They can influence emotions and the way we see life. If we get too attached to them, we can end up being controlled and turned into a rigid person. We are mainly talking here about objects that we no longer use and that we still keep. It is also the same for material and monetary values. Buddhist rules are completely selfless.


Buddhists believe that wealth such as gold, silver and power leads to vanity and lust. It is the main obstacle to happiness. Buddhist teaching leans a little more towards humility and simplicity. It is the best remedy for seeking happiness. Indeed, the dematerialization of thoughts and mind is one of the foundations of Buddhist philosophy.

Taking care of each other

Altruism is also one of the rules of Buddhism. Taking care of each other with apathy and love is one of the basic things to create happiness for yourself and those around you. Helping your neighbor is a virtue in the practice of Buddhism. This concerns charity, almsgiving and caring for a person you know or do not know. A person who respects the rules of Buddhist must support those around him in times of need or simply out of sympathy.

Good deeds are highly encouraged in the Buddhist religion, as it is an excellent path to happiness. We are often very happy after having done a good deed. It is this positive energy that leads to self-satisfaction and perfection. Indeed, giving makes a person happier than receiving. It is in this context that the Buddhist rules encourage the performance of good deeds towards others, society, towards one's friendly relations and especially one's family.

Make a lot of effort professionally


Buddhist belief states that nothing comes without nothing. It adopts determinism as its philosophy of religion. This kind of thinking defines that there is no consequence without a cause. This is the cause and effect relationship. To achieve something, you have to make efforts and work hard. According to Buddhists, idleness is the shortest path to failure. Only perseverance and diligence are the sources of success.

In reality, success does not come from doing nothing. It must be sought and found through personal challenge, will and ardor. We must always decide to succeed every day. We must be willing to work to get what we want and need. If it is necessary to make sacrifices, we must do so provided that it is worth it. This is how you achieve your goals and make your dreams come true. Perseverance of mind is therefore a moral value of Buddhist practice.

Focus on the present moment

The rule of life of Buddhists is simple. They focus a little more on the present than on the past or the future. They keep their mind in the moment even during a meditation. The reason Buddhists focus on the present moment is to always be grounded while being aware of beyond spiritual realities. Focusing on the past can harm spiritual balance. A person who lives in the past is never happy in his life. He will forever remain nostalgic and melancholic without hope and a lot of regret. A person who focuses on the future, on the other hand, is more of a dreamer.

She tends to be idle and lazy. She is unaware of the present moment and waits for things to come her way. An individual who focuses too much on the future is also too ambitious and vain. He already foresees what will happen tomorrow while human beings do not have this ability to foresee the future. Buddhists also tend to embrace their failures. They take lessons from each unsuccessful project and correct them later.

Don't be afraid of death

not to be afraid of death

The last rule that you must follow when you are a Buddhist is to not fear death. You must know that life ends and this is the natural reality. Everyone without exception can die at any time. You have to put this situation in your head. It is possible to not think about it too much by living life completely, enjoying each day with loved ones and friends. The best ways to overcome this type of fear are to resort to humility, inner peace and realism.

According to Buddhist belief, death is part of life. Death is also the beginning of a previous life hence rebirth. The Buddhist faith believes that after death the spirit incarnates in other bodies and comes to rebirth. It is the awakening and enlightenment of Buddha during his meditation under the sacred tree. You should therefore not be afraid of death if you follow Buddhist rules, because it is not the end, but the beginning of a new life.

@Leyla bnf : En disant cela tu prouves ton ignorance à propos des autres religions, et de surcroît tu accentues ton égoïsme à l’ego sur-dimensionné en pensant que ta religion est la meilleure sous un article qui n’en fait absolument pas mention. Alors, non, l’islamisme n’est pas la seule religion, loin de la, et oui, les gens ont le droit de croire en ce qu’ils veulent, aucune religion n’est au dessus d’une autre au risque de te décevoir. Apprends à aimer, avant de déconseiller et/ou propager ta haine des autres.
