Nikki behold my 1429 word essay on Buddhism:

Explain the term Dharma and evaluate whether you think it is the route to true happiness

The 3 features of Dharma or path I’ve chosen are:
The four noble truths;
The noble eightfold path;
The 5 precepts;

In the most fundamental sense, Dharma is the element of validity working in the world, structuring all occasions, all experiences and all aspects. All things, all phenomena are called dharmas in the plural as all of them represent the true essence of things. Dharma also expresses the underlying system of righteousness, the universal law of virtue and honesty. Dharma also has a realistic sensation, something relevant to our own lives. Dharma is this which provides us, which sustains us, or which supports our endeavour to live in righteousness and honesty. In this spirit, Dharma is the pathway that achieves truth. The Buddha's teaching is called the Dharma.This teaching makes known the genuine nature of things, revealing the true nature of all living. Dharma teaches us that the happiness we think we have know is only temporary. It isn’t based upon the true reality. It’s based upon materialistic things. All of us are seeking lasting eternal happiness and most of us don’t know how to find it. As a result most of us suffer as we can’t find lasting happiness. What we are trying to find is well-being. Well-being isn’t about colouring . It’s about internal and mental happiness. Happiness can’t be found outside ourselves. Ultimate happiness can’t be found in friends or family it can only be found in ourselves. Most of us don’t think of the next life. We only think about whats going on in this life and allof these things can only give us temporary happiness. The mind doesn’t want to recognise that this is one in many lives. If you believe in buddhism you believe that you have had lots of lives and you will have loads of lives to come. Once you understand that reality you don’t become obsessed with all the worldy things. If we focus on our emotions, on our mind we are only focused on the thongs in this world. The things that we love, the things that we want, the things that we hate, the things that we desire -that fins the mind and makes us crave stuff and if the mind is doing stuff like that it can cause our own suffering and it can cause us to be unhappy. If we trained the mind to not think about thingslike thatthen we would be happier. If our mind is focusing on things other than what phone we have, what friendship group we are part of etc our mind is just focusing on things that can’t bring happiness. If we focus on love and compassion it will bring us happiness. We may not think this is true but when we do focus on this kind of stuff we will become more happier in life and become more loving and will start to see the world in a new happier way. The real way of finding happiness is focusing on dharma. Having a mind that focuses on self-care and compassion will make you see the world in a happier way.

Another way of looking at Dharma and if it brings happiness is the eighfold path. The eighfold path consists of 8 things:
The right view;
The right intention;
The right speech;
The right action;
The right livelihood;
The right effort;
The right Mindfulness;
The right concentration;

The right view and the right intention:
These two tell us that Harmlessness isn’t just physical it is emotional as well - by not speaking can affect someone in all different ways. You have to have an awareness of the people around you. Buddha believed that we are all linked together as people. Greed, pride and jealousy pollute the brain.. Possessions only give us short -term happiness. Spending money, going to the cinemas, buying a car is only short-term happiness. Buddha said that external things only give us stort-term happiness. We need to find the internal self to have true happiness. We should be motivated by compassion dn not want others to get hurt. We shouldn’t wish on someone to get hurt e.g mental manipulation, abuse, murder etc.. It helps you concentrate during meditation and will have a kinder and more compassionate mind.

The right speech, the right action and the right livelihood:
These 3 tell us that Moraltiy is knowing the difference between right and wrong.
There should be no gossip and no hate speech. Instead our speech should be truthful and kind and full of love and compassion. Love not meaning romantic speech love meaning respect and compassion. No killing, sexual misconduction, no comitting adultery, no cheating, no sexual perversion. We need to have right actions, We have to refrain from behaviour that is antifritical. Before we do an action what is the purpse of it. What is the action - oes it have a right intention? If it has a right intention then it will keep you on the right path of life. There used to be people in the past who used to be apart of slavery trade and there were people who worked in gambling and betting shops and selling alcohol and drugs - these are the wrong jobs and the wrong livelihood. When practicing right livelyhood its not just the occupation that matters it’s how you are when you have this job - if you are nice, helpful etc.

The right Mindfulness and the right concentration:
These 3 give you meditation (Samadhi)
Mindfulness - if we are in a state where our mind is open and free to new and ideas and rid of cravings we will be able to meditate more effectively.
These 8 things tell us that if we change our ways and try and live in a better lifestyle and think before we speak and act in nice,kind ways we will get to happiness.
Another thing that can tell us if Dharma brings happiness is the 4 Noble Truths.

The 4 Noble Truths are:
4 noble truths:
Suffering is an inescapable part of life - Dhukka;
Greed is a craving, Hatred is a lack of Knowledge and Hatred isnegative cravings;
Nirvana - getting rid of our cravings until allthat is leftis compassion for the world;
Path to happiness - the noble eightfold path.

Buddhists believe that by working within the Four Noble Truths they can stop suffering. The Buddha explained that the Noble Eightfold Path, which is the fourth Noble Truth, is the process to finish suffering. If a Buddhist can experience suffering and believe that it is achievable to stop it, then they can look for the process to end it. This conveys work and is not easy. However, by following the teachings of the Buddha, a Buddhist can ‘blow out’ (like a candle) the Three Poisons of greed, hatred and ignorance (the three things that perpetuate human suffering). In other words, when we let go of the destruction that craving problems, we allow our minds to be freed from unhappiness. This makes it possible to reach enlightenment.

The 5 Precepts:
Do not kill;
Do not steal;
Do not commit sexual misconduct;
Do not use harmful speech;
Do not partake in intoxicants;
These 5 things are things that can help us achieve happiness. By floowing these 5 things we can change our mindset, become more calmed and reach happiness.

Conclusion:
In conclusion I believe that Dharma can bring happiness but only if you do it correctly. If you follow the eightfold path, if you follow the 4 noble truths, if you follow the 5 precepts you can achieve happiness. If you try and become a religious buddhist you can achieve a calmed mindset and can achieve pure happiness but to achieve it you must change what’s within you and make yourself more self-aware of the things around you and become more calm and less angry and relax your mind. This is a true way to happiness. But on the other hand, you can bring true happiness if you put your mind to it. If you aren’t Buddhist you can still achieve pure happiness you just need to put your mind to it.
I believe that whether you are Buddhist or not you can achieve pure happiness if you put your mind to it but if you are Buddhist and you are trying to achieve happiness, using Dharma, the eightfold path, the 5 precepts and the 4 noble truths to name a few are a great way to achieve true happiness.
Happiness comes from within.
