Buddhism characteristically describes reality in terms of process and relation rather than entity or substance.

Code of conduct

All life is suffering, full of sickness and unhappiness.Although there are passing pleasures, they vanish in time.People suffer for one simple reason: they desire things. It is greed and self-centeredness, which bring about suffering. Desire is never satisfied.

It is possible to end suffering if one is aware of his or her own desires and puts an end to them. Their awareness will open the door to lasting peace. By changing one’s thinking and behavior, a new awakening can be reached. This is called the Middle Way and can be followed in the Eightfold Path
