      Victory and happiness in life is what Buddhism is all about. It is about accepting responsibility for your own happiness no matter what the situation or environment around you. It is about victory over our self – imposed limitations and bringing out our buddhahood and the buddhahood of the people around us.

    The Buddhist principles sound great. However (and this is a big however) what in the world prevents anyone from interpreting them any which way which suits themselves? “Follow the right this, the right that, and the right other thing.” But what are the specifics that say what is right and what is wrong?

      Right and wrong is very subjective. It all boils down to what you believe, what do you have most faith in.
