Awareness in Buddhism
Self-awareness: The ability to be conscious of one's own character, feelings, motives, and desires. Mindfulness: The practice of being fully present in the moment and non-judgmentally aware of one's thoughts and feelings. Reality: The state or quality of being real.
Buddhism has no creator God or divine being. Buddhists believe in reincarnation, the cycle of death and rebirth. The Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism.
