Fundamental Principles of Buddhism

     "To call something a 'fundamental principle of Buddhism' is only correct if,
          first, it is a principle that aims at the quenching of dukkha (pain, misery, suffering) and, 
          second, it has a logic that one can see for oneself without having to believe others."
