What is Buddhism?

GESHE TASHI NAMGYAL

 This Tibetan Lama once asked me - What is Buddhism?  

With confidence I replied:

Sila - Samadhi - Panna

Then he asked ‘But what does that mean?

And I said:

Morality develops Concentration

Concentration develops Wisdom

Wisdom develops Morality

He stared at me for a few seconds then changing his expression to a very warm smile he said ... Verrrry Good. 

The entire teaching of Buddhism can be summed up in 3 words:

Morality, Concentration, and Wisdom.
