The Middle Way

The Middle Way is another name for Buddhism. Before Siddhartha Gotama (the Buddha) left home on his errand for answers he lead a very indulged life; one extreme. For several years after his home-leaving, he lead a life of crushing asceticism or self mortification; another extreme. He went from over indulgence to under-indulgence.

He found his answers between these two extremes.

If we look at life, many times we discover the answers we seek lie between the extremes.
