Buddhism is a religion that has different virtues that guide those who practice it.
with Hinduism, it's the most common religion practiced in Asia. Buddhism .
is known for the beautiful arts that dot places of worship, especially in Temples and .
homes. It is said that having some of the statues of gods in one's home is a sign of good .
luck and prayer to the gods is one of the most common practices in Asia (Washington, .
The arts of Buddhism are some of the major cultural attractions that stand out .
when one visits these places of worship. If we take for example, Temples in Japan, they .

changed his name to Buddha and had teachings that he passed on to his followers. The .
teachings were referred to as the Four Noble Truths: one, life is suffering; two, suffering .
is caused by desire and attachments to the worldly ideas; three; suffering is ended only by .
ending desire and attachment; and finally, to end desire. The eightfold Path has to be .
followed (Washington, DC, 2005).
The art of Buddha is a symbol of hope to those who practice Buddha, a source of .
encouragement to forge on through their daily lives. People look for something that they .
want to follow to fulfill their desire to be religious. Those who follow Buddhism know .
that they are not the only ones who suffered, their god did too. The statues and paintings .
of Buddha act as a symbol of hope to them.
Japanese paintings of sacred places such as sacred sites depict the emphasis laid .
on spiritual qualities tied to such places by the Shinto religion. One such painting is the .
painting of Mount Fuji, also known locally as Mount Fujisan. Its peaks are considered .
sacred and are some of the most popular tourist attractions. These places, alongside places .
of worship, are some of the sources of inspiration of all those who follow Buddhism, be it .
the monks in monasteries or simple Buddhist followers; the reverence of these areas in .
