AbstractAmong philosophical circles there are two fundamental ethical questions which are a focus of interest for philosophers of various schools. The first is the question of the supreme objective in life; the second is the question of what is to be used as a gauge for good and evil actions, for deciding which actions are right and which are wrong. We will be examining the Buddhist perspective on these two questions.
