    Raëlism (also known as Raëlianism or the Raëlian movement) is a UFO religion that was founded in by Claude Vorilhon (b. ), now known as Raël.

      If you want to dive right into the Buddha’s teachings and read the actual sutras (discourses) that the Buddha taught to his followers, then you will probably enjoy this book. It is a very substantial book, being pages in length! The sutras are presented in this book in logical order under their appropriate topics, e.g. The Noble Eightfold Path distinguishes itself from many teachings in its positive, affirmative nature. Many spiritual teachings consist of 'dont's' — don't do this, don't do that. The Noble Eightfold Path speaks in positive, warm terms. Implied within the concept of 'right' might be its opposite, 'wrongs' — but Buddha taught self empowerment, not prohibitions.
