1. This section is for those who are interested not merely in pursuing a good life or seeking better lives in future births. Other religions can also provide guidance for those goals to a certain extent. The uniqueness in the Buddha’s message is that there is perpetual suffering in the unending cycle of rebirths in “this world”, the root causes for that suffering, that there is possible release from that suffering (Nibbāna), and there is a way to attain Nibbāna.
2. The first stage of attaining Nibbāna is the Sotāpanna (Stream Entry) stage. In order to reach this stage, one needs to have a complete understanding of Buddha Dhamma (or the laws of nature). Since only a Buddha can discover these laws, it is not possible for anyone (no matter how intelligent) to discover these laws by oneself.
3. Once the Sotāpanna stage is attained, one knows what to do next. Thus there is no need to get further information from anywhere else. My goal with this site is to provide necessary information to attain the Sotāpanna stage, even though further information is also available for completeness.
Sotāpanna Stage of Nibbāna subsection has a number of posts describing the Sotāpanna stage.
