Taiwanese Buddhism is rather complex. It follows the four noble truths, which describe the wrongs with the world and with self. The eightfold path then tells how to overcome these. Buddhists don’t believe that one is trapped in heaven or hell for all eternity, instead they believe in working to continually move upward through many re-births to try and ultimately reach the state of Nirvana.
Taiwanese Buddhists are very wealthy and have influence on TV and radio. They have become promoters of peace, equality and environmental movements.
