What is Buddhism (in three sentences)

The heart essence of Buddhist practice is abstaining from non-virtuous actions that harm others, and instead, practicing the 10 virtuous actions. The root of Buddhist practice is Compassion. The objective is the final attainment of Buddhahood, the state of complete freedom from suffering.
