Religion

This video is great because the main man in it is the Dalai Lama. He is the "leader" of Buddhism since he is a successor. In this video he discusses his guide to happiness through Buddhism. His words of wisdom in this video is a must listen, and there is even some humor involved, which surprised me. 

This video gives a brief, yet very educational summary of Taoism and the beliefs. This video would be useful for anyone watching.

This video explains how Confucius teachings are still adapted and used today. Some of the every day lessons we are taught at a young age, such as, "Treat others the way you want to be treated" are rooted back to Confucius teachings. This video explains some of the other important life lessons Confucius taught us.
