What other practices or behaviors are expected of a Buddhist?

A cornerstone of the Buddhist understanding of the world is that enlightenment can not be attained unless one has complete, uncompromised compassion for all sentient beings. All the practices of Buddhism are performed with the aim of understanding the true nature of the universe and of cultivating compassion. No specific behavior is required of a Buddhist, but it is understood that being kind, showing compassion and helping others are skillful means toward cultivating loving kindness.
