What are the values of Buddhism?

Buddhists value above all else having compassion for others and causing them no harm. A fundament of compassion is ridding oneself of anger, greed, hatred and other negative emotions, for in the presence of those it is impossible to feel loving kindness. So another value of Buddhism is equanimity. Another thing that is greatly valued is reason, since it is through analytical meditation, using logic and examining cause and effect relationships that we can penetrate the misconceptions we have about the true nature of reality.
