1.) What is our place in this world?
Buddhists believe that nothing is real. Once a soul accepts this and understands this, then they reach enlightenment, and the soul will be let free. Buddhist search their whole lives for this enlightenment, also known as nirvana. It is rare to have it occur in one life time, so Buddhists believe in reincarnation which is the idea of being reborn over and over again until your soul is set free. Buddhists believe in karma, which is the belief that what you do in this life, determines your future. This is why most Buddhists are strong to live the best life they can.
2.) How can we live the right way?
Buddhists believe you must be smart and wise. Being smart is when you know what is true; wise is when you know what really matters. You must learn and realize that nothing is real. Only a life of morality, concentration, can lead to the end of desire and suffering which will lead to nirvana. You must achieve this by the 8 fold path and the 4 noble truths
