PHIL ELLIOTT ANSWERS SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT BUDDHISM
Phil, I understand you are a Buddhist – what does this entail? Yes, I am someone who tries to understand and follow the teachings of Buddha. Some see it as a religion, others as a philosophical system, or as a psychological theory or therapy.
One characteristic of Buddhists is that they will not tell anyone that their view is incorrect, that their beliefs are wrong. No one of different religious views would be turned away from a Buddhist centre or meditation class. I see it as a profound spiritual teaching which gives great meaning to our lives, to an understanding of the nature of reality, and provides a foundation for living a good life.
