Religion: Noun: The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods. 2) Details of belief as taught or discussed. Buddhism IS a religion, and though the base beliefs of Buddhism is no god worship, there are sects that do. Personally, I love Taoism (pronounced DOW-izm) much more
I took a class that ended up discussing religion and the teacher said yeah, while there are sects that might worship a god, Buddhism is more of a philosophy because of that. Not to say it doesn’t mean the same thing to those that believe in it, spirituality is spirituality (but you don’t hear about Buddhists and Taoists terrorizing others the way you hear about Christians and Muslims) but I guess it struck us as different and separate from religion. But by that definition, yeah I guess it is lol. I just consider it VERY different from Christian and Muslim religions for the lack of a god and simple, wise teachings anyone should follow.
Although, other religions teach the same things, they just say some sort of prophet or deity said it. It’s interesting because they all have MANY of the same lessons but the teaching varies. I find it funny that so many can hate each other over a “different” belief system, when it’s really the same but with different names and people….. I digress. Thank you for that
