The Paradox of Our Age

Buddhism is a Philosophy of Life...A Psycho-therapy which explains the path of Life... No Need of God but just a Good Spiritual Guru... Buddhism depends more on understanding than faith...It is a Belief system which is tolerant of all other beliefs or religions...that is why there have never been any wars fought in the name of Buddhism. That is why Buddhists do not preach and try to convert, only explain if an explanation is sought.

Buddhist teachings can be understood and tested by anyone. Buddhism teaches that the solutions to our problems are within ourselves not outside. The Buddha asked all his followers not to take his word as true, but rather to test the teachings for themselves. ln this way, each person decides for themselves and takes responsibility for their own actions and understanding. This makes Buddhism less of a fixed package of beliefs which is to be accepted in its entirety, and more of a teaching which each person learns and uses in their own way.
