Buddhism Begins Where Religion Ends

 

Buddhism has NO REQUIREMENTS.

You are a Buddhist whenever you want to be or are doing something that you are willing to recognize is a Buddhist attitude or attribute.

So, You began life as a Buddhist.

When you were cool, you were a Buddhist.

When you were uncool, emotional, animalistic, or immoral… you weren’t a Buddhist.

So Buddhism began.

And now, since you’re here — Buddhism begins.

Buddhism is a decision, to utilize Buddhist inspirations.

So really, even if you’re here, you’ve got to ‘play the game’ to be in the game.

The game is life.

The rules are Buddhism. (Actually, Buddhism teaches you the rules are for children. Adults should just make wise decisions.)
