What other “Religion” says this?

And that’s why we call Buddhist “non-theistic.”

It’s not about dogma, even tradition: it’s about reality.

Buddhism is about meditation: about coming back from our discursive mind to reality, dealing with it, and learning to rest in the present moment wherein our basic fundamentally clear, king human nature can express itself through dedicating our short human lives to the welfare of all. With a sense of humor. That’s about it.

That said, Buddhism’s no better than his or her or your or my religion, or lack thereof. There’s no perfect religion. There’s no perfect community.

As the Dalai Lama and Trungpa Rinpoche frequently encouraged, explore your own traditions, your own life thoroughly, and honor that. No need to shop around.
