Buddhism in relation to pantheism and atheism
Quick question about definitions. I read that some schools of Buddhism would be considered atheism because it neglects the concept of an embodiment of God. In pantheism, God is the fundamental nature of reality, which is prominent in Hinduism.
Would Buddhism be accurately defined as atheistic because of no embodiment of God, or would pantheism suffice as one's path toward spiritual enlightenment? Or do definitions not matter?
Interested in hearing what you guys have to say!
