  • Re: Why Buddhism ?

    But, there are things I don't agree with or do not yet understand, so the mind remains open.

    Careful @vinlyn

    After I began to explore the Buddha Dharma I started to see the teachings of some of the other belief systems in a different light and found that if I so choose I could cherry pick similarities to the Buddha Dharma ..
    For example "Look Within" being quite a popular quote according to the teachings of some other belief systems (No doubt if one cherry picks enough one will find many more) ...

    But I stopped looking for these similarities because the Buddha Dharma seems to cover it all ( well the deeper one ventures into it/the self/the mind, things start to drop away, so to speak ) ...And for me personally, I have no need whatsoever to cling to any of the teachings from other belief systems ... Why should "I".....
