Out of my talks with many Buddhists online, I gathered the following beliefs bordering on fatalism
That everything is impermanent and the teaching of dharma will not exist forever
That the influence Buddhism has already passed its highest point and is now under the process of decay.
That it is not surprising to see Buddhism in the world today as it is
That it is okay not to resist the onslaught of adharma in defense of Dharma
That it is okay if we died rather than disturb our tranquility of mind
In short, That NOTHING MATTERS.
Most of the people I have talked to were followers of Theravada. What I wish to know is whether Mahayana or other schools also have a similar mode of thinking as to the means to be followed. Is fatalism a character of Buddhism as a whole?Can someone throw more light on this?
