Buddhism is a religion


Buddhism is a religion. It is a religion because it is always bigger than the individual and if followed there will be times when it becomes inconvenient. A philosophy is something that can be woven and adjusted when it becomes inconvenient. It is important to be clear that you are involved in a religion and it doesn’t function to say that Buddhism is a ‘way of life’ or ‘a particular psychological approach.’
