Philosophy or Religion?

One of the most common questions about Buddhism is whether it is a religion or a philosophy. I think this is a silly question that can devolve into heady conversations that do not benefit anyone. The Dalai Lama responded (kinda sorta) this way: “When it comes to Buddhism, philosophers find it too religious and religious practitioners find it too philosophical. Poor Buddhism, it has no place to lay its head.”

I usually answer the question by saying it is both and neither. It depends on your frame of reference. So it is better to discover your frame of reference and get to know the one who is framing the reference. Then you will know…nothing.

🙏🏼Much Love,
