What About Buddhism?

A Simple Definition

 Throughout 25 centuries, Buddhism has combined rationality (logical thinking) with the testimony of one’s own experience.

It’s a practice that instills freedom of thought within the individual, while rejecting dogmatism, resulting in the release of humankind from the fetters of ignorance.

Fundamental to the study of Buddhism, is not the performance of prayers, but of meditation, which purifies the mind in order that truth can be realized making Enlightenment possible. Blind faith is dethroned and replaced by confidence based on cognitive science, knowledge and truth.

This simple definition is the outcome of the following equation: Awareness + Contemplation = INSIGHT.
