Buddhism: A Religion of Practice
Melitta Adriana Stark
Abstract: This paper aims at the comparative study of Buddhism and other eastern religions proving Buddhism to be a proper religion. I have brought out the comparative studies of the major religions to show how Buddhism is similar to other religions and also to show how other religions are different from each other. All religions have a philosophy and when practiced all of them become a way of life just like, Buddhism. The existence of God (s) in religion is a controversial topic as almost all religions talk of an omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscience being. Often the absence of god-like reality, sidelines Buddhism from the organized religions groupings. Through this paper, I would be providing clarity on religion not existing only with a benevolent god and also would give a clearer idea about whether Buddhism is a philosophy or religion. Buddhism isn’t just philosophy, it’s a religion, and it deserves, the same significance any great religion of our world has. Also, this paper would set the wheel moving for further research on Buddhism as a religion.
