A Buddhist channel on Youtube, LamaKungaChoedak, commented on this video and said,”Not bad.” I take that as a compliment. Here is an overview video I made to teach the core teachings of the Buddha. When you see Buddhism practiced in temples, you likely won’t recognize many signs of these teachings. This is why many people say that Buddhism, as it was initially taught, is not a religion, but a philosophy. As Buddhism spread, its philosophy mingled with the folk religions of the regions it encountered, and thus what we see now is largely not a faithful adherence to the Buddha’s teachings. I’ll make a video in the near future that will illustrates the different branches of Buddhism.
Throughout this video I suggest some talking points with Buddhist for beginning to interject the teachings of the Bible in relationship to Buddhism. It’d be great to read your thoughts on those discussion questions in the comment sections of this post.
