the buddha does not a teach a dogma to follow
The Buddha does not a teach a dogma to follow …
  • The religious life does not depend on dogmas concerning whether the world is or is not eternal. Or finite – or infinite. Why not?
    • Because birth, old age, death, sorrow, lamentation, misery and despair still exist.
    • These are what the Buddha is addressing.
  • “Bear in mind what I have not explained and what I have explained.”
    • The questions you ask lead away from the path.
