Re: Buddhism

 Buddhism isn't just a "philosophical way of life":

  • According to the South Asian tradition, it is a nastika ("non-orthodox", i.e. not accepting the Veda as authoritative) darshana (vision of the divine, glimpse of the numinous).
  • According to the East Asian tradition, it is part of the sanjiao (three teachings), an aggregation of belief systems undergirding the stability of the Chinese empire and by extension the whole world.
