“If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts, happiness follows them like a never-departing shadow.” - Buddha
“One of the greatest Sons of Light to ever appear to humanity is commonly called “The Buddha”…
When His nearest disciples asked, “Great One, what are You?” He simply replied: “I am… awake.” He made no claims other than that His spiritual eye had been awakened to the ultimate unity of the One Mind.
Rather than form another religion filled with anthropomorphic deities and dogmatic beliefs, Buddha set out to create a living philosophy that would be free from the divisive tendencies and unprovable claims contained in many theologies. He stated that proof of His Teachings would come by way of productive personal experience to anyone willing to try the methods for themselves. Through the ages, many millions have come to agree with this approach. Religious dogmas fixate on GOD; Buddhist teachings focus on YOU.
Though the many expressions of Buddhism share much with other organized religions, Buddha’s Teaching was offered to the world as something unique and complementary. Buddhism is neither an atheistic unfaith nor a theistic faith; it is a non-theistic philosophy of practical ethics and secular virtues.”

“Lord Buddha’s insight as to the need for a universal system of secular ethics rings true today as it did thousands of years ago.” - Justin S. Grant, MA ✨
