      Response to "When is So-Called 'Buddhism' not Buddhism?"


      TDE Reader: I think the question can be rephrased thus – "What is the Buddha' Teaching and what is NOT the Buddha's teaching." In the Dhammapada, there is a little verse most Buddhist scan rattle it off without difficulty - verse 183:

      To avoid all Evil
      To cultivate Good
      To Purify one's mind
      This is the Teaching of the Buddhas

      This is not just the Teaching of Shakymuni Buddha, it is the Teaching of all past Buddhas and will be the Teaching of all future Buddhas to come. This is the Buddha's simple Guide of what is the Buddha's Teaching and what is NOT the Buddha's teaching. Yes, the Noble Eightfold Path is to realise this Teaching.

      TDEditor: Good points! That said, there were quotation marks for - So-Called "Buddhism" - which emphasises that some religions that call themselves Buddhism are not truly Buddhist.
