I am not at all sure it is not a philosophy. That is one of the things I am hoping to figure out. I have described it as a philosophy for years. However, as I am discovering they (philosophers) have some guidelines as to what is and what is technically a philosophy/Philosophy. We'll see where the "formal" lines are on that one. Until I know for sure it would be incorrect - I would still describe Buddhism as a philosophy. von Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
