Buddhism 101?




   by Reb Gutman Locks   

 

A question from the Philippines;

     "I am a Bnei Noah (non-Jew who keeps the Seven commandments of Noah). Can I delve into the philosophical teachings of Buddhism, but not doing their customs and worship? Does Judaism have the same perspective with Buddhism about suffering?   

Gutman's answer:

     If you take what you call the philosophical teachings, the spiritual teachings will also come along.

     Regarding suffering; they do not teach what the Torah teaches, not at all. For instance, they teach that all life is suffering, and we say that life is a gorgeous opportunity to inherit the World to Come.

  1. The Ben Noach is obligated, along with Jews, to put his full faith and trust in Hashem ONLY! Everything else is considered idol worship.
