Monday's MeditationMom's Moment - Buddhism and Atheism 12/22/08

Q: Is it possible to be an atheist and a Buddhist?

MM: In the beginning, yes.

But eventually, Buddhism and meditation will destroy atheism - and all other "isms" - even Buddhism - in ones mind. The goal of Buddhism and meditation is an empty, open "beginner's mind" of "don't know" which is incompatible with any conviction about God's existence or non-existence, or any other conviction about anything else.
