: I have been asked by some of my non-Buddhist friends why Buddhists do not believe in a supreme being..a creator i.e. God. They ask then if there is no supreme creator how did we get here? Can someone offer me a source where I can find a response to these questions that is easy and simple to convey to these friends. I have searched in some of my books and have not found an answer. One of those asking this question is an interested family member and I would like to explain this to them. If someone on here can give me an answer so that I can respond to these people I would appreciate it very much.
The same very question was asked to Buddha by one
very learned Bramhins.Buddha replied
'O Bramhin if I give you a Mengo what you will do.
I will eat it, Bramhin replied.
What you will do after,Buddha said.
If the mango is very tasty, I will asked ,Which
tpye is the mango is , where it grows, what kind of soil is needed to grow it etc. the Bramhin replied.
Buddha said, if the mango is not testy what you will you do, O Bramhin.
The Bramhin angreely replied, 'I will throw it out.
So, Bramhin come to my Dhamma fold, if you find my
Dhamma is very sweet & testy you will get the answer of your question on your own, if you feel it is soure and bitter test, than leave my Dhamma fold and tell the world that I do not know the answer.
The Bramhin surrender to the Dhamma fold and became a very learned saint(MHASTHABIRA).
So, Dear Grace, it is Very Difficult for us to
prove or deny the exsistance of God.
In Buddhism, neither God has been accepted, nor been black listed. It is once indivisual wisdom & realisation to know or beleaving in God.
Like Since is silent about the supreme Creator,Buddhism also silent.
That is why Einstein once said " I do not need any religion, if I need one, I will embrass Buddhism".
with maytri to all
