The Creed of Buddha
by Edmond Holmes
A Pantheist looks at contemporary Western views of Buddhism.
"What the science of the West is doing for the growth (and the development) of wheat and barley, Buddha did for the growth of the soul. He taught men that, if they would bring their lives into harmony with certain fundamental laws of Nature, their souls would grow--as well-tended crops grow--vigorously and healthily; and that the sense of well-being which accompanies successful growth, and which, when consciously realized, is true happiness, would be theirs." [From Chapter IX, "Light From the East"]
"THE CREED OF BUDDHA: How the True Teachings of Buddhism Can Revitalize Western Science and Spirituality" shines a brilliant intellectual light on the inner teachings of the Buddhist religion, and makes a convincing argument for the revolutionary role Buddha's unique, enlightened understanding of the mind and soul of Humanity may be destined to play in the revitalization of Western materialist science and supernatural spirituality.
