Is there any God in Buddhism? Is Buddhism an atheist religion? Which meditation practices are common? ... The author of this book had a dispute with himself, concerning all these deep-rooted philosophical questions, and therefore he started to write spontaneously, without knowing where his journey will lead him. Topics such as meditation or the rationality of the Buddhist etiquette are discussed, as well as the key points of several sutras such as the Diamond Sutra, Heart Sutra and Lankavatara Sutra are introduced in a very few words, and commonalities and differences between Buddhism and two other religions (Hinduism and Bön) are compared. The book is very useful for those who already have a basic knowledge about Buddhism and want to find an inspiration for themselves, especially if they are not sure yet, which kind of Buddhism suits them best.
