Topic 11 – Poly-spiritistic Buddhism

-------------------------------------------------

 

P1101. As I have mentioned, There are two major forms of Buddhism (a) agnostic Buddhism and (b) poly-spiritistic Buddhism.

 

P1102. Poly-spiritistsic Buddhism is ultimately derived from (and similar to) polytheistic Buddhism.

 

P1103. So the same arguments that we discussed (re polytheistic Hinduism) apply to this form of Buddhism.

 

P1104. Poly-spiritism subscribes to a hierarchy of spirits. With a highest Spirit.

 

P1105. That highest Spirit would be similar in characteristics to the Highest God (as in Monotheism). And all of the lower spirits are creations or manifestations of this highest God.

 

P1106. So, this leads to monotheism as well.

 

P1107. And such Buddhism is fine with sacrifices to the spirits to enable relationship with the spirits (or gods), and to have prayers answered, and to pay for our sins etc.

 

………………………….

C1101. So, Poly-spiritistic Buddhism provides NO reason to NOT accept Monotheism, and the teachings of Jesus Christ.
