Characteristic

A characteristic of Buddhism, is it's the teaching which it's possible to include various kinds of understanding. All kinds of understanding – and right or wrong, good or bad, high, or lofty, or common. Buddhism has some possibility to put every teaching in right order, and to have understanding of each experience or knowledge – not only religion, but also scientific knowledge, by including all kinds of culture and effort of human being. This is the most important characteristic of Buddhism.----------------------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-10-00 as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on cuke.com - from there links to much more. Going slowly through Suzuki transcripts featuring whatever is next that seems okay.
