Sorry to be pedantic Ed but is Buddhism really a religion or is it just a kind of spirituality? I always saw religion as being a belief in one or more gods, but in Buddhism it isn't about gods but enlightenment :sqconfused:

The monk in the video says he gets this question all the time and his pat answer is: "Buddhism is a religion for tax purposes." He claims that it shuts everyone up.

You mean I've got to watch the video!?! Well perhaps my soul will thank me even though my arse will complain about how long I sit on it.
