“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion.
“Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description.
If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism.”
– Albert Einstein
