“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion.  It should transcend any personal god and avoid dogma and theology.  Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity.  Buddhism answers this description.  If there were any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.”
