Buddhists Believe Too!
Believing in the effectiveness of one tradition or method over another is a belief 😉
Belief is not a prerequisite in Buddhism. However, to choose to follow a certain tradition or method, we have to believe or trust that it will be beneficial to our progress.
Just as a scientist has to have an inkling of what they hope to achieve – they don’t merely mix chemicals together and hope! – so we choose a method that suits our temperament, psychological disposition and current understanding.
Again, as the Buddha instructed, “Don’t take my word for it. Test it for yourself.”
Wisdom is reasonable.
Knowingness is beyond belief.
