To see is to believe. No one can say that a beautiful heaven or paradise or hell of fire exist where u can live .ALL these things are fictitious.Even in my minds cannot think of it. Buddhism is not like that. Buddhism is real. Buddhism speaks about the realities of Life. The belief or faith in Buddhism is not blind faith that rejects the criteria of reason or fanaticism, but faith rooted in reason. It is in fact of rational functions a procees of cultivation of wisdom that begins with a spirit of reverent searching.
Belief alone might some confidence, but belief in and itself does not guarantte that what we believe is true. In order to truly undestand the nature of Life and death, and gain genuine confidence, what we need is wisdom- penetrating insight rooted in the depths of Life itself.In addition, we need the internal power and fortitude to conquer our own weaknesses and fears, and to act confidently upon our beliefs, thus demonstrating their validity through our actions.In addition, we need the power of compassion and courage to enable others to transcend their own limitations and establish the true confidence and happiness in Life.
