|WHY LIKE THAT ONE?|
Many people declare themselves to be ‘Buddhists’ when in actual fact they do not know what being Buddhists really means. Many students (I was once like that too), when required to fill forms state their religion as “Buddhism” or “Agama Buddha” (in Malay) although they have no idea at all what the essential Teachings of the Buddha (Dhamma) is all about … let alone understanding and practising the Dhamma.
