Duality and karma

Dear Editor

Re: Seeking a new god 

Buddha is a Sanskrit which means “awake” to be a Buddhist means humans are awake or aware. 

Your claim to be a Buddhist on the relative is true. 

You’re awake and aware of it. We don’t believe in original sin but the Buddha did teach of the four noble truths. 

There’s a book called What the Buddha taught which is a scholarly approach with definitions to Sanskrit words. Also there’s talk in the book of the dangers of duality and karma or causes and conditions.
