Albert Einstein on God and BuddhismReproduced From: www.spaceandmotion.comTheology-Albert Einstein
The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcendpersonal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both thenatural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sensearising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as ameaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any

Albert Einstein
)It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, alie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in apersonal God and I have never denied this but have expressed itclearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it isthe unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as ourscience can reveal it. (
