hroughout the world, but especially in America and Europe, someindividuals have been intrigued by Buddhism, spurred on mostly by the superstitious, secret, and awesome qualities they perceive inthis religion. Generally, those who adopt Buddhism do so not because they believe in the logic of its philosophy, but because they're attracted by its "mystical" atmosphere, drawn to this superstition because it is presentedto them as far more different and awesome than any other philosophy theyencounter in their normal lives. Books and films about Buddhism depictBuddha as the source of a great mystery. Likewise, Buddhist priests arepresented as possessors of secret, arcane knowledge. They fascinate Westernerswith their exotic robes, shaved heads, style of worship, elaborate ceremonies,dwelling places, meditation, yoga and other such strange practices. This book examines Buddhism's superstitious character in the light of theQur'an and lets you see clearly this superstitious religion's more perverseaspects. When we consider Buddhism's appearance, its scriptures, general beliefs, style of worship in the light of the Qur'an, we begin to see that its basicphilosophy is founded on very deviant doctrines. Indeed, its worship containsstrange practices leading its devotees to worship idols of stone and clay.
