Why do we need to talk about the Buddhist view of the world? First of all, we can’t regard Buddhism as an ordinary religion, nor can we regard Buddhism as superstition, and in fact, Buddhism is a culture. To describe in modern language, many of the Buddhist concepts are compatible with modern science. In our actual life, cannot lack these ideas, once without these ideas, we cannot understand the truth of the world. Without these concepts, we will make various mistakes and act incorrectly. Because of a lack of understanding of the truth of the universe, our lives will unfold with all kinds of afflictions and suffering. It is therefore essential to introduce the Buddhist view of the world.
