    Since there have been questions regarding Buddhism, karma and the involvement of reincarnation I thought I would post this link to a short and concise description of Buddhism. I particularly like the idea that it is a philosophy of living.

    As we pass from life to life, taking lessons with us, are we gaining wisdom? I like the idea that we as individuals must learn our own lessons and should seek to discern for ourselves "truth." Were the early followers of the Buddha onto something when they began discussions of the soul's migration into other bodies i.e. reincarnation?

    Yes, I think Buddhism has some very good explanations of how it all works.

    I feel like Buddhism is the most realistic, and most concerned-with-Earth-life religion :)
