There are only hands & eyes: Zen Buddhism as Universalism | ReDial: Unitarian Universalists learning together |

I’ve been asked to address Buddhism’s universalism. I’m honored, but also daunted. As with all the great world religions that have been around a while, and Buddhism was first expounded by its founder some five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, giving theologians a lot of time to argue over points fine and large, as well as introduce a wrinkle or two, there isn’t one view of what Buddhism is.
