Master Sheng Yen's Video Dharma Talk

Topics: The difference between Buddha and God

The difference between Buddhism and Christianity is that Buddha is a believer’s “teacher”, while God is the believer’s “master”.
"In Buddhism, "sin" is the bad karma one brings from one's past lives since beginningless time; it reflects the idea of causality, or cause and effect.
