3.Trust in the Buddha as Methodological Imperative in the Academy

Overview
Trust in God was the Methodological Imperative that guided the hand of Western Scientists from the Greek times up to the time of Darwin and Einstein. In this paper, the author argues that Trust in the Buddha be the  Methodological Imperative in the study of Buddhism. It points out how Buddha encourages a diehard empiricism,  the Foundations of Mindfulness Meditation helping achieve it, to a level that would be the envy of the Seculareligionist scholar. The Buddha can be emulate for his superior knowledge from the micro (the mind) to the macro (to the Universe, as eg in the Aggañña Sutta). It invites Buddhist  scholars in particular to 'come out' to own up to their Buddhism, engaging in an Academically Engaged Buddhism. Click to view
