Critique of Buddhism by Advaita Vedanta

Published on Aug 5, 2016

Buddhism cannot be compared to Advaita Vedanta, why?

1) Because Buddhism is a philosophy, a belief system, an -ism. Vedanta is not founded by one person, nor is it a philosophy, belief-system nor an -ism.
Vedanta is simply a means of knowledge. Vedanta is just knowledge about your nature.

2) The NOTHINGNESS idea is illogical. It does not hold up to logical analysis. How does something can come out of nothingness?

3) No-self? How do you know that there is no-self? Does no-self know that there is no-self?
If everything is emptiness, if there is no-self, then how do you know it? How do I know what I don’t know and what I know?

4) Many teachings of Buddhism and Vedanta are actually very similar because Buddhism originated out of Vedanta. It is considered a heterodox teaching. Because it is a heterodox teaching, it misses out on many important teachings of Advaita Vedanta.

    Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta are exactly the same in that they are both maps and neither is the experience of the location.
