Religion 2.0

“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description… If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism." Albert Einstein

Adam Kahn discusses Buddhism here. Also see Intro to Buddhism and the 5 Minute Introduction to Buddhism.
