Do Buddhists Believe in God?

I do

I add to the Ocean’s joy
The tiny drop of water
its song
its tears
its story begun and ended in a flash

The Ocean gives
and receives
The cycle recycles
Each time I return
I add to the Ocean’s joy

      @Jenny Mao Hi Jenny, and welcome. Your comment appears to be spam as it goes to a commercial site…actually both your profile link and link in the comment go to a 404 page, so the links are broken. Anyway, Livefyre treated your comment as spam. However, I did want to give you the benefit of the doubt, so I manually approved your comment. 
       
      Your statement, “Buddhism is a way of life that can be applied to other religions” is true. I have heard some Buddhists make the assertion that Buddhism does not believe in God or god or whatever. My point is that because Buddhism is a way of life that can be applied to any religion the belief in God is not incongruent with Buddhism.
       
      I wrote this poem to share my perception of God within my understanding of a Buddhist concept.
       
      Thank you for making a comment. I haven’t worked on this blog for a good long while, and am going through a prioritizing phase in my life right now. Too many projects on the table. 🙂  Anyway, I hope life is being good to you, and thank you for sharing.
