Tibetan Buddhism, Dalai Lama, and Tibet Problem in Chinese suppliers
In terms of epistemology, the source of knowledge is external—from God and from one’s fellowmen—while Buddhism places the burden internally—the self. Christianity teaches that man is incomplete, and that his salvation is dependent on God’s mercy. God is the ultimate source of knowledge, who bestows unto man the gift of wisdom so he can walk the righteous paths God intends for him. Buddhism, on the other hand, places the burden on knowledge on man alone: it is entirely up to man to discover knowledge for himself, and that the responsibility of attaining enlightenment is found nowhere else but in him (Thurman, 1983; Schmidt-Leukel, 2003).
