We do not recognize sin and punishment in the way the Western religions do. No God or gods will punish us for our wrongdoings. We believe in the law of cause and effect. Whatever we sow, we have to reap by ourselves. The ethical aspect of Buddhism is based on clear understanding, not on make-believe. - Nyogen Senzaki
