Tiger Woods’ Buddhist Confession

By February 22, 2010 News

As part of his public confession last Friday, Tiger Woods discussed his religious background. He said, “I have a lot of work to do, and I intend to dedicate myself to doing it. Part of following this path for me is Buddhism, which my mother taught me at a young age. People probably don’t realize it, but I was raised a Buddhist, and I actively practiced my faith from childhood until I drifted away from it in recent years. Buddhism teaches that a craving for things outside ourselves causes an unhappy and pointless search for security. It teaches me to stop following every impulse and to learn restraint. Obviously I lost track of what I was taught.”

This week’s lesson shows the difference between Buddhism and Christianity. You can download the lesson here.
