What does Buddhism offer you?

If you wonder what Buddhism has to offer you, the answer is: nothing. If you think that becoming a Buddhist will bring you all sorts of goodies and fringe benefits, forget it. There’s no dream prize, no paradise with vestal virgins.

 What it can help you do is cut through your confusion, your neuroses. It can help you understand yourself in the here and now and hopefully prepare the ground for a more positive future. 

Buddhism is incredibly pertinent to the world today. It’s twenty-five hundred years old, but it’s still the most intelligent answer to human needs.
