The basic tenets of Buddhist teaching are straightforward and practical: nothing is fixed or permanent; actions have consequences; change is possible.

Although there are some cases of syncretism, mostly a clear distinction is made between Shinto and Buddhism.

For that purpose we practice religion, or the dharma, or the faiths. I would suggest to study, to understand and to be critical. and that is adding Buddhism to Tantra. and I think this is a way for Buddhism not to be a cult. Desire and attachment are the causes of unsatisfactoriness and suffering. If you can’t tend to your needs because you have no moral discipline, Then intending to take care of the needs of others is simply a joke.

Here we need to recall, if only in passing, the brief but important document of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith "on certain aspects of Christian meditation" (10/15/1989). In New Mexico and Arizona, Buddhists and Native Americans have joined to launch meditation centers that combine teachings from both traditions and include traditional Native healing rituals.
