What is the status of Buddhism among world living religions?

World living religions can be classified according to their doctrinal tenets into various categories such as:

  1. Theistic religions: believing in the supremacy of a divine being or beings.
  2. Atheistic religions: not believing in the supremacy of any divine being.

Buddhism belongs to the latter. It lays stress on virtuous quantities which every human being can develop. According to Buddhism, good knowledge and conduct (Vijja-carana) make a person excellent among divine and human beings. Good knowledge and release from all defilements and suffering (Vijja-vimutti) are Buddhistic ideas.
