What is Buddhism? (အပိုင္း ၆)

Do Buddhists Believe In A God?

Buddhism s a non-theistic religion in that one does not worship a God, creator or savior Progress on the Buddhist path to enlightenment is not dependent on an external force but on one's own effort. Buddhist cosmology does recognize the existence of heavenly realms, and the divine beings living there are very similar to what people would associate with gods or God.
