Your right about Buddhism being a philosophy. I live in Thailand most of the time, i find the energy here is far more agreeable to my natural karmic disposition. Although Buddhisim is more of a philosophy it has many of the hall marks of a religion. I understand why i fit in here, from a metaphysical perspective, im a Virgo, with many of my planets in Virgo, which is ruled by Mercury (Budha). i also have my Sun line going straight through Bangkok on an Astrocartography map. Mercury is the planet of communication, with good communication between all areas of consciousness, one can achieve a balanced harmonious holistic awareness, leading to higher vibrations within the awakening process.
