|Abstract|| The Bahá'í Faith and Buddhism are two different and apparently incompatible religions, but they share fundamental ontological principles. Thus, their analyses of reality and what it means 'to be' are largely compatible. |
|Notes|| Presented at the Irfan Colloquia Session #72, Louhelen Bahá'í School, Michigan (October 6-9, 2006) and at the 2006 ABS Conference (see program and abstract). Mirrored with permission from irfancolloquia.org/72/kluge_buddhism.|
