Political Philosophy Of No Ideology

A Buddhist does not believe in Buddhism. Belief is not a part of daily life of a Buddhist. Truth is a means, not an end, and Dharma is to be discarded once its usefulness is exhausted. What is known as "Miracle of Han River" is not to be attributed to Confucian ethics, Oriental Calvinism or Barrack discipline. It comes straight out of Diamond Sutra: Dharma is not to be understood or made to be understood. That is a rejection of ideology as a core of political philsophy.

Korean Buddhism is the only Buddhism which accepts the internal contradictions and duality of Buddhism itself. As Deng Shao Ping of China said, you do not care if a cat is white or black as long as it catches mice. This is what Dalai Lama has been saying but people don't want to heed his saying. People want to worship him. There is no cure for ignorance.

When you find a man shot with an arrow, don't ask who shot the arrow.   Pull it out, then protect him.
