What is Dudeism?
According to dudeism.com, a website dedicated to deploying the wisdom of The Dude (Jeff Bridges) from the comedy The Big Lebowski, Dudeism is a religion with the following creed:
The idea is this:Â Life is short and complicated and nobody knows what to do about it. So donâ€™t do anything about it. Just take it easy, man. Stop worrying so much whether youâ€™ll make it into the finals. Kick back with some friends and some oat soda and whether you roll strikes or gutters, do your best to be true to yourself and others â€“ that is to say, abide.
In short, Dudeism is not Buddhism.
However, dudeism.com does list the Buddha as one of the â€śGreat Dudes in Historyâ€ťâ€”along with Snoopy, Gandhi, and Jerry Garciaâ€”citing the fact that â€śhe bailed on his birthright and taught that you should go with the flow.â€ť
