The word Bodhist was created from Sanskrit by shortening the word Bodhisattva and ended up one like another Sanskrit Bodhi with an Egnlish suffix -ist. Bodhist could best denote the practices and principles that we hold.
The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogmas and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. - Albert Einstein
