Buddhism in Eyes of Intellectuals

Ultimate fact of reality
“Here it is necessary to draw attention to another unique feature of the religion of the Buddha, namely, that it is the only religion of any religious teacher, which is the outcome of a consistent philosophy, which claims to tell us about the ultimate facts of existence and reality.  The religion of the Buddha is a way of life resulting from the acceptance of a view of life, which is said to be factual.  His philosophy is not without an account of the nature of knowledge.” 
Dr. K.N. Jayatilleke, "Buddhism and Peace"
