      Yet in practice, Buddhism is very much a religion. As of , there were million Buddhists, representing seven percent of the planet's population. The . Most believe in supernatural phenomenon and even divine beings. Historians have always categorized it with other religions. The Buddha's teachings can be distilled into a philosophy and stripped of the religions stuff, there's nothing wrong with that. But Buddhism, as it is typically defined, is a religion.
