Nothing is real?

Posted: November 13, 2006 in Buddhism

Background: I met a friend, who seems to be new into Buddhism. I do not know where she learned about Buddhism, but there is one particular statement or perhaps questions she made that prompted my response.

Quote: “I wonder if nothing is real and everything is an illusion, what is the point of living? Why do anything if it means nothing? What do Buddhists believe about this?”
