The goal of Bakkerism is much like the aim to Buddhism, to become free of suffering. Bakkerism also advocates the principles of free thought and reaching one's own true potential.
Bakkerism is sometimes seen as a very irregular religion, due to the fact that morals are not always placed at highest priority. Many traditional Western moral ideas are also left out and often seen by many Bakkerist as somewhat primative or unrealistic. Self discipline is taught in Bakkerism through mental training and general wisdom.
Bakkerism tends not to focus on supernatural existence, as it neither denies or approves the possibilities of their existence. For this reason, many Bakkerist often partake in other religious or tribalist ideas while still labeling themselves Bakkerist.
