  1. Buddhism is a way of living. A way of life. Buddhism is good. It is not a religion. Many people seem to think it is

  6. Ladies and gentlemen, believe in Allaahu, make none His compeer and follow His revelation Al-Qur'aanu (arabic: القرآن). Allaahu (arabic: اَللَََّهُ) is one of God's names that we can find in the Qur'aan. There is no God except Allaahu. Verily Allaahu, He is my Lord and your Lord, so serve Him. If you like to see or read the Qur'aan Mushaf al-imaam (arabic: مصحف الإمام ), here can you do it, if Allaahu wants: https://archive.org/stream/Al-mushaf-Al-Imam/al-mushaf-al-Imam#page/n0/mode/1up

  8. Shakyamuni attained enlightenment/realization through yoga meditation, The light within has been acknowledged as god for tens of thousands of years, before religion tried to give life a singular personality it could profit from in terms of controlling the minds of others. "There is no god higher than truth."- Gandhi

  10. Taoism, Buddhism, Confucianism are religions that are very logical and very straightforward in teaching philosophy. They’re also have the most peaceful people than any other religion. They almost never waged war, ever in history.
    This maybe why Buddhists don’t get a bad rep at anything. The teachings of Buddhism have always been the same, over time it’s monks especially famous ones have various good interpretations about their scripture unlike Christianity where it’s churches have divided so much and evolved so much it’s no longer recognizable as Jesus’ Christianity.
    I’m catholic and I really don’t go to church anymore. I just feel like Christian churches especially non catholic ones, has focused more on traditions and doctrines established by its priests and preachers instead of the love and understanding that Jesus preaches. They are also very hypocritical. Trying to look perfect and holy to others, when they could be just themselves and be down to earth like How Jesus was.
    Christians today feels like they only preach parts of Jesus’ teachings that focus more on recruitment and why it’s better than any other religion. It feels like a power trip by the Christian leaders because unlike Buddhists who follow their scripts more faithfully, Christian leaders seem to just twist the Bible to back up whatever their opinions are. When I go to church, catholic or not, it seems like they are just repeating the same things over and over again 8 times out of 10.
    Now,
    I just read the Bible and some English translated Buddhist scripts right now because I just can’t believe how similar some of the teachings by Jesus and the many Enlightened Buddhists.
    So anyone here who’s Christian, please just read the Bible and Buddhist passages. You might just become a better Christian by doing so instead of listening to preachers. If you’re going to church just for social experiment, I have no problem. But read the Bible and learn for yourself. Realize how much of the Christian doctrine have swayed away from Christianity.
    Priests and preachers are not God, so you should not go blindly following whatever they say. Because unlike Buddhist monks who interpret their scriptures for their secular brothers to understand buddhist teachings easier, priests and preachers have been infected with human influence. Human influence is also what started war and conquest in the name of Jesus. Human influence is also what started the wars amongst Christians themselves back in the 1500s.
    Even though the Bible is compiled and written by humans, the prophets and the disciples who wrote them are the closest to God than anyone could ever be.

  12. Guan Yin Citta is a Buddhist dharma door which has blossomed across the globe from Asian countries to Europe with around 10 million Buddhist believers and cultivators currently. It is a rightful and lawful Buddhist dharma door (even UN recognises on that), sheltered by the utmost Guan Yin Bodhisattva's all-encompassing mercy and love for sentient beings and Master Lu as the leading teacher. People cultivate by chanting Buddhist sutras and mantras, doing life liberations, making vows (e.g. becoming a vegetarian for the rest of their lives) and reading the book series "Bai Hua Fo Fa" to learn about Buddhist values and teachings. Many people who had cancer, mental illnesses, and all sorts of detrimental illnesses that were deemed incurable by doctors were cured. Many people who couldn't find their way out before have now found the ultimate truth and hope in life and have fully recovered from their past illnesses and karmic obstacles since cultivating under this dharma door.

  14. Lot of people i think do not know that in the ancient india there were 2 main traditions ..1)vedic -which today so called hindusim is influenced by. ..and second is 2) Shramanic which included buddhism, jainism and both of these tradition were completely diffrent….infact buddha rejected the vedas because of its rituals animal sacrifice , caste system and heavily relying on gods……
    Biggest difference is that vedic tradition is polytheist /pantheistic while Shramanic tradition is non theistic….

  16. I suffered manic depressive and bi polar disoder since I was 18 and during 30 years on an off to mental hospital.I finally attended a course of Buddhist meditation for 10 days. No mobile phone, no speaking allowed. and I realized that suffering came from one own's thoughts. and meditation is a mean to stop thinking and suffering. The only person who can help you out is yourself.

  18. we dont create our own suffering. sin causes suffering, we both sin and are sinned against. God made us to desire love and relationship and because of selfishness we are cut off from God and from one another. in Christ JESUS God is reconciling the world to himself by paying our sins debt on the cross so that we might be reconciled to God through his suffering. Suffering is redeemed in this place of love and compassion for the God who came down to suffer for us and with us. Love covers a multitude of faults. "This is love , not that we loved God but that he loved us and gave himself up for us. The righteous for the unrighteous to bring us to God"

I grew up in a christian household both of my parents are protestants but I always thew it wasn't my way so I began my spiritual quest and i came to the conclusion that Buddhism is my way and it's the only way to be a better person physically and spiritually. I've been a buddhist for almost 12 years now, my parents accept and respect me
